The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday April 7, 2012.
Monton is amongst the 17 horses nominated for a spot in the 2012 George Ryder Stakes.
The Catbird gelding has won six of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $470,000 in prize money.
Trainer Ron Quinton is confident Monton can win the 2012 George Ryder Stakes.
“He’s come along really well,” Quinton said.
“Unfortunately we couldn’t see much of his work because the fog was too bad when he worked but my rider was happy.”
Monton finished second to More Joyous in the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes last start where he was ridden by jockey Craig Newitt.
Newitt has signed on to ride Monton in both the 2012 George Ryder Stakes and the upcoming $2 million Doncaster Mile on April 21, 2012.
“Craig Newitt rides him on Saturday and he’ll ride him in the Doncaster as well.”
“I explained to him (Newitt) before the Canterbury Stakes the races that I was going to run him in,” Quinton said.
“When he came back in after the race I said to him, `That horse only has 52 and a half kilos in the Doncaster, he can’t be rehandicapped and he’s exempt from any ballot’.
“He said to me, `I know because I’m riding him’.”
Monton has drawn barrier five for the 2012 George Ryder Stakes and will carry 59 kilograms.
