Nine Horse 2013 CF Orr Stakes Field Released

Nine talented gallopers have been accepted to face off in the Melbourne Festival of Racing’s first Group 1 race, the CF Orr Stakes 2013 to light up Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday, with race favourite All Too Hard having been allocated the far outside barrier.

All Too Hard

All Too Hard has drawn barrier 9 of 9 for the 2013 CF Orr Stakes this Saturday

The headline acceptor for this year’s $400,000 Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) is crack Caulfield Guineas winning colt All Too Hard racing for their first time since their brave second behind weight-for-age hero Ocean Park in last spring’s Cox Plate.

Prepared by Hall of Fame trainer John Hawkes along with his sons Michael and Wayne, the Casino Prince three-year-old may be famous by association being a half-brother of Black Caviar but they have also carved out their own place in Australian racing history which they will look to continue first-up on Saturday.

They have suffered an early blow for their much-awaited autumn return however with Dwayne Dunn to ride them from barrier nine of nine.

It is an incredible line-up of Group 1 winning stars in the CF Orr Stakes field this weekend with the top-rated runner being the now Bruce Wallace-trained Kiwi King Mufhasa.

Boasting an impressive 10 Group 1 victories, two of which were achieved in Australia, the veteran Pentire eight-year-old races for the first time since their Group 3 Manawatu Challenge Stakes win back home in late December.

King Mufhasa has drawn the inside alley and will reunite with the jockey who guided them to their first Group 1 win in Australia (the 2011 Toorak Handicap), Michael Rodd.

Their other elite level triumph down under was in last year’s Futurity Stakes, run at Caulfield, and their jockey there Nash Rawiller is currently out with injury.

Another raider in the mix this CF Orr Stakes Day all the way from WA is then the Adam Durrant-trained Mr Moet who has come up trumps with the ideal barrier three draw.

A star back home in Perth the Mosayter five-year-old earned their first interstate assignment after a stellar spring – summer season which kicked off with a win over Luckygray in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

They also ran second in both the Kingston Town Classic and the Perth Cup with a Group 2 CB Cox Stakes victory sandwiched in between booking themselves an Australian Cup 2013 bid which starts on Saturday in the CF Orr.

“He’s come a long, long way that’s for sure,” Durrant, 29, said.

“He showed nothing in his first six race starts. In fact after his first three trips to the races I thought he was just no good.

“But suddenly in June things clicked and he just went from battling to better to very good, and now we are in Melbourne having a crack at major races like the Australian Cup.”

Other Group 1 winners in the mix are then 2010 Emirates Stakes champ Wall Street and Anthony Freedman’s resuming Doomben Cup victor Mawingo.

There is also sure to be plenty of money on the Mick Price-trained Callanish (barrier five) who makes their Group 1 debut here looking to retain their undefeated status.

The Fastnet Rock four-year-old has saluted in all eight of their runs so far most recently winning the Listed Seymour Cup (1600m) on October last year.

The talent runs deep with other notable chances including the Peter Snowden-trained seven-year-old Pinwheel whose father Lonhro won this race back in 2004, and the in-form John Dillon Stakes winner from Australia Day Le Remas after their third win on the trot.
