Fontein Ruby Will Run in 2014 Caulfield Classic Over Thousand Guineas

As the final field and barrier draw were released this morning for the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m), there was one notable omission.

Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) winner Fontein Ruby was expected to be one of the top contenders for the fillies-only feature race at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday but trainer Robert Smerdon has decided to keep her on a 2014 Crown Oaks path which means she has to run in the Caulfield Classic 2014 instead.

The winner of last Saturday’s Turnbull Stakes Day supporting race will run Saturday week in the $750,000 Group 3 Caulfield Classic (2000m) before making the trip up in distance in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) on November 6 at Flemington Racecourse.

“We’ve decided she won’t go to the Thousand Guineas, rather we’ll keep her on a path to the Oaks and that means running in the Caulfield Classic,” Smerdon told Racing Network on Tuesday.

“She’s a tough thing and she has come through last week really well, as I thought she would.

“We gave a lot of thought to which way to go, but we decided to keep going to the Oaks so that meant going to the longer race next week (Classic),” he said.

Online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is currently offering early 2014 Caulfield Classic odds of $13 for Fontein Ruby, with Looks Like The Cat ($4.40) the clear favourite.

Smerdon won’t go unrepresented in the $500,000 Thousand Guineas, after Lumosty was given a late entry last week following a spectacular nine-length maiden victory at Sale Racecourse.

The filly will jump from barrier seven with Craig Williams to ride.
