Luckygray Draws Wide – 2012 Memsie Stakes Field

Perth galloper Luckygray will have to overcome a wide draw if he is to taste victory in his second Melbourne start this Saturday in the Group 2 2012 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Rekindled Interest

Rekindled Interest will take on Luckygray in Saturday's Memsie Stakes

The Western Australian Group 1 winner arrived in the Victorian capital with plenty of hype ahead of his PB Lawrence Stakes start and performed solidly on a heavy track to run home in fourth position.

But it will get no easier in his second time at the track as the five-year-old has drawn barrier 12 in a quality 15-horse field.

Among his top rivals in the $220,000 feature is 2011 Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest who will kick off his spring campaign this weekend.

The Jim Conlan-trained gelding has drawn far better in barrier three and will be ridden for the first time by Steven Arnold.

Also having their first race of the preparation is Caulfield Cup favourite Green Moon who finished runner-up in the prestigious staying event last year.

The talented import had just one start in the autumn when he won the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) ahead of Pied A Terre at Flemington.

While a number of horses are kicking off their campaigns this weekend, two Memsie Stakes runners have already shown form.

Second Effort won the PB Lawrence Stakes while Happy Trails took out Group 3 Spring Stakes at Morphetville on August 11.

Also set to contest the Memsie Stakes are Sydney Cup winner Niwot, veteran gelding Wall Street and Peter Moody-trained import Voila Ici.
