Rosehill Guineas Day Race 9 – 2012 Birthday Card Stakes Final Field

A massive nine-race Rosehill Guineas Day program will come to a close this Saturday with the Birthday Card Stakes 2012, the final field and barriers for which have now been released.

Satin Shoes

Satin Shoes could miss the the Birthday Card Stakes 2012 in favour of the Challenge Stakes on Saturday

Due to jump at 5:30pm (NSW time) as Rosehill Race 9, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Ascend Sales Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) has lost its draw card entry with reigning Myer Classic winner Hurtle Myrtle not accepted for.

Coming up trumps with the inside alley of the 14-horse Birthday Card Stakes field was the Clarry Conners-trained Flying Spur filly Satin Shoes.

Heading towards a run in the $350,000 Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick on April 21, Group 1 placed Satin Shoes could still miss the Birthday Card Stakes in favour of a run in the $175,000 Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

If she goes to the Challenge Stakes Satin Shoes would jump from barrier five in a small seven-horse field featuring crack sprinting talent Rain Affair and Bel Sprinter.

Other fillies and mares drawn nicely for the Birthday Card Stakes on Saturday include the Kris Lees’ Mossman four-year-old Next The Universe (2), the Joe Pride-trained Phenomenal Lass (4) and the Peter Snowden-trained Divorces (5) last seen running third on Melbourne Cup Day in her only spring start last year.

Along with the Group performing Divorces Snowden has also accepted for Commands five-year-old Kanzan (barrier 12) and Lonhro mare Celts (barrier seven).

Other notable Birthday Card Stakes hopefuls include the resuming Graceful Anna, Pride’s other runner Ladys Angel coming off a distant 11th in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) last Saturday and Anthony Cummings’ Fastnet Rock mare Gybe who resumed with a close first-up fourth in the Listed Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) at Randwick a fortnight ago.
