San Domenico Stakes 2013 Field Released

This Saturday Sydney’s Rosehill Racecourse will host one of the first three-year-old spring carnival lead-ups with a field of smart youngsters engaged to face off in the 2013 San Domenico Stakes.

Set to run as Race 6 at 3:40pm (AEST) this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Smithfield RSL Club San Domenico Stakes (1100m) is shaping up as a cracker as it hosts the race return of the Peter Snowden-trained Sidestep.

Topping the San Domenico Stakes weights with 58.5kg the gun Exceed And Excel colt will be ridden by Tommy Berry as they race for the first time since their brave second to Overreach in the Golden Slipper back in April.

Before that they were the easy winner of the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill, and they go into the San Domenico on the back of a distant second in an 800m Randwick hitout from the start of the month.

Snowden has also accepted for another son of Exceed And Excel in Kuroshio who is the second heaviest weighted hope in the race with 58kg.

While Sidestep is drawn in gate six Kuroshio has the run of the race from the inside alley with Christian Reith to ride.

They too are first-up on the weekend last seen running a disappointing 14th in the Golden Slipper after showing earlier promise with two Melbourne black type wins from their opening six starts including the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) at Caulfield in February.

The next best rated runner is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Whittington who will jump from gate three with Nash Rawiller aboard.

The Tale Of The Cat colt is another looking to atone after a failed Golden Slipper run when 13th in the world’s richest two-year-olds’ race.

Whittington however has been on fire in their lead-up work to this with two good trails over 1050m at Randwick.

Joining Whittington on 57.5kg is then Anthony Cummings’ Canonbury Stakes winner Never Can Tell in gate five, and the lightly-raced Bruce Wallace-trained Kiwi raider Fast Dragon last seen winning the Listed Champagne Stakes over the Ellerslie mile back home in mid-April.

Cummings meanwhile will also be represented by Cluster racing for just the second time after a sixth on debut at Canterbury.

Rounding out the San Domenico Stakes field are then Tony Gollan’s consistent Whiskey Allround (gate two), Jason Coyle’s widely-drawn Va Pensiero (gate nine) and the Bjorn Baker-trained Windjammer.

Windjammer is the only horse in the race who has had a start this season after the Bernardini colt beat home a smart field carrying 59kg at Rosehill over 1100m on August 3.

They drop back to 56kg on Saturday.
