While most of today’s focus will be on Flemington for the return of Black Caviar, there is still plenty of action going on in Sydney for 2013 Royal Sovereign Stakes Day at Rosehill.
A bumper card featuring three Group 2 races will take place including the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes for three-year-old colts and geldings.
Many will be interested to see how unbeaten former New Zealand colt Sacred Falls fares in his first Australian start and he takes on the likes of Rebel Dane, Ashokan and Urquidez.
Another exciting event is the 2013 Light Fingers Stakes which sees Crown Oaks winner Dear Demi return to take on a strong list of three-year-old fillies including Driefontein,
The other major race on the program is the Group 2 2013 Thoroughbred Breeders Classic (1200m) which sees a small but classy field of mares step out including Pear Tart, Red Tracer, Ladys Angel and Steps In Time.
An overcast day in Sydney but the track is still a dead 5 which should ensure excellent conditions for racing.
