Sweet Embrace Stakes 2012 – Can Bethlehem Cause Upset?

Pat and Wayne Webster trained filly Bethlehem has barely been tried at the track but the two-year-old’s training team are confident she can give the top horses a run on the back of raw talent in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.

The More Than Ready filly has only had one start, which resulted in a fourth place finish at Canterbury, but the trainers saw enough to throw her into the deep end against some quality opposition in the Group 3 race on Saturday.

Wayne Webster said that the unknown quality has shown enough promise to warrant a step up in both class and distance on Saturday in the $125,000 sprint (1200m).

“Her first-up run was encouraging. Brad Pengelly rode her and he was impressed by the way she hit the line,” he said.

Webster said Pengelly suggested after her debut that given a better gate draw or slight increase in distance, the filly would have been a good chance of taking victory.

He said there was little doubt the young horse still needed more preparation physically and mentally but was looking forward to seeing how she fared in the step up.

“She’s shown us enough to be there on Saturday.”

“If you’re ever going to throw them in the deep end you do it when they’re two. Anything can happen.”

To take top honours in the key Randwick Guineas support race Bethlehem will have to beat some quality two-year-old fillies including race-favourite and Golden Slipper fancy Kuchinskaya.

She will also have to topple Chris Waller trained Jade Marauder and last start winner Dear Demi.

Bethlehem is currently a $26.00 outsider in the Eskimo Stakes market while favourite Kuchinskaya is paying $3.50.

A huge day of racing is set to take place at Royal Randwick Racecourse this weekend, with the main drawcard the Randwick Guineas.
