Betting, Barriers & Field – Southern Cross Stakes 2012

Secret Admirer is favourite to take out this Saturday’s 2012 Southern Cross Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse.

The four-year-old mare has won three of her ten race starts and has earned more than $830,000 in prize money.

Secret Admirer will be first-up in the 2012 Southern Cross Stakes after having a summer spell following her spring racing campaign last year.

The Dubawi mare finished third in her last start in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes and is paying odds of $4.20 at Luxbet to win the 2012 Southern Cross Stakes.

Neeson is presently on the second line of Luxbet Southern Cross Stakes 2012 betting at $4.60, while Latin News is third favourite paying $6.

Sainthood is also returning to the racetrack in the 2012 Southern Cross Stakes for the first time since he appeared in the Group 3 BRC Sprint at Doomben last May.

Trainer Rick Worthington said the long leave of absence was due to a wrenched joint injury he sustained in the race.

“We thought he was okay when he raced at Doomben. The vets had given him the green light but clearly he wasn’t okay,” Worthington said.

“I aborted his campaign and brought him back and had him thoroughly investigated.

“As a result of wrenching the joint he had also dome some damage to the joint.”

Worthington has realistic expectations about what to expect from sainthood in the 2012 Southern Cross Stakes, where he is paying odds of $11 to win the race.

“Traditionally, Sainthood has trialled well then tapered off,” Worthington said.

“I’m hoping with the combination of a long spell, the arthroscopic surgery and the management procedures we’ve put in place, along with a different approach to training him, that that won’t happen this time.

“At the moment he is happy and healthy and if a horse with ability is happy and healthy they usually perform well.”
