Salinger Stakes Form Guide – Derby Day 2011

Sister Madly

Sister Madly was second to More Joyous last start and has every chance in the Salinger Stakes

The 2011 Salinger Stakes form guide shows that a good deal of these horses have winning claims coming into the event which will jump as Race 7 on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington this Saturday.

The field of 14 packs plenty of speed between them and up the Flemington straight it’s going to be a real crash and bash assignment.

Below we’ve mapped out the form guide for every runner and listed just what they’re bringing to the table.

As it currently stands there’s no real clear cut favourite with punters spreading the joy across at least half a dozen runners.

2011 Salinger Stakes Form Guide

Black Piranha

Consistent old sprinter that will be somewhere near the money after flying home late. 1200m could be a bit short for him though after a short freshen up in the paddock.

Temple Of Boom

Won the Gilgai Stakes in tremendous fashion and he’s developed a real liking for the straight six at Flemington. In fact it’s the only track he’s race don this prep, two from three shows how good he’s going.


Finally found a win last start after taking a sit early on, before that he’s been ridden stupidly out in front. Hopefully Joe Pride has learned now, if he has Neeson is a chance.


Second over in Adelaide last start so you’d say he needs to improve with the jump in class. That said he’s won five and run second three time over this trip.

Phelan Ready

Fantastic horse, he just doesn’t win! Sounds strange but you can expect him to be somewhere near the money again. Whether he’s first or not is a different story.

Sister Madly

Second to More Joyous last start, second to Sepoy before that and won before that. She’s a fantastic mare and has every chance here.


Grand old sprinter who was racing extremely well, had has chance to win in an easy race last start and blew it to run last at Cranbourne. Previous to that he’s been a model of consistency, hopefully he brings that back to Flemington.

Ego’s Dare

Fourth in the Shorts not too far away but that run was more than a month ago. Loves the 1200m but might be lacking a touch of class.

Mid Summer Music

Really good horse and after running third to Sepoy in the Caulfield Sprint she’s every chance here. She also ran second to Pinker Pinker before that so the forms been franked after that Cox Plate win.


Second to Sepoy last start and was only a touch over a length off him. If he was in this race he’d be a hot favourite so Curtana has to be a big shot.


Won two starts back but just couldn’t go with them at Listed level last time, don’t think so here.

Stirling Grove

Ran third behind Black Caviar and Karuta Queen last time which isn’t bad form but it can also be confusing given it was a relatively weak field apart from them. He’s two from two at the track though albeit in lower grades.


Rand second at Randwick last time out, that was at Listed level but in a much weaker field. Needs improvement but draws well in seven.


Good Queensland runner but needs heaps of improvement after running third last in that Randwick Listed event.
