Six Acceptors for 2016 San Domenico Stakes Field

A diminutive field of just six three-year-olds will face off in the San Domenico Stakes 2016 at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday in Sydney including the odds-on favourite Capitalist.

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Written Tycoon colt hasn’t raced since scoring a win in the world’s richest race for juveniles in the autumn’s $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

A Heavy (10) Randwick track saw Capitalist scratched from last weekend’s weight-for-age Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

He makes his delayed return and three-year-old debut this Saturday at Rosehill, the venue of his Slipper success, and has scared off all but five rivals.

Heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 10, Capitalist jumps from barrier four on Saturday but carries the 60kg top weight in the set weights plus penalties clash.

His most notable rival looks to be the undefeated Tango Rain who shoots for a third win from as many career starts.

Kerrin McEvoy, who was on standby for the Capitalist ride in the Missile Stakes on just 51.5kg, partners the Gerald Ryan-trained Tango Rain this weekend while Blake Shinn reunites with the top fancy.

Manhattan Rain colt Tango Rain has his first start in stakes company in the San Domenico Stakes on the back of a Canterbury win over 1200m from July 23 where he beat home subsequent The Rosebud winner Thronum by one and a quarter lengths.

The other best fancied in early betting for the $150,000 Group 3 Smithfield RSL Club San Domenico Stakes (1100m) to score the upset is the Hawkes Racing-trained Star Turn who Tommy Berry rides.

Dwayne Dunn rode the Star Witness colt for his three latest wins in the autumn including a Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) fifth and Golden Slipper sixth.

Prior to that Berry was in the saddle for Star Turn’s opening two career runs that produced a third on debut over 1000m at Randwick and a win at the same track by three lengths last October in the Listed Pierro Stakes (1100m).

Star Turn has won two Sydney trials since the Golden Slipper run including an August 2 win over 900m at Rosehill, Berry aboard for both hit-outs.

The only filly taking on the colts and geldings in this year’s San Domenico Stakes is the Joe Pride-trained Kentucky Miss.

She gets the rails run from barrier one, the twice Group 2 performed daughter of Foxwedge last seen crossing fifth to Derryn over 1000m at Caulfield on July 30.

Rounding out the field are the Tony Noonan-trained Jimmy Choux colt Manolo Blahniq from New Zealand who makes his Australian debut in the race and triple Group placed Sebring gelding Mount Panorama who is now prepared by Gary Moore.
