Saturday Horse Racing – 2011 Lightning Stakes Day

Today, Saturday February 19, racing fans and punters should be gearing up for a great day of racing with 11 TAB meets lighting up tracks around the country including the bumper 2011 Lightning Stakes Day programme at Flemington.

Saturday racing at Flemington will see three Group races take place including the marquee event, the $750,000 Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) where the world’s highest rated sprinter Black Caviar resumes as the odds-on favourite.

Currently Black Caviar is at $1.35 to win the 2011 Lightning Stakes today at Luxbet while her closest rival is $5 second favourite Hay List.

The other major metropolitan meet running this Saturday is the action-packed Apollo Stakes Day schedule at Rosehill Gardens.

Headlining the Sydney race card today is the $250,000 Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), betting on the weight-for-age showdown dominated by $3.50 favourite Hot Danish.

Three other Saturday metro meets are also on the agenda today with Doomben, Morphettville and Ascot host to plenty of super showdowns including a number of black-type races running at Adelaide and Perth.
