2010 Robert Sangster Stakes Final Field

March 17th, 2010

The Morphettville Racecourse will come to life this Saturday as the Schweppes Oaks Ladies Day takes place, and while the Schweppes Oaks dominates the day’s proceedings, the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) will be another feature.

Also known as the Sportingbet Classic, the Robert Sangster Stakes will be the seventh race of the day, kicking off just before 5pm with a large 20-horse line up.

The fillies and mares will compete over the 1,200 metres for a share in the $300,000 on offer.

Drawing the inside barrier is Cerberus Gal who came third in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) in March.

Majestic Music is a strong contender and will start on Saturday in the middle 10th barrier.

Starting out wide will be the Gordon Richards-trained Jaalippy and with such a large field will certainly feel the wrath of the wide draw. The four-year-old mare finished second in the Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) and will need to draw on her experience to succeed in the Robert Sangster Stakes.

Majestic Music is a strong contender after winning the Group 2 Yallambee Classic (1200m) and will start on Saturday in the middle 10th barrier. The three-year-old filly beat the Anthony Cummings-trained Sister Madly, the filly took the runners up spot, and is starting the Robert Sangster Stakes from the second barrier.

Also taking place at the Morphettville Racecourse on Saturday will be the Group 1 Schweppes Australasian Oaks (2000m) and the Group 3 The Jansz National Stakes (1200m).
