The Group 2 Sunline Stakes will run as Race 6 at Moonee Valley this Friday night March 25, 2011, and the final field and barrier draw for the race has now been released.
The 1,600 metre Sunline Stakes is a standard weight-for-age race open to mares aged four-years-old and upwards.
This year’s Sunline Stakes has attracted a final field of 15 starters plus one emergency.
Featured in the 2011 Sunline Stakes final field is Robert Smerdon’s Lady Lynette.
Lady Lynette, who was forced out of the Group 1 Coolmore Classic field due to an elevated temperature, has won three of her past five starts including the Group 3 Tesio Stakes on October 23, 2010.
Last start, the Ladoni mare finished fifth in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy after her rider, Craig Newitt, was charged with careless riding.
Lady Lynette has drawn barrier 1 for the 2011 Sunline Stakes and will be this time ridden by a different jockey; Michael Guthrie.
Also included in the Sunline Stakes final field is Michael Moroney’s four-year-old mare Platinum Passion.
Platinum Passion has won three of her eight starts so far and has finished second by a short nose in both her last two starts.
Most recently, Platinum Passion finished second by a whisker to Pinker Pinker in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy at Flemington on March 12, 2011.
The Redoute’s Choice mare will be ridden by jockey Mark Zahra in the 2011 Sunline Stakes and will jump from barrier 13.
The 2011 Sunline Stakes final field also features Peter Moody’s Set For Fame, Mark Webb’s Avienus and Grahame Begg’s Pagan Princess.
