The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) which will take place at Caulfield Racecourse this Thursday January 26, 2012.
12 horses have accepted for a run in the race, including Anthony Freedom’s Sabie.
Sabie has won both her previous race starts, with her most recent win being at Moonee Valley Racecourse on January 13, 2012.
The Exceed And Excel filly has more than $25,000 in prize money across her first two career runs.
Sabie has drawn barrier 11 for the 2012 Blue Diamond Preview and will be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy.
Robert Smerdon’s Members Joy is also included in the 2012 Blue Diamond Preview final field.
The Hussonet filly won on debut in the $70,000 Swettenham Dash For Cash Plate last start, where she beat her closest rival by 2.5 lengths.
Smerdon believes Members Joy has the talent needed to win the Blue Diamond Series, however, understands it is a tough task.
“She’s certainly got some talent, to my mind, to be successful at black type level but how far that takes her through the Blue Diamond series remains to be seen,” Smerdon said.
“Thursday will give us a good guide whether she is up to them.
“She worked (yesterday) on the steeple grass over a half mile on her own and pinged home really well.”
Members Joy has drawn barrier 10 for the 2012 Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) and will be ridden by jockey Mark Zahra.
