The first race of Underwood Stakes Day 2012 is due to jump at 12pm AEST today at Caulfield Racecourse.
Despite the perfect conditions and Dead 4-rated track, there have been a large number of scratchings throughout the day.
While there have been no scratchings in the major race of the day, the 2012 Underwood Stakes, the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes and Group 3 How Now Stakes has both experienced withdrawals.
Both emergencies have been scratched from the 2012 Naturalism Stakes field, with Fruehling and Pacino missing out on a chance at ballot exemption for the 2012 Caulfield Cup.
In the 2012 How Now Stakes, which is this year named the Sportingbet Sprint, there are a total of six scratchings from the $150,000 race.
Included in the race withdrawals is Curtana, who was due to have her first spring start in the 2012 How Now Stakes and was well-backed in the betting.
