Belle Of The Turf Stakes 2013 – Final Field and Barrier Draw

The final field and barrier draw has been announced for the Listed $100,000 2013 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) which will take place as part of a bumper Gosford card on Thursday.

Irish Dream

Irish Dream will carry the topweight of 59kg in the Belle Of The Turf Stakes

The fillies and mares’ event is one of three stakes races on the program that is highlighted by the 2013 Gosford Gold Cup.

Set to carry the topweight is Ron Quinton-trained mare Irish Dream who will have to be at the top of her game when she carries 59kg from barrier 14.

A full field of 14 horses will contest what appears set to be a highly competitive affair.

There are plenty of last-start winners in the field including John Sargent’s Cathay Lady who will be chasing a fourth straight win.

The former New Zealand mare has not missed a place in her 10 most recent starts and handled the step up from midweek to Saturday racing on December 29 to claim a BM85 event at Canterbury.

Set to start amongst the favourites is Chris Waller’s in-form mare Pipette who will be out to record a third consecutive win and build on a three-length romp of her rivals in the Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap at Rosehill on New Year’s Day.

Another chasing her third victory in a row is Darley-owned mare Babel who secured wins at Warwick Farm in Saturday company in December.

She is joined in the field by stablemate Classics who has won five of 13 starts and will appreciate the drop back in class after running seventh in the Villiers Stakes.

Also included in the Belle Of The Turf Stakes field are David Hayes’ last-start winner Mabsam and the David Pfieffer’s consistent mare Triple Six.
