2010 Robert Sangster Stakes Preview

February 8th, 2010

As the Morphettville Racecourse prepares to host one of its most elite race days in the Adelaide Carnival – the Robert Sangster Stakes Day, the headlining race being the 2010 Robert Sangster Stakes, is drawing closer.

The Group 1 race, held on Saturday the 20th of March,  is a fillies and mares, weight-for-age event over 1,200 metres and sees some of the country’s top competitors vying for a slice of the $300,000 purse.

The 2010 Robert Sangster Stakes seems set to be host to the Mick Price-trained Velocitea. The four-year-old would certainly be a strong contender having won the Hyderabad Race Club Stakes in February.

There has also been talk about the three-year-old Black Caviar competing in the 2010 Robert Sangster Stakes. While there is a possibility the Peter Moody-trained filly may head overseas at some point this season, if she were to start in the Robert Sangster Stakes, she could be a favourite as her last three starts have all resulted in wins.

While the 2010 Robert Sangster Stakes will headline the proceedings at the Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide on the 20th of March, the Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) and the Group 3 The Jansz National Stakes (1200m) are two other notable races to take place.
