Danleigh Needs Wet Track in 2012 Warwick Stakes

A wet track would give multiple Group 1 winner Danleigh the best chance of returning to the winner’s circle when the experienced gelding lines up in the Group 2 2012 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm.

The nine-year-old has secured four victories at Group 1 level in an impressive career and three of those have come on wet surfaces.

While the son of Mujahid has won on dry ground before, trainer Chris Waller is hoping the rain predicted for later this week in Sydney falls as expected.

I would like to see the rain come for him to be able to show his best,” Waller said.

Danleigh has not crossed the line in front since the 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes but showed signs during the autumn that he can still compete with the best when third in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes and runner-up in the Chipping Norton.

The Sydney-based gelding has won nine of 53 starts and placed on another 16 occasions, collecting more than $2.3 million in prize money.

Apart from the Chipping Norton Stakes win he has tasted top tier success in the 2010 George Ryder Stakes and both the All Aged Stakes and Manikato Stakes in 2009.

But Danleigh has no easy task first-up with a number of quality horses nominated for the Warwick Farm feature.

Included are Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven who had a highly impressive Brisbane winter campaign, last-start winner Pinwheel, Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight and last  year’s Epsom winner Secret Admirer.

The race takes place as one of five stakes races at Warwick Farm this Saturday with other card highlights being the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes and the Group 3 Up and Coming Stakes.
