2010 Kindergarten Stakes Final Field

March 4th, 2010

This Saturday as part of the excellent line-up of feature races taking place at Warwick Farm, ten promising two-year-olds will take to the turf in the $125, 000 Group 3 Cabra-Vale Diggers Kindergarten Stakes (1100m).

Solar Charged is the hot pre-race favourite for the 2010 Kindergarten Stakes at $1.90 with Ladbrokes.com.au. The John O’Shea trained Charge Forward filly won her solo race start back in November and will start from barrier seven with Hugh Bowman aboard on Saturday.

Other classy youngsters seeking a Black Type victory in the Kindergarten Stakes include Georgette Silk and Elimbari, both sitting as equal second favourites at $5.

Flying Spur filly Georgette Silk is coming off a sensational last-start win in the Widden Stakes (1100m) at Randwick, her maiden victory from two starts. Prepared by local Warwick Farm trainer Clarry Conners, Georgette Silk has drawn barrier eight for the Kindergarten Stakes and will be ridden by champion jockey Blake Shinn.

Elimbari has fared better in the barrier draw and will jump from gate three. The Kris Lees-trained daughter of Fastnet Rock was victorious in her first and only career start to date back in January at Rosehill.

Also keep an eye on the Allan Denham-trained Agister out wide in nine and Triple Crown in barrier one looking to atone for her last place finish in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic in January at the Gold Coast.

The headline race of the day is the $300, 000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes and it is the first time in three years the Chipping Norton Stakes has been held at Warwick Farm.

The Cabra-Vale Diggers Kindergarten Stakes is scheduled as race four on the day’s thrilling eight-event programme and is programmed to commence at 2:57pm.
