Warwick Farm Nominations – 2011 Randwick City Stakes

Warwick Farm’s Randwick Guineas Day will take place on March 12, 2011, and nominations for the 2011 Randwick City Stakes have now been released.

The 2011 Randwick City Stakes is a stayers race run over 2,100 metres and is worth $125,000 in prize money.

Open to three-year-olds and over, the 2011 Randwick City Stakes is a Group 3 race run under quality handicap conditions.

Chris Waller’s Hawk Island is amongst the 2011 Randwick City Stakes nominations.

Hawk Island has won nine of his career starts, but has never been able to place at Group level.

The six-year-old gelding has been allocated ballot number one in a race that has seen 16 horses nominate for a 12 horse starting field.

Despite being allocated the highest weight in the field (59.5kg), it is unlikely his performance will be attenuated by any degree, since he won his last start in the Listed Parramatta Cup as top weight by 3.5 lengths.

Also nominated is Hawk Island’s stablemate Beijing Boy, who finished fifth in the Listed Parramatta Cup.

The Yamanin Vital gelding has a career record that has seen him win eight of his 21 starts and accrue almost $225,000 in prize money.

Jim Conlan has also nominated his five-year-old gelding Larry’s Never Late for the 2011 Randwick City Stakes.

Larry’s Never Late claimed victory in the Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundations Stakes last preparation, but put in a disappointing run in his last start on February 19, finishing seventh.

Also included in the 2011 Randwick City Stakes nominations are Gai Waterhouse’s Lorne Dancer and Lee Freedman’s Above Average.
