2012 Festival of Perth Racing Stars Arrive

A strong contingent of interstate raiders are due to touch down in Perth this afternoon ahead of Ascot’s Super Saturday of Racing next weekend with two Group 1 clashes to take centre stage for the Festival of Perth Racing 2012 on November 24.

Fat Al

Fat Al is the best fancied of the interstate raiders for the 2012 Railway Stakes in Perth

Western Australia’s biggest thoroughbred event, the Perth Summer Racing Carnival always attracts an intriguing line up of both local and visiting gallopers with this year no exception.

A charter flight from Melbourne carrying a number of the big name interstate horses will arrive at midday today including the Gai Waterhouse-trained Epsom Handicap winner Fat Al coming off a failed run in the Emirates and Patinack Farm Classic third place-getter Hallowell Belle who will run in the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and the $500,000 Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) Saturday week respectively.

Four-time Group 1 winner Wall Street from the Flemington stables of Mike Moroney is also on way to Perth for the 2012 Railway Stakes as is Stuart Webb’s class mare Yosei.

Montjeu eight-year-old Wall Street, last seen finishing less than two lengths away fifth to Happy Trails in the Emirates Stakes over the Flemington mile, will be ridden by last Saturday’s Patinack Farm Classic winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy for the first time in the Railway.

McEvoy, who is the No. 1 rider for Darley, was able to pick up the Railway ride on Wall Street after Darley opted not to send Galah west with the horse unlikely to gain a run in the million dollar classic.

While over in Perth McEvoy will also partner with Peter Snowden-trained Lonhro seven-year-old Pinwheel in the 2012 Winterbottom Stakes and their exciting three-year-old stablemate Academus in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) – both horses also booked on today’s flight.

McEvoy was first past the post in last year’s Railway Stakes with Kiwi galloper He’s Remarkable but lost on protest to Luckygray, receiving a subsequent 28 day careless riding suspension for the ride.

Luckygray, winner of the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes first-up at Ascot last Saturday, is the narrow $4.20 favourite in the pre-post Railway Stakes odds online just ahead of local Show A Heart colt Luke’s Luck ($4.60) who ran third in the Lee Steere and the Grant Williams-trained Ranger ($5).

The best of the interstate hopes meanwhile are the aforementioned Fat Al and Yosei on $13, Wall Street following closely at a quote of $14.

Meanwhile from the Brisbane stables of Tony Gollan progressive sprinter Spirit Of Boom will head over for the Winterbottom Stakes 2012 after a seventh in the Patinack Farm Classic on Emirates Stakes Day – all of the Winterbottom hopes likely running for second behind the unbeaten favourite Barakey who has 10 wins from as many career starts so far.

Super Saturday won’t just be about the star horses but the ace jockeys that are also heading over with the likes of Glen Boss, Nash Rawiller, Michael Rodd and Corey Brown joining McEvoy.

The other big Festival of Perth Racing news meanwhile is the early withdrawal of the Lloyd Williams-owned Fawkner from the Railway, the devastatingly close Emirates Stakes runner-up formerly installed on the second line of Railway Stakes betting.

As with the spring the hottest horse racing odds this summer racing season won’t be found at the land-based bookies but online at bookmaker.com.au – home of the famous $400 bonus welcome bet offer!
