The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday night March 16, 2012.
10 horses have accepted to be part of the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes final field, including Sangster.
Sangster won the Group 1 Victoria Derby at Flemington last spring, however, has failed to impress in his two starts this autumn.
The Savabeel gelding finished last in his first-up run in the Group 1 Waikato Draught Sprint in New Zealand before finishing 15th of 16 runners in the Group 1 Australian Guineas last start.
Sangster will be looking to turn his form around when he runs in the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes this Friday.
The three-year-old gelding has drawn barrier two for the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Danny Nikolic.
Sabrage is also part of the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes final field and barrier draw.
The Charge Forward colt will be looking to improve on his sixth placing in the Australian Guineas last start.
Trainer Michael Moroney is hoping Sabrage can show his true ability in the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes.
Sabrage will have to contend with his barrier draw of eight in the race, in which he will be ridden by jockey Damien Oliver.
“The barrier draw is a bit of a question. He’s had no luck with barrier draws this time in,” Moroney said.
“Hopefully he’ll draw better when he gets to the Group Ones I suppose.”
Sabrage has won two of his eight career starts and has earned close to $300,000 in prize money.
Highly Recommended and Proliferate are also included in the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes final field and barrier draw.
