The 2010 Blamey Stakes Preview

February 5th, 2010

The Flemington Racecourse has a busy few weeks ahead of it, and one race which will draw spectators and top quality horses alike, is the 2010 Blamey Stakes.

Taking place on the 13th of March, the 1,600 metre Group 2 race will certainly produce a top quality field once again.

Rebel Raider could be a contender for the 2010 Blamey Stakes.

Rebel Raider could be a contender for the 2010 Blamey Stakes as the Leon Macdonald horse comes back from an injury-riddled season. However the four-year-old will hope to find the form he had winning the 2009 SA Derby (2500m) to get a chunk of the $350,000 prize money.

Also racing on the 13th will be the Group 3 Matron Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.

A race to keep an eye on in the lead up to the 2010 Blamey Stakes is the Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1400m) held at Caulfield on the 20th of February.
