Centennial Park 2013 in His Element for 2013 Expressway Stakes

David Payne-trained gelding Centennial Park will be in familiar surrounds on Saturday when he lines up in the Group 2 2013 Expressway Stakes (1200m).

Centennial Park

Centennial Park will be running in his fourth Expressway Stakes on Saturday

It will be the seven-year-old’s fourth consecutive appearance in the race and he has been a successful performer to date.

He was only beaten 1 1/2 lengths when fourth in his initial attempt in 2010 before winning in 2011 and running second to Rain Affair last year.

Payne describes the experienced galloper as a “happy horse” and sees no reason why he can’t continue his strong first-up form in the Warwick Farm feature.

Centennial Park is coming off an indifferent spring campaign but his best performance was his first when he finished runner-up to Pinwheel in the Group 3 Missile Stakes.

A winner of seven of 43 starts, the son of Thorn Park has been a serviceable performer, having collected over $850,000 in prizemoney.

Centennial Park is one of 11 horses nominated for the Expressway Stakes with the field set to include a number of Group 1 winners.

All Too Hard is by far the standout but the Caulfield Guineas winner is more likely to head to the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield.

Chris Waller has three strong Group 1-winning entrants including veterans Albert The Fat and Danleigh and former New Zealand colt Tougher Than Ever.

The son of General Nediym is a recent stable addition and will be having his first start in Australia if he lines up this weekend.

He won the Group 1 Diamond Stakes as a two-year-old and also placed in the Group 1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes.

At his most recent start in New Zealand in November he was third to Sacred Falls in the Group 1 2000 Guineas.
