2011 CF Orr Stakes Next for Australia Stakes Winner Whitefriars

Whitefriars

Whitefriars heading to the 2011 CF Orr Stakes after winning the Australia Stakes

Upset winner of the Group 2 Australia Stakes, Whitefriars is again set to face-off against glamour mare Typhoon Tracy who he upstaged on Friday night with the pair both heading towards the 2011 CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield on February 12.

The opening Group race of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, the Australia Stakes was run at Moonee Valley on January 28 and five-year-old Whitefriars was able to narrowly defeat the Mark Kavanagh-trained Undeniably with odds-on favourite Typhoon Tracy finishing a length away third.

After their strong performance, the Rick Worthington-trained Whitefriars now has the $400,000 Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) in their sights.

Beaten favourite in the Australia Stakes, Peter Moody’s Typhoon Tracy is also heading towards the CF Orr where she will again attempt to break her longest ever losing streak.

Five-year-old Arena gelding Whitefriars has been a model of consistency over their recent campaigns.

During the spring Whitefriars claimed a first-up win at Warwick Farm before running second to Hot Danish in the Group 2 The Shorts (1200m) at Randwick, winning the Listed Lightning Handicap (1100m)  and Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) and then finished with a good third in the Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot.

First-up this year Whitefriars was narrowly defeated in the Listed Canterbury Classic (1100m) before their second-up success in the Australia Stakes.

Following Friday night’s win, Whitefriars will likely open at the top of the CF Orr Stakes odds when markets are released at Luxbet.

Yet to win over a distance greater than 1200m, Worthington is confident of Whitefriars’ ability at 1400m in the CF Orr and has also suggest running him over the mile later in the season, possibly in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile at Randwick on April 16.

Nominations for the 2011 CF Orr Stakes will close on February 7 followed by the release of the final field of acceptors on February 9.
