2011 Mode Plate Field – George Moore Stakes Day Races

Acceptances have been taken for the bumper eight-race George Moore Stakes Day program at Doomben this Saturday including those for the Mode Plate 2011, the three-year-old fillies’ classic running as one of two black-types at the meeting.

With the day headlined by the $125,000 Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) which drew a full field, Luxbet punters and race fans will also be keenly awaiting Doomben Race 6 at 3:35pm (local time) – the $100,000 Listed Carlton Mid Mode Plate (1200m).

A final field of 16 starters plus a single emergency make up the 2011 Mode Plate field, three of the hopefuls coming off last-start victories with the Garnett Taylor-trained Divine City, Mark Webb’s Embellish and the Trevor Whittington-trained Gift Of The Day all looking to go back-to-back.

Ferocity filly Divine City was an emphatic four length winner at Rockhampton on November 24, but has had her chances of a Brisbane stakes win hampered with a horror barrier 13 draw.

Embellish also drew poorly for the Mode Plate, the Toowoomba-based galloper to jump from 12.

Gold Coast raider Gift Of The Day fared much better in the barriers, the Red Dazzler filly having scored a narrow win at her home track last Saturday when overcoming gate 11 of 12 so with a nicer draw she could be one to watch in the Luxbet markets.

Other Mode Plate 2011 runners that came up trumps in the gates include Gillian Heinrich’s dual stakes winner Military Grace (barrirer two), Group placegetter Hollyweird (barrier six) having their first start for their new trainer Trevor Bailey having previously been prepared by Gerald Ryan in Sydney, the lightly-raced Sequalo three-year-old Ticket To Dream (barrier five) and Bahama Flyer to have the rails one from barrier one.
