This Saturday as part of the sensational race day scheduled for Rosehill Gardens, which will be headlined by the illustrious $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes, four other Group 1 features will run including the $400, 000 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).
The 2010 George Ryder Stakes has attracted a capacity sized field of 17 nominations with some impressive hopefuls including Australia’s highest-rated mare Typhoon Tracy.
The Peter Moody-trained Typhoon Tracy has a near perfect record of nine wins from 12 career starts and is already a four time Group 1 winner. The brilliant daughter of Red Ransom was looking to secure her fifth top level victory in the Coolmore Classic on March 20, but was withdrawn after being allocated a massive 61kg.
Premier trainer Moody also has his improving Redoute’s Choice colt Tickets nominated for the George Ryder Stakes, coming off a victory in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes.
Other top nominees include Mick Price’s four-year-old Heart Of Dreams coming off a luckless fourth in the Group 1 Australian Cup, third placegetter in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes Danleigh and last start Group 2 Blamey Stakes winner Lord Tavistock.
Racing veterans nominated for the 2010 George Ryder Stakes include eight-year-old El Segundo, seven-year-old Vision And Power and the Tracey Bartley-trained Sniper’s Bullet.
The final field of acceptances for the 2010 George Ryder Stakes will be announced later in the week and published here.
