Caulfield Guineas Day 2012 Fields & Race Program

With the major races in Sydney done and dusted for another spring the focus is now well and truly on Victoria where the big guns are turning out in force for this Saturday’s 2012 Caulfield Guineas Day, the official race fields and times for which are detailed below.

A bumper nine-race program is scheduled for Caulfield Racecourse this Caulfield Guineas Day, seven of those events holding black type status.

The day is headlined by a triple shot of Group 1 action the first of the elite levels running as Race 5 at 2:50pm with a diminutive but classy field of eight gallopers including Cox Plate-bound stars Ocean Park and Manighar to face off in the $400,000 Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m).

Group 1 racing continues with Race 6 – the $400,000 Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) where the race’s past two champions in More Joyous (2010) and King Mufhasa (2011) will fight it out for boasting rights again.

Finally the meeting’s marquee event will jump at 4:10pm with the $1 million Caulfield Guineas (1600m) for three-year-olds, the eight-horse race to be dominated by Gai Waterhouse’s unbeaten colt Pierro who is warming up for the 2012 Cox Plate on October 27.

Another feature on the program also worth an eye on is the $220,000 Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) which offers a ballot free ride into Saturday week’s Caulfield Cup 2012 to the winner as does the Caulfield Stakes and Toorak Handicap.

Earlier in the day punters are also in for a treat in race two when the inaugural edition of the $250,000 Blue Sapphire (1200m) takes place, the race being spruiked as a two horse affair between Snitzel colt Sizzling – winner of the Group 1 TJ Smith, and Snitzel filly Snitzerland – undefeated from three this time in.

See below for the full Caulfield Guineas Day race fields, barriers and times so you don’t miss a minute of the action.
