November 11th, 2010

The 2010 Sandown Stakes final field and barrier draw for this Saturday’s showdown at Betfair Park Sandown Hillside have been released, the race one of the major features of Sandown Classic Day.

The $125,000 Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m) is registered this year as the Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation Stakes and has drawn a field of 15 quality gallopers.

Top weight in the field is Macau horse Luen Yat Forever, the Honours List gelding coming off a gallant fourth in the Emirates Stakes and set to carry a hefty 58kg from barrier nine.

Early favourites for the Sandown Stakes include Peter Moody’s Caulfield Sprint winning mare Set For Fame and the Peter Snowden-trained Demerit coming off an eye-catching second in the AAMI Business Insurance Stakes on a Heavy Flemington track on Derby Day.

Good place chances include Rockpecker and Larry’s Never Late, drawn in barriers 13 and 12 respectively.

The 2010 Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation Sandown Stakes is Race 5 on the card at Sandown for Saturday, set to start at 2:50pm (AEDST).
