2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes Betting Tips & Selections

A field of 16 three-year-old sprinters will race this Saturday in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m), in a last ditch effort to secure a win at the highest level of racing this season.

The 2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes is one of four Group One races running at Flemington this Saturday, as part of Victoria Derby Day.

Rich Enuff leads the Coolmore Stud Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, with a price of $3.20.

The Ken Keys’ trained colt is still searching for his first Group One win after a great 2014 spring campaign. He has steadily increased distance over his four appearances this season which may throw him into a loop in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Will the favourite justify his favouritism and scored his well-deserved first Group One win? Or will one of the other 15 talented sprint stars on the field steal the victory?

With so many top sprinters taking the field, you may find it difficult to pick a winner. Check out our betting tips below for a little bit of clarity.


#1 Rich Enuff ($3.20)

You can’t go past the favourite in the Coolmore Stud Stakes considering he’s finishing in the top three from his five career starts. Rich Enuff has had a fantastic spring campaign after winning three consecutive races including the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) by an impressive 2.5 lengths. The colt enjoyed his first trip at Group One level last time out in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) but his lead was nabbed late after over-racing early. After being tested over the mile, he will enjoy the step back down to 1200m.


#14 Earthquake ($9)

The Coolmore Stud Stakes has historically been dominated by colts due to the stud value tied to the race but fillies have stamped their mark on the race in recent years. Six fillies have won the race since 2000 and Earthquake could easily become the eighth. The Godolphin filly is a last start winner after taking out the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m). Like Rich Enuff, she has finished top three in all eight of her career starts, making her a top-class horse. She will be without regular jockey Kerrin McEvoy however, who’ll saddle Rubick instead. Plenty of experience over the 1200m distance of the Coolmore Stud Stakes.


#8 Kuro ($6.50)

Joseph Pride’s New Zealand colt Kuro could easily finish in the top three on Saturday. He has impressively won five of his seven career starts, including the last four in a row. He won the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m) last time out, 2.5 lengths clear of Time For War in second place.

There are plenty of other top-rated, classy horses on the field but if you agree with our 2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes picks, make sure to back them at Ladbrokes.com.au now.

You could win $3 million this Saturday for just $3. Check out the Ladbrokes MegaPick for more details.
