2010 South Australian Derby Final Field & Preview

Allan Scott Park Morphettville are gearing up to host one of South Australia’s premier race days this Sunday headlined by the 136th running of the $300,000 Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m).

The 2010 South Australian Derby has drawn a capacity field of 16 three-year-olds plus four emergencies ready to fight it out for the $190,950 first prize.

Two stayers are currently battling for favouritism in the betting markets, Red Colossus and Kidnapped.

Until the barrier draw was announced, the Peter Snowden-trained Kidnapped was the hot favourite. However the Viscount gelding suffered a massive blow drawing the horror barrier 20 for Sunday and drifted out to second favourite.

Kidnapped, who will have in-form hoop Kerrin McEvoy aboard, is now paying $5 with Ladbrokes.com.au while Red Colossus sits as the $4.60 favourite.

Last start winner of the Listed Chairman’s Stakes (2000m), where Kidnapped ran third, the Greg Eurell-trained Red Colossus fared much better drawing ideally in barrier two for the SA Derby.

Red Colossus has had an impressive career to date, winning four of his nine race starts and will be ridden by Chris Symons on Sunday who is aiming for his maiden Group 1 win.

Other top chances in the 2010 South Australian Derby include the lightly raced Michael Kent-trained Second King (barrier seven), Storm Brewing (barrier five) who will be ridden by Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes winning jockey Steven King, and David Hayes’ promising duo Extra Zero and Token Of Honour.

Danzero colt Extra Zero ran a credible fifth to Shoot Out last start in the Group 1 AJC Derby and has drawn out wide in barrier 13.

His stablemate Token Of Honour, who ran second to Derby favourite Red Colossus last start, has come up trumps in the barrier draw, the Testa Rossa gelding ready to start from the inside alley.

The other elite level drawcard at the meeting is the $300,000 Group 1 Goodwood (1200m) featuring a near capacity field of 17 including pre-race favourite Catapulted.

Also on the seven-race programme are the $200,000 Group 3 RA Lee Stakes (1600m), the $100,000 Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m), and two Listed races.

The 2010 South Australian Derby is scheduled to jump at 2:50pm as race six, and don’t forget to visit Ladbrokes.com.au who have the best Morphettville Races odds for this Sunday.
