Kindergarten Stakes 2012 Nominations Headed by Ichihara

Unbeaten filly Ichihara heads a small field of two-year-old horses nominated to contest the 2012 Kindergarten Stakes at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday.


Ichihara is the headline act nominated for the Kindergarten Stakes

Just seven juveniles were nominated for the $175,000 Group 3 event which stands as a support act to the day’s feature races including the TJ Smith Stakes and the Australian Derby.

On form alone, Ichihara looks the pick of the field after winning all three of her starts to date including Golden Slipper Qualifier the Magic Night Stakes.

Despite gaining exemption from the ballot draw, the filly’s owners elected not to enter her in last weekend’s prestigious two-year-old race.

The Allan Denham-trained horse signalled plenty of potential when winning on debut in Wyong in early March before coming to Sydney and beating Narcissus in the Schweppes Plate and winning the Magic Night Stakes ahead of a host of Slipper contenders.

The horse that looks most likely to challenge Ichihara for top honours in the Kindergarten Stakes is Agueda who is the most experienced of all those nominated.

The Anthony Cummings-trained filly has shown promise in her young career, winning once and placing another three times from five outings.

She finished second to Magic Millions winner Driefontein in the Tom Cassar Widden Stakes and ran fourth in the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes to Jade Marauder.

Two horses will make their debut in the Kindergarten Stakes on Saturday and they are Paul Cave-trained filly Oh Barbie and Peter Snowden’s Sessions.

The Kindergarten Stakes is one of two juvenile races on the Randwick card this weekend with the other being the Group 1 ATC Sires Produce Stakes that will see superstar colt All Too Hard take on Golden Slipper winner Pierro over 1400 metres.

Betting on all the Randwick action will open later in the week at who offer the best odds on all the nation’s racing action.
