2012 Phar Lap Stakes Stop for Rekindled Alliance

Wet weather in Sydney last weekend has forced Rekindled Alliance trainer Paul Messara to readjust the Autumn program for the promising colt after he was withdrawn from the Randwick Guineas.

The 2012 Phar Lap Stakes will run this Saturday at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens and will allow the son of Redoute’s Choice to get his Autumn program back on track ahead of the Australian derby on April 14.

Messara withdrew the three-year-old from the Randwick Guineas after witnessing a sixth-place finish in the Hobartville Stakes in wet conditions.

Following this weekend, the next stop on the road to the Australian Derby will be the Rosehill Guineas or the Tullouch Stakes.

“He’ll run in the Phar Lap and could back up in the Rosehill Guineas the following week,” Messara said.

“If he doesn’t go to the Guineas he will go to the Tulloch.”

To claim top honours in Saturday’s Group 2 $175,000 event he will have to beat some quality horses including Group 1 winner Benfica and Australian Guineas runner Fontelina.

On the up and coming colt’s side is experienced jockey Corey Brown who has ridden him in all of his six starts to date.

Brown said he was excited about riding him on Saturday but admitted he had concerns about the weather.

“I love the horse,” he said.

“I just hope it isn’t too wet. He just can’t accelerate on it the same way he does on top of the ground.”

The 2012 Phar Lap Stakes will take place as part of a sensational day of racing at Rosehill this Saturday.

The main highlights on the nine-race card are the Group 1 Coolmore Classic and Ranvet Stakes as well as four Group 2 races including a quality packed Canterbury Stakes.
