2011 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes Field, Barriers & Weights

This Saturday March 5 a bumper nine-race programme featuring no less than seven Group events will take place at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse, the action kicking off with the $150,000 Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m).

Getting things underway at 11:30pm (AEDST), Flemington Race 1 the 2011 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is a quality race for two-year-old fillies and has drawn a final field of 13 acceptors.

Top-rated entry in this year’s Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is consistent Tasmanian filly Triple Asset drawn in barrier six and due to be ridden by Michael Rodd.

The John Keys-trained Triple Asset is yet to finish out of the money in her five career starts to date including her smart last start win by 3 ½ lengths in the Tasmanian Magic Millions 2YO Classic on February 23.

Saturday will be Triple Asset’s first run outside of her home state of Tasmania, but her record suggests she has the talent to be competitive in the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes.

Likely to start one of the favourites in the Flemington Race 1 betting at Luxbet this Saturday is the Peter Moody-trained Metonymy.

Hotel Grand filly Metonymy most recently ran a credible fourth behind run-away winner Sepoy in the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield on February 26 and has drawn well with barrier five on Saturday.

Moody has also entered his unraced Mossman filly Plucky Belle for the Thoroughbred on Saturday.

Other Top Picks in the 2011 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes Field:

  • Holdontoyahorses (Mick Price) – Dane Shadow filly has won two of her four career starts and was not disgraced running fifth in the Blue Diamond Stakes
  • Ervbefel (Michael Kent) – Drawn ideally in barrier two with Craig Williams booked for the ride, won on debut at Ballarat in early February before running sixth in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) at Flemington last start
  • Dinner Date (David Hayes) – Mossman filly won the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes last year, should show improvement after two disappointing first-up runs this year more suited to the Flemington track

The major features on the Flemington Super Saturday race-card this weekend are the $1 million Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1600m) where World Champion sprinter Black Caviar is out to make history and win her 10th consecutive metro race from as many starts, and the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) where Heart Of Dreams is the favourite to win at Luxbet.
