The 2011 Blamey Stakes Final Field announcement has excited a lot of people with 10 horses all with very real chances of taking out the Group 2 event on Saturday March 12th at Flemington Racecourse.
The 1600m race worth a quarter of a million dollars is for three year old’s and above and will jump as Race 4 on the Flemington card.
The list is headlined by the equal top weight Whobegotyou but yet again his luck has deserted him in the barrier draw.
He’ll jump from the widest gate and have to do it all in a mirror of last start where he was virtually racing for second after giving an advantage to More Joyous in both weight and barrier.
The catch here is there is no horse of that quality, meaning if he puts in a run anywhere near as impressive as his Futurity Stakes second place he’ll be the winner.
Standing in his way though is fellow top weight on 58kgs Doubtful Jack.
This gelding has had two average runs at Group 1 level but his overall win record still sits around 50 percent.
The other big contender in the 2011 Blamey stakes has to be Dao Dao which came third behind Whobegotyou in the Futurity and second in the Emirates last year.
Second up he’s six starts for three wins and two seconds so is certainly one to watch from barrier two.
By the looks of things the 2011 Blamey Stakes could be very popular with the punters with a couple of crowd favourites in the mix with a real chance.
