Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival 2012 Preview & Program

We’ve said goodbye to the spring and it’s clear the new-season action in Australia is nearing its peak as the 2012 Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival fast approaches.

One of the summer’s biggest series of race meetings, the AAMI Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival is scheduled to kick off on January 22 with Hobart Guineas Day and will continue through until February 29, 2012 when the festival culminates with Launceston Cup Day.

A trio of Group 3 races highlight the racing line-up in Tasmania this season starting with the $150,000 Group 3 Bow Mistress Stakes (1200m) for fillies and mares on Sunday February 5, Tasmanian Derby Day.

The highly anticipated $300,000 Group 3 AAMI Hobart Cup (200m) follows on Sunday February 12 before the Group racing action finishes up with the $225,000 Group 3 AAMI Launceston Cup (2400m) on Wednesday February 29.

Already a number of exciting stayers have been named as possible Hobart – Launceston Cup candidates this year including David Hayes’ progressive Victorian mare Unchain My Heart.

The five-year-old daughter of Al Maher burst into 2012 Launceston Cup calculations when she burst through to win the Listed Bagot Handicap (2800m) at Flemington on Monday January 2.

With winning form up to 3000 metres, Hayes has the Launceston Cup in his sights for the super consistent stayer who has now won four of her past five starts.

“Everything now looks set to proceed with plans to run in the Launceston Cup and then head to South Australia for the Adelaide Cup,” Unchain My Heart’s owner, Prime Thoroughbreds director Joe O’Neill, said on Tuesday.

“David (Hayes) has always said she would make a stayer and since she won at Randwick on Melbourne Cup Day she’s had five goes at 2400 metres or further for four wins and a second.”

The $400,000 Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) runs at Morphettville on March 12.
