The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 Carlyon Stakes, revealing a full field of 13 runners plus two emergencies for the race.
The Listed Carlyon Stakes is due to run at Moonee Valley racecourse this Saturday August 25, 2012, and here you will find best final field information.
Atomic Force will be having his first race of the spring racing carnival in the 2012 Carlyon Stakes.
The Danehill Dancer gelding is fancied as one of the best chances for Group 1 glory this spring, after his recent international success.
Atomic Force won the Group 1 Railway Stakes at Ellerslie Racecourse in New Zealand on January 1, 2012, before finishing a close second to Guiseppina in the Group 1 Telegraph Handicap last start.
The seven-year-old gelding has won 11 of his 37 race starts and has earned more than $745,000 in prize money.
Atomic Force has drawn barrier seven for the 2012 Carlyon Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Craig Williams in the race.
Trainer Darren Smith admits the gelding is at full fitness for Saturday’s race, however, is still hopeful he can come through with the win.
“There’s still some improvement there,” Smith said.
“I’d say he’s 80 per cent fit and I’m hoping that will be enough for Saturday’s race.”
African Pulse is also part of the 2012 Carlyon Stakes final field and barrier draw after a last start win.
The Johannesburg entire won the $80,000 J Colwell & B Singh Handicap at Flemington last start and is at the top of his game going into the 2012 Carlyon Stakes.
African Pulse has won four of his nine race starts and has earned close to $200,000 in prize money.
The four-year-old will jump from barrier 13 in the 2012 Carlyon Stakes after the emergencies are scratched from the field.
He will carry 56 kilograms and will be ridden by jockey Michael Walker.
Veewap, Unanimously and All Friared Up are also part of the 2012 Carlyon Stakes final field and barrier draw.
