Darby Munro Stakes 2012 – Final Field and Barrier Draw

A quality field of 15 horses has been named to contest the 2012 Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens this Saturday.

The $100,000 race stands as a key support event on a nine-race Rosehill card that is highlighted by the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas.

African Pulse

African Pulse will run in the 2012 Darby Munro Stakes

Included in the 15 horse field is Michael Moroney trained colt African Pulse who will have his work cut out after receiving a barrier 13 draw for the Listed event.

The three-year-old should appreciate a drop back in class after finishing mid-field in the high-class Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket Handicap.

Gai Waterhouse trained horse Hallowell Belle will be looking to continue her promising 2012 form after recording two consecutive third-place efforts in the Light Fingers Stakes and Surround Stakes.

Questions remain over whether the Starcraft filly is a winning horse as she has recorded nine placings but just one win from 11 outings.

Chris Waller trained gelding Sacred Pins gets a chance against higher quality opposition after going unbeaten in three starts so far.

He has drawn a favourable barrier (5) for Saturday and will also be aided by highly successful Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman.

Another unbeaten New Zealand horse in the field is the Noel Mayfield-Smith trained Famous Seamus.

The gelding has also had three wins from three starts against lesser opposition and will be ridden by Robyn Freeman-Key from the inside barrier on Saturday.

Three Peter Snowden trained horses will run in the 2012 Darby Munro Stakes with Altar, Aerobatics and Disputes.

Aerobatics will be looking to build on a promsing start to 2012 which included a third-place finish in the Eskimo Prince last start while Altar has signalled potential with two fourth-placings from two starts this year.
