Red Anchor Stakes 2014 Final Field & Barrier Draw

11 runners will take the field this Saturday in the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse, with some of the most exciting three-year-old sprint prospects declaring for the race.

The Chris Waller-trained Law is the highest rated runner on the field, and will benefit from the sought-after inside run after drawing barrier one with Zac Purton to ride.

The three-year-old colt will make his first start for Waller this Saturday, after transferring to his care from Gai Waterhouse.

Law won the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate (1000m) on debut in October last year before immediately being spelled. He then returned in spectacular fashion with an easy four length victory in the Adaptra Handicap (1000m) four months later. Law had a tough time in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on April 5th, finishing dead-last in the rain-soaked race.

A third placing in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) first time up put him on track for a good spring but he failed to impress a fortnight later in the Group 3 Run To The Rose (1200m) despite a good start from barrier one.

The colt is hit-and-miss but should be in with a fighting chance after drawing well.

Mick Price’s Pressing will be ready to give Law a run for his money, as he drew barrier four with Craig Newitt set to ride.

The three-year-old colt has had just four career starts, two of which he won including the Listed Mt Dandenong Stakes (1200m) in May.

He made the step up to the highest level of racing for the Group 1 J.J. Atkins Stakes (1600m) back in June, which was also his last time on the field. He ran well but couldn’t keep up with the top three, settling for fourth place.

Trainers David Hayes & Tom Dabernig are set to launch a two-pronged attack on the 2014 Red Anchor Stakes, with both Shaf and Galaxy Pegagus representing the pair.

Three-year-old Shaf has only finished outside the top three once in his five career starts though this will be the first black type race for the colt. He impressively won his maiden plate in August by five lengths and also enjoyed a win his last time out after seeing his weight decrease by two kilos.

Shaf will start from barrier nine with champion jockey Kerrin McEvoy to ride.

Galaxy Pegasus will also be saddled by a top jockey, with Damien Oliver set to bring him home from gate three. The colt has only had three career starts to date, two of which he won. His debut in black type racing didn’t go too well however, after finishing 10th in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) last month.
