Melbourne is where the best horse racing action is at this Saturday with Warwick Farm in Sydney looking more and more like a washout.
Racing is set to kick off at 1:10pm (VIC time) at Caulfield and continues right through until Race 8 at 5:46pm, giving punters plenty of events and plenty of time to pick and back a winner through Luxbet!
The first of the black-type quartet highlighting the card is Caulfield Race 4 – the $100,000 Listed Emirates Airline Stakes (1100m), formerly the Chairman’s Stakes, at 3:10pm where 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes favourite Jimando dominates the Luxbet markets.
Race five at 3:50pm is then the $100,000 Listed Shadwell Stud Australasia Stakes (1200m) or Manfred Stakes where Crown Oaks winner Mosheen races first-up for the season against a crack field that includes David Hayes’ emerging sprinter Rifleman and the in-form John Hyam-trained Petman.
Stakes racing continues at 4:30pm with Race 6 – the $100,000 United Arab Emirates Stakes (1000m), also known as the W.J. Adams Stakes, which is shaping up as s super sprint showdown between the likes of the ultra-consistent Bel Sprinter, last-start Canterbury Classic winner Unanimously and Peter Moody’s smart mare Kulgrinda.
The final headliner on the Caulfield race card is then Race 7 at 5:10pm – the $100,000 Reaam Plate (2000m), the Mornington Cup Prelude to feature a nine-horse field following the early scratching of Luxbet favourite The Big Steel.
