Doomben BTC Cup Day 2012 Field & Program

This Saturday Doomben Racecourse will come to life with the first official Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival meeting taking place for 2012 BTC Cup Day.

Buffering

Buffering is the headline act on 2012 BTC Cup Day at Doomben on Saturday

Race fans and punters are in for a treat with a crack eight-race program scheduled, the action headlined by a triple shot of Group racing.

Of course the big one everyone will be waiting for is the elite level, the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) running as Race 7 at 3:50pm.

The 15 gallopers engaged in the 2012 BTC Cup field are led by Rob Heathcote’s awkwardly drawn champ Buffering (barrier 14).

His main dangers look to be reigning Doomben 10,000 winner Beaded, Tony Gollan’s The Galaxy winner Temple Of Boom, the Joe Pride-trained Neeson and Stradbroke Handicap-bound filly Sea Siren.

The first of the Group events takes place at 2:30pm with the likes of Auckland Cup third placegetter Six O’Clock News and local six-year-old Marked facing off in Race 5 – the $115,000 Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2000m).

The Chairman’s is followed by the final BTC Cup lead-up, the $125,000 Group 3 Mittys Rough Habit Plate (2000m) for the three-year-olds at 3:05pm, an incredible six last start winners engaged in the 16-horse field including Gynsynd Classic victor Trump.

There is also a Listed feature to warm things up with the two-year-olds facing off in Race 3 at 1:20pm – the $100,000 Listed Hampden Stakes (1200m).

So while Black Caviar is away the horses in Brisbane can play!

Whether it is Black Caviar in the 2012 The Goodwood over in Adelaide, or one of the top BTC Cup Day chances in Queensland you fancy a punt on this weekend, bookmaker.com.au have you covered.
