Canterbury Stakes Nominations 2014

This Saturday, March 15, the action of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival moves to Royal Randwick with a double shot of Group 1 racing including the 2014 Canterbury Stakes.

The second biggest race of Randwick Guineas Day, this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) has drawn 10 nominations led by a Chris Waller-trained quartet.

Heading the early entries is his returning Northern Meteor colt Zoustar.

The exciting three-year-old was last seen scoring their third win on the trot when they became a dual Group 1 hero in the Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington in November.

Their spring also saw them take out the Golden Rose Stakes in Sydney, Zoustar set for a winning first-up effort here to add a third Group 1 trophy to the cabinet.

They’re set for a super autumn too with Zoustar dominating the early markets at $3.60 through for the $2.5 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) back at Randwick on April 12.

Fresh off scoring his fourth consecutive Chipping Norton Stakes trophy with the win by Queen Elizabeth Stakes-bound Boban last weekend, Waller is back looking to keep the magic going this Saturday with three other runners also in the mix.

Six-year-old Dane Shadow mare Red Tracer is coming off a first-up win for him here while the Canterbury Stakes field could also see the return of his stable mates My Kingdom Of Fife and Sacred Falls.

Myer Classic champ in the spring, Red Tracer returned on March 1 at Rosehill with a satisfying win in the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m).

Imported veteran My Kingdom Of Fife, a rising 10-year-old, meanwhile hasn’t raced since October 2011.

They’re back to kick off their career once again however coming off two below par trials.

Sacred Falls meanwhile was last seen finishing under a length away from Boban in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m), the O’Reilly four-year-old coming off a winning Rosehill trial from last week.

Also with multiple chances of taking out this year’s Canterbury Stakes is Guy Walter with a trio from his stables led by the in-form Appearance who is after their third straight win this prep.

The daughter of Commands spent over four months on the sidelines before her first-up victory in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes on February 8 after which she returned two weeks later to make it two on the trot in the Group 2 Apollo over 1400m.

Walter has also nominated for another Group 1 winning mare in Streama coming via a Breeders Classic fifth from which the George Main champ is tipped to improve, and his Bernardini four-year-old Toydini.

Rounding out the nominees are Apollo Stakes runner-up Speediness for Colin Scot, the Joe Pride-trained Rain Affair and second favourite behind Zoustar for the TJ Smith Stakes Not Listenin’tome.

Second to Zoustar in the Coolmore last prep, Dylan Thomas youngster Not Listenin’tome comes off an emphatic four length win in the Group 3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield with Saturday to be their maiden Sydney run.
