Carlton Draught Railway Stakes
The Melbourne spring carnival might be winding down, but the action is only starting to warm up in WA. The 1600m Group 2 test sees the colts and fillies come together to decide early-season supremacy.
Group One Carlton Draught Railway Stakes will carry stake money of $3 million and, by 2011, a further $2 million will be added
As some potential Railway contenders have their final hit out in the $125,000 RJ Peters Stakes, and sprinters scorch around in the $200,000 Colonel Reeves Stakes and some classy fillies and mares battle it out in the $75,000 Jungle Mist Classic, all eyes will be on the three-year-olds.
The Festival of Perth Racing goes on show every Friday at the Burswood Entertainment Complex.Join your hosts Marty Young, David Shorte and Josh Rodder as they go behind-the-scenes with WA’s top racing identities.
Entry is free! Show starts at 12.30pm
Special guests on Friday November 20 will be Melbourne Cup winning combination Corey Brown and Mark Kavanagh, Railway Stakes favorite Gold Salute’s trainer Mark Riley and Railway Stakes winning jockey Pat Carbery.
Colour Correct and the underrated mare Delta Gee might do best of the rest, but don’t be surprised if Universal Ruler puts in a big run fresh.
You’re never quite sure about this son of Scenic, as befits a five-year-old stallion, but on his day he’s the best horse in this field. And if you’re looking for the blowout, then Roman Time, a stablemate of grand Nirvana, could be the one.
