Raceway Leads 2012 Skyline Stakes Field

Highly promising Gai Waterhouse trained Raceway is the headline act in the Group 3 2012 Skyline Stakes which will take place as part of Randwick Guineas Day at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday.

The bookmaker.com.au Golden Slipper fourth favourite is unbeaten from two starts and looks the most likely to take top honours in the $125,000 sprint (1200m).

The leading online bookmaker currently have Raceway listed at $7.50 for the prized Golden Slipper event and the only thing seemingly in his way this weekend is the fact he has drawn the outside barrier (12).


Golden Slipper Chance Raceway Heads the Skyline Stakes Nominations

With Hugh Bowman in the saddle, he finished first in the Canonbury Stakes at Warwick Farm on February 18 which followed a four length victory in his debut start in early January.

John O’Shea trained Shelford finished second to Raceway in the Canonbury Stakes and the two horses will again go head to head in the Skyline Stakes.

They will come from opposite ends of the starting line with colt Shelford to be ridden by Nash Rawiller out of barrier two.

Another John O’Shea trained horse is also coming off a debut second-place finish with More Than Ready colt Ashokan named to run this weekend.

Leading Sydney trainer Peter Snowden will also have two horses running in the Skyline with colts Limes and Lyric.

They are both having their first runs following spells and both recorded runner up efforts in their last and only starts.

Other horses named in the final field for Saturday’s 2012 Skyline Stakes include Lord Duveen and Strength.

The odds for all the 2012 Randwick Guineas Day action will be released later this week and the best odds can be found with bookmaker.com.au.
