The 2014 Kindergarten Stakesfield has been released; with eleven juveniles set to contest the Group 3 event that will be run at Royal Randwick this weekend.
Headlining the 2014 Kindergarten Stakes final field is talented filly Echo Gal, who is returning to the races for the first time since she finished eighth behind Unencumbered in the Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 11.
Echo Gal (barrier six) stamped herself as a filly to watch with a dominant fourth lengths win on debut in the TAB Rewards Plate (1000m) at Warwick Farm on December 11, but was found to have suffered the thumps after finishing towards the tail of the field in the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) before being caught wide in the Magic Millions Classic.
Echo Gal is joined in the 2014 Kindergarten Stakes final field by stablemate Donelle.
Donelle (barrier four) made her racing debut with a second place finish behind Silversands in the Inglis Banner at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day last year and was far from disgraced when sixth in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) at Warwick Farm on March 8 before tiring in the final stages of the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 29.
I Am Snippety made her racing debut with a second place finish behind Echo Gal and is taking winning form into the Kindergarten Stakes after scoring a dominant six and a half lengths victory in a juvenile event at Wellington on March 23.
Team Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown (barrier five) and Albury-based Loved Up (barrier three) are both also taking winning form into the 2014 Kindergarten Stakes after producing impressive performances on debut.
Gerald Ryan has four leading chances in the 2014 Sires Produce Stakes and also has an excellent chance in the Kindergarten Stakes; with Klammer set to contest the Group 3 event this weekend.
Klammer finished second behind stablemate Lucky Racquie in the Listed Black Opal Stakes (1200m) in Canberra on March 9 and performed fairly on a heavy track in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 29.
Rounding out the 2014 Kindergarten Stakes final field are Kuro (barrier one), Zizumba (barrier ten) and debutants Kaepernick (barrier eight), Redoubtable Heart (barrier two) and Washington Hearts (barrier seven).
