South Australian Derby Day 2012 – Morphetville Scratchings 5/5/12

Hosting the only Group 1 race across the country today is Adelaide’s Morphetville Racecourse, with the 2012 South Australian Derby highlighting a quality eight-race card.

Good news for racing fans is the track has been rated dead (4) so there have been limited scratchings across the entire meeting.

Just two horses, Practiced and Banner, have been scratched from the days feature race but two emergencies come in so it will still be a full field of 16 horses in the $500,000 event for three-year-olds.
