ATC Inglis Sires Produce Stakes 2012 Field – Pierro & All Too Hard Scare Rivals

A diminutive but intriguing final field of just seven two-year-olds has been accepted for the 2012 ATC Inglis Sires Produce Stakes on Australian Derby Day at Randwick this Saturday, Golden Slipper winner Pierro and the also unbeaten All Too Hard to battle for favouritism.

All Too Hard

All Too Hard is likely to open the short-priced favourite for the 2012 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes on Saturday

Due to run as Randwick Race 5 at 2:16pm on Saturday the $500,000 Group 1 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) is one of three elite level features for the bookmaker.com.au punters to enjoy a big bet on this weekend.

To wear the No. 1 saddlecloth in the classic is Gai Waterhouse’s flying Lonhro colt Pierro who made the history books last Saturday handing his trainer a fourth win in the world’s richest juveniles race – the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

That was Pierro’s fourth win from as many starts, the young gun returning to Randwick on Saturday for the first time since their Listed Thoroughbred Breeders Plate win on debut last October.

Regular rider Nash Rawiller stays on Pierro for the Sires Produce, the duo drawn to perfection in barrier two.

One on their outside in gate three and likely to start the short-priced favourite in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au despite having skipped the Slipper is the Hawkes-trained All Too Hard.

Like Pierro Casino Prince colt All Too Hard, who is a half-brother to the world’s highest-rated mare Black Caviar, is unbeaten so far and was last seen winning the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 31.

Whether All Too Hard would have won the Golden Slipper had owner Nathan Tinkler decided to take them there will never be known, but they will get to test themselves against the heroic winner on Saturday.

The other main danger looming in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes field this year is Waterhouse’s second runner Raceway.

Coming up with the outside barrier with Hugh Bowman in the saddle, promising More Than Ready rig Raceway also comes via a Slipper run having crossed three and a half lengths away fifth behind their star stablemate in the lucrative feature.

Two other Inglis Sires Produce hopes are backing up on Saturday just seven days after racing in the Golden Slipper with the John O’Shea-trained duo Faustus and Ashokan who finished 11th and 12th respectively.

After drawing disastrously wide for the Slipper, Faustus in 13 and Skyline Stakes winner Ashokan in 14, the More Than Ready colts will appreciate Saturday’s smaller field and better barriers – five and four.

Jim Cassidy, who will also attempt his fourth win in the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) on Saturday this time with Victoria Derby winner Sangster ($101 @ bookmaker.com.au), retains the ride on Fautus having ridden them in all four of their starts to date.

Ashokan meanwhile was ridden by Cassidy for their opening two starts before New Zealand hoop James McDonald took over duties for the Slipper.

A jockey for Ashokan in the Sires Produce is still to be confirmed.

Rounding out the 2012 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes field and barriers are then the Peter Snowden-trained stablemates Tatra (barrier one), fourth behind All Too Hard in the Group 2 VRC Sires Produce Stakes last month, and Commands colt Limes (barrier six) who ran a good third in the Pago Pago last time out.

Betting on all of the Randwick races this weekend are due to open shortly at our preferred online bookmaker, bookmaker.com.au, shortly.
