Testa Rossa Stakes 2012 – Final Field Released

The final field has been announced for the Listed 2012 Testa Rossa Stakes (1200m) which will take place as part of the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes day card at Caulfield on Sunday.

A full allotment of 16 horses plus four emergencies have been included for the $120,000 sprint in what appears to be a fairly open affair.

Sea Lord

Sea Lord is the only last start winner in the 2012 Testa Rossa Stakes field

Amah Rock is one horse from the field who is likely to go on to bigger things this spring and will be ridden by Glen Boss from barrier nine this weekend.

The four-year-old boasts form behind emerging Darley star Mental at the Brisbane winter carnival and kicked off his spring campaign with a photo-finish defeat to Sea Lord in the Macleod Stakes two weeks ago.

Amah Rock will get the chance to get one back on Sea Lord this Sunday with the Stephen Brown-trained gelding chasing a third consecutive win this weekend.

Sea Lord is the only last-start winner in the field but there are still a number of in-form horses including talented David Vandyke-trained mare Miss Marx.

The five-year-old ran second to Emotional Circus first up at Rosehill before finishing runner-up to star mare More Joyous in the Sheraco Stakes.

Peter Moody has accepted with Curtana who will be having her first start of the spring and was last seen winning the Straight Six at Flemington in May. But the five-year-old faces a tough first-up ask after drawing barrier 16.

Other horses set to contest the Testa Rossa Stakes include Darren Weir-trained pair Rue Maple and Royal Bender and Gerald Ryan-trained gelding Ahdashim.
