2012 Wenona Girl Handicap Field & Barriers

A bumper field of 17 mares has been accepted to race in the last black-type on the Randwick Guineas Day program this Saturday, the Wenona Girl Handicap 2012 to run as Royal Randwick Race 7 at 5:00pm (NSW time).


Dystopia will seek her third win on the trot in Saturday's 2012 Wenona Girl Handicap

Of the quality mares engaged one of the likely favourites to open top of the markets at bookmaker.com.au for the $100,000 Listed Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) is the Chris Waller-trained Dystopia.

Drawn on the rails in barrier one with Hugh Bowman to ride, Redoute’s Choice five-year-old Dystopia is out for her third win on the trot this summer.

After an easy two and a half length victory over Tiger Tees at Warwick Farm over 1300 metres on Janaury 7 Dystopia was last seen hanging on in a tight finish to win the Listed Triscay Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on February 25.

Triscay Stakes runner-up Alberton Park from the stables of John O’Shea has also been accepted to back up in the Wenona Girl Handicap 2012.

Prior to their second in the Triscay Thorn Park five-year-old Alberton Park finished a close fourth to Steps In Time in the Group 2 NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Classic (1200m), and Saturday will be their fourth start for their new trainer having previously been prepared in Brisbane by Liam Birchley.

While Dystopia is the sole last-start winner in this year’s Wenona Girl Handicap other hopes coming up some eye-catching runs include Gerald Ryan’s Triscay four placegetter Rosie’s Reward who has also drawn nicely in gate three, the Joe Pride-trained Phenomenal Lass with work to do from barrier 16 and John Thompson’s Encosta De Lago four-year-old Potions who will be ridden by Craig Williams.

Other highly-rated mares in the mix include Les Bridge’s 59kg topweight Jersey Lily in barrier two out to improve on her first-up sixth in the Millie Fox, the Peter Moody-trained Curtana (barrier six), Guy Walter’s resuming Myer Classic fourth placegetter Skyerush (barrier four) and the Anthony Cummings-trained Fastnet Rock mare Gybe (barrier seven).
