The 2012 Euclase Stakes is the second major race of the Adelaide Cup Race Day to be held at Morphetville on Monday March 12.
Formerly known as the Yallambee Classic, the 1200 metre Group 2 race worth $250,000 is a high quality event.
Amongst the quality nominated for the 2012 Euclase Stakes is Michael Moroney trained horse African Pulse.
The colt has three wins from five trips to the track, including victory over well known filly Karuta Queen in the Schweppes Tonic 1000 in November.
Last year’s Silver Slipper winner Satin Shoes, if in the final field, will be amongst the chances with the Clarry Conners trained filly having recorded five wins from 13 starts.
Celebrity Girl has been nominated and is coming off an impressive victory last start in the Project Graphics Redelva Stakes at Morphetville.
The Mark Kavanagh trained filly will be looking to add to her already impressive three wins from six races on a day that is a public holiday for Adelaide residents.
Another horse coming off a victory in their last start is the Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained gelding Hot Spin.
He won the Champagne Pommery Plate at Caulfield on February 25 following a third-place-effort in the Scwheppes Rubiton Stakes earlier that month.
