Timeless Prince Opts Out of 2015 Carrington Stakes

Five-year-old Timeless Prince will have to wait a little while longer to make his stakes company debut after trainer Tony Newing opted not to accept with the gelding in the Listed Carrington Stakes (1400m).

Newing had previously stated he would enter Timeless Prince in both the Carrington Stakes and a Benchmark 80 this Saturday at Royal Randwick and choose between the two later in the week depending on the weather.

“If it is wet he will run in the Carrington but if it’s dry he will run in the other race,” Newing told Sky Racing yesterday.

“On a wet track I think it brings the others back to him but he’s not quite up to that grade on a firmer track.

“I’ll play it by ear. There is some rain forecast. He hasn’t seen that many wet tracks but when he has he’s loved it.”

However when final fields were released on Wednesday, Timeless Prince was nowhere to be seen in the 2015 Carrington Stakes.

The gelding instead sits atop the field for the Benchmark 80, set to carry a hefty top weight of 61.5kg. However apprentice jockey Ms Samantha Clenton is set to claim her three kilograms, which would bring him down to 59.5kg. The gelding has also drawn the ideal third barrier in the capacity 14 field plus three emergencies.

Timeless Prince has placed in 20 of his 32 career starts, which includes winning a Benchmark 80 over 1400 metres last time out at Randwick.

After settling in the one by one spot, the gelding eased back at halfway. He had four lengths to make up at the turn but once he was in the clear he surged through, hitting the front at the 75 metre mark and winning a head in front of Smart Moochi.

The 2015 Carrington Stakes is one of two black-type races running at Randwick this long weekend. Open your Ladbrokes.com.au online betting accounts to get the best odds across the meetings. You’ll also receive up to $250 in a bonus match on your first bet when you quote code: BETBONUS.
