Ecuador Tops 2017 Carrington Stakes Odds

A tight Carrington Stakes 2017 betting market for Sydney’s feature race on Saturday is currently led by the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained last start winner Ecuador.

Ecuador is one of only seven horses lining-up in Randwick Race 7 at 4:20pm (AEDT) on the weekend in the $150,000 Listed Tattersalls Club Carrington Stakes (1400m).

The consistent High Chaparral seven-year-old has a stellar 1400m record of three wins and two seconds from six starts over the distance he sees again in the Carrington.

He comes off a first-up Rosehill win over the metres in the December Handicap from late last month when carting 62kg to a smart one length victory.

Second-up on Saturday he again gives the weight away with 61kg and has in-form jockey Adam Hyeronimus in the saddle once more.

Ecuador gets the rails run from barrier one in the Carrington Stakes field and currently pays $3.80 through Ladbrokes.com.au to continue his impressive summer campaign after being freshened-up from his resuming run.

Equal with Ecuador at $3.80 is Oxford Poet who Tommy Berry rides from barrier five for Wyong trainer Kim Waugh.

The Dylan Thomas six-year-old has plenty of good form at the Randwick track (6-1-2-2) and over the distance (9-2-2-3) and will relish getting out over more metres after a first-up third in the Summer Sprint (1000m) at Warwick Farm.

Oxford Poet carted 61kg that day and drops back notably in weight to 55kg on the weekend, plus the horse has finished in the money in all four of his previous second-up runs to date.

The next best fancied at $4.80 and firming in the latest Carrington Stakes odds at the opposite end of the weight-scale to Ecuador is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Gold Symphony getting in on 53kg.

Formerly with Peter Moody for whom he won back-to-back Group 3 races in Melbourne as three-year-old, the now four-year-old Reward For Effort gelding returned to winning form last time out.

Gold Symphony enjoyed a win over subsequent Belle Of The Turf Stakes winning mare Imposing Lass at Warwick Farm and drops from 54.5kg that run for his weekend step back up to stakes company.

Any rain around in Sydney will aid Gold Symphony in his Carrington Stakes bid and the bookies are taking no chances with the back-in-form hopeful.

There are two other single-figure hopes in the markets with Ninth Legion ($5) and Princefamous ($6.50) drawn in barriers two and three respectively.

Former hoop Peter Robl saddles-up Fastnet Rock seven-year-old Ninth Legion, the gelding back in Sydney for the first time since his two lengths away seventh to Sweet Redemption in the Group 3 Festival Stakes (1500m) from early December.

He travelled to Brisbane after that for a fourth in the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) and second to Most Important on New Year’s Eve in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1300m) at Eagle Farm last time out.

Freshened-up since, Ninth Legion is a genuine 1400m galloper who has had 20 previous runs over the distance for a commanding record of six wins, four seconds and two thirds.

Princefamous meanwhile is the other Team Snowden-trained Carrington Stakes hopeful.

A five-year-old son of Fast ‘N’ Famous, the galloper ran third two back in the Listed Starlight Stakes (1100m) and is out to atone for an 11th in the Listed Canterbury Classic (1200m) last start.
