Odds For The 2010 Robert Sangster Stakes

March 18th, 2010

Just before 5pm this Saturday at the Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide, the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) will kick off, forming part of the track’s illustrious Schweppes Oaks Lades Day.

While the Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2000m) may headline the day’s proceedings, the Robert Sangster Stakes will certainly provide an exciting race, as 20 fillies and mares compete for the $300,000 prize money.

Going into Saturday’s race, it seems Velocitea, trained by Mick Price is the horse to beat at $5.50. The four-year-old mare, starting from the fourth barrier, has won all of her previous three starts – one of which she beat fellow Robert Sangster Stakes starter Valentine Miss.

Close in the odds behind Velocitea is Headway at $6. With a wider start from the 12th barrier, the Peter Moody-trained filly has not placed in her last three starts, and looks to have relatively high odds.

Going into Saturday’s race, it seems Velocitea, trained by Mick Price is the horse to beat at $5.50.

Rounding out the odds for the top three is Majestic Music at $7.

The filly recently won the Group 2 Yallambee Classic (1200m) at the same track over the same distance as the Robert Sangster Stakes, where she beat fellow starter and strong contender for Saturday’s race Sister Madly, and would provide a substantial reward if she wins on Saturday.

Sister Madly is starting from the second barrier at $8.

Closing the odds for the Robert Sangster Stakes is Falvelon’s Dream at $201. While the five-year-old mare may have seemingly impossible odds, she has placed in two of her last three starts, and would certainly bring back a handsome win if she succeeded in Adelaide.

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