2010 Alister Clark Stakes Preview

February 4th, 2010

The Group 1 Australia Stakes (1200m) may be headlining the proceedings at the Moonee Valley Racecourse next Saturday, but the world famous track has far more than simply the one race on offer to its visitors.

The horse to look out for may well be Take The Rap.

The 2010 Alister Clark Stakes should not be ignored as it showcases the top three-year-old colts and geldings as they battle it out over the 1600m event.

Competing under set-weight with penalty conditions, the entrants for the race will be hoping to get a slice of the $180,000 prize money up for grabs.

The Group 3 C S Hayes (1400m) is often an indicator for the Alister Clark Stakes as to participants and results, so from this early in the game, the horse to look out for may well be the 2010 winner of the race, Take The Rap.

The 2010 Alister Clark Stakes is just one of the Group 2 events taking place on Saturday the 13th, with the Sunline Stakes (1600m) and the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1500m) also running.
