Chairman’s Stakes 2013 Field Released

This Saturday a 12 horse field of juveniles will come up against each other in the 2013 Chairman’s Stakes, a race that will feature two of the top fancies for this month’s $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Due to run as Caulfield Race 2 at 1:25pm the $120,000 Listed PFD Food Services Chairman’s Stakes (1100m) is one of four stakes races at the meeting and will be used by the bookies and punters as a guide to the upcoming Blue Diamond Stakes 2013 back at the track on February 23.

The shortest-priced of the Chairman’s Stakes hopefuls in the Blue Diamond Stakes odds is Robert Smerdon’s unraced Street Sense filly Politeness who makes her much awaited debut on the weekend.

Going into the race without an official trial the hype is already surrounding this young filly who occupies the third line of $10 before the 49 Blue Diamond Stakes third acceptors were announced today.

Politeness was followed in the Blue Diamond markets by another smart filly Metastasio, however they are yet to be entered for the million dollar feature with connections having until February 18 to pay the $55,000 second late entry to get them into the race.

Peter Snowden’s Nursery Plate winning Street Cry filly will still start one of the favouries in the Chairman’s however after her 2.5 length win on debut back on January 19.

Metastasio, the only previous winner in the race, has drawn mid-field barrier six for Saturday with Kerrin McEvoy retaining the ride.

There are then five other horses with former race experience including the David Hayes-trained duo of The Yowie coming off a third to Metastasio in the Nursery Plate and Flying Spur colt I Am Titanium.

Both are still on the Blue Diamond path with Hayes dominating the third declarations with 10 horses.

Also in the mix is Peter Moody’s Nursery Plate runner-up Kona Breeze.

Kona Breeze is a nicely bred daughter of Sebring from Red Ransom mare Whiffle who ran second on debut at Echuca at the start of last month before showing nice progression in their Flemington second last time out.
