Pinwheel Prepared for Winterbottom Stakes 2012

Final acceptances for Saturday’s 2012 Winterbottom Stakes were taken by Perth Racing today with 10 sprinters paid up for in the Ascot feature three of which are interstate raiders including the Peter Snowden-trained Sydneysider Pinwheel.

Pinwheel

Pinwheel is one of three interstate raiders running in Perth's Winterbottom Stakes 2012 on Saturday

The Lonhro seven-year-old enjoyed back-to-back Group wins in Sydney back in August taking out the Missile Stakes – Warwick Stakes double before they finished a distant seventh to Moment Of Change last time out in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 30.

On Saturday they resume racing making their Perth debut in the $500,000 Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) with regular rider Kerrin McEvoy travelling over for the ride.

Pinwheel will round out his Winterbottom Stakes preparations with a Tuesday hit-out before attempting to break his Group 1 duck in his seventh attempt at elite level.

“He’s a fresh horse, I’ve done these types of preparations with Pinwheel before and that’s when he races at his best,” Snowden said.

“He had a soft trial at Rosehill which I was happy with and he’s going really well.”

The other interstate-trained horses looking for an upset win in the Winterbottom Stakes field this year are then Tony Gollan’s always-honest Queensland galloper Spirit Of Boom to be ridden by Nash Rawiller and the Gai Waterhouse-trained mare Hallowell Belle coming off a third in the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m).

Of course all the other Winterbottom hopefuls could be running for second with Jim Taylor’s undefeated local champion Barakey to jump the short-priced favourite as they look for their 11th consecutive career success.

Taylor certainly knows what it takes to train a sprint star having prepared subsequent triple Group 1 winner Hay List for their opening nine career starts which included eight straight wins before they pulled up lame after finishing sixth in the 2009 Colonel Reeves Stakes.

The Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes is the same race Key Business five-year-old Barakey won this November by an easy four lengths and Taylor believes they are racing better than Hay List was at the same stage of his career back in the day.

“At this stage in their careers, he is slightly better than Hay List, but Hay List was always going to be a better horse once he got onto softer tracks,” Taylor said.

“If he was to win this week and make it 11 straight, there wouldn’t be anything left for him in Perth and we’d head over to Melbourne in the autumn.”
