Bel Sprinter Headlines 2012 McEwen Stakes Nominations

Bel Sprinter is one of 12 horses to be nominated for the Group 3 McEwen Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Saturday September 15, 2012.

The Bel Esprit gelding will be having his spring debut in the 2012 McEwen Stakes after a winter-long spell following his autumn racing carnival.

Bel Sprinter had four race starts during his autumn campaign, with his best result being a win in the Listed WJ Adams Stakes at Caulfield in February.

While the now five-year-old failed to win any of the remainder of his three runs that preparation, he placed a close fourth in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes.

Bel Sprinter

Bel Sprinter is one of 12 nominations for the 2012 McEwen Stakes.

Bel Sprinter has won five of his nine race starts and has earned more than $270,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Didntcostalot is also included in the 2012 McEwen Stakes.

The four-year-old won his first-up race start in a $35,000 Handicap at Sandown on August 22, and is expected to be fit and ready for his 2012 McEwen Stakes run.

Didntcostalot was purchased for just $3,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale and has gone on to win four of his 10 race starts and accrue more than $100,000 in prize earnings.

The 2012 McEwen Stakes field will also be graced with Soft Sand, who will be looking to start her spring carnival on a high in the race.

The Dansili mare was one of the top hopes for the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm in June, however, she finished 15th in the 18 horse field.

The four-year-old has won four of her eight race starts and has earned more than $200,000 in prize money.
