Last year’s Silver Slipper winner Satin Shoes is just one of the quality horses named in the final field for the 2012 Euclase Stakes, which stands as the second biggest race on Monday’s Adelaide Cup Day race card.
Formerly known as the Yallambee Classic, the Group 2 sprinters event is worth $250,000 and will be run over 1200 metres.
The Clarry Conners trained Satin Shoes has five wins from 17 starts and will run from barrier four on Monday.
Adelaide Cup day is one of celebration with Adelaide residents receiving a public holiday. One person that could have extra reason to celebrate is Celebrity Girl trainer Mark Kavanagh.
The three-year-old filly has three wins from six career starts and is coming off a a victory in the Projection Graphics Redelva Stakes at Morphetville last start.
A born sprinter, Celebrity Girl will come out of barrier nine on Monday with Michael Rodd in the saddle.
Hot Spin is another Euclase Stakes runner that is coming off a victory last start, with the gelding taking top honours in the Champagne Pommery Plate at Caulfield on February 25.
The Caulfield victory was preceded by placings in two previous starts for the Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained gelding.
Another horse that is bound to be in contention on Monday is the David Bourne trained Zamorar.
The gelding has three career wins from five starts and won his last start at Moonee Valley on February 10. One problem for the three-year-old could be the barrier draw, having drawn the widest gate of the 12 horses named to run.
Other horses named in the final field for the 2012 Euclase Stakes include Alchemy’s Eight, Niconoise, Petman and Snitzem.
