Lamasery Confirmed for Return in 2012 Warwick Stakes

After missing the autumn with injury, talented gelding Lamasery will make a long awaited return at Warwick Farm on Saturday in the Group 2 2012 Warwick Stakes (1400m).


Lamasery is set to return in the Warwick Stakes

An arthritic condition was discovered in the David Vandyke-trained six-year-old following his spring campaign last year which has caused the Warwick Farm trainer to nurse him back to the track.

A son of Commands, Lamasery has shown over the past month that he is ready to return to racing as he has trialled three times for two winning performances.

After seeing him perform strongly during trackwork this morning, Vandyke all but confirmed he would be a starter in Saturday’s Warwick Farm feature.

“I’m pretty confident we’ll be going around Saturday,” Vandyke said.

“His work this morning was terrific.”

The Warwick Farm-based trainer has taken a patient approach with his stable star and is confident he will produce a solid performance first-up.

“He’s been in work now for probably seven months. We’ve taken a long time to get him ready,” Vandyke said.

“He has had the benefit of two trials. He trialled against Centennial Park and ran in front of him.

“I think he’ll really be getting to the line strong.”

Prior to the bout of arthritis, Lamasery produced some impressive results from six spring starts.

He won the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes and the Colin Stephen and finished third in the Group 1 Metropolitan before winning the Listed Johnnie Walker Stakes.

It will be no soft return for Lamasery this weekend, with a quality list of nominations for the Warwick Stakes announced yesterday.

Included are Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight, Peter Moody-trained Lights Of Heaven and 2011 Epsom Handicap winner Secret Admirer.
