Coolmore Classic Day is all set to take place this Saturday March 19, 2011, and the Races.com.au team has put together the best 2011 Phar Lap Stakes tips to help you back a winner this weekend.
The 2011 Phar Lap Stakes is a Group 2 race worth a tidy $175,000.
Run over 1,500 metres, the Phar Lap Stakes is a set weights race open to three-year-old colts, fillies and geldings.
This year’s Phar Lap Stakes includes nine talented runners, including Gai Waterhouse’s Halekulani, who we are tipping to finish first.
Halekulani has won two of his first five starts and finished third in his last run in the Listed Eskimo Prince Stakes on March 12, 2011.
The Encosta De Lago gelding is currently paying odds of $5.50 to win the 2011 Phar Lap Stakes at Luxbet.
Halekulani will jump from barrier six and will be ridden by jockey Tommy Berry.
Bullbars is fresh off his brave second place run in the Australian Guineas at Flemington last start on March 5, 2011.
The Elusive Quality colt was very impressive in his last run, and has not finished worse than second during his current preparation.
Bullbars won the Group 3 C.S. Hayes Stakes on February 19 and has displayed that he is capable of holding his own against the top guns in racing.
Finally, the Races.com.au team’s Phar Lap Stakes tips feature Fast Clip as our pick for third.
We are confident that Gai Waterhouse can get the double in the 2011 Phar Lap Stakes with Fast Clip and our pick for first, Halekulani.
While Fast Clip will be stepping up to Stakes level competition for the first time in his young career, the three-year-old gelding is in brilliant form, winning three of his four race starts this preparation and placing second in the other.
The Snippetson gelding is currently paying odds of $3.80 at Luxbet.
