Horse Racing Heats Up In November

This week sees plenty of horse racing action for Aussie punters.

Sandown Classic – 18 November

The Sandown Classic (also known as the Zipping Classic) is a Group 2 weight for age race run over a distance of 2400m.  This year’s final field of 8 have been announced and include names like Almandin, Big Duke and So Si Bon.  So Si Bon placed 4th in 2016.

Sandown Guineas – 18 November

The Group 2 Sandown Guineas is open to three year olds and is run over 1600m.  Tony McEvoy trained Vinland is a race favourite this year, despite earlier fitness qualms.  Despite earlier concerns, McEvoy is confident that the colt has what it takes to compete at Sandown level.

Sandown Stakes – 18 November

Last year’s runner-up, Swacadelic, is poised and ready to go one better during this year’s Sandown Stakes, on November 18th.  Last year he was only beaten by a head so it’s not far-fetched to expect that this will be the year for Swacadelic.

Eclipse Stakes – 18 November

The Eclipse Stakes, also run at Sandown, is run over a distance of 1800m and is a Group 3 thoroughbred horse race.  The nominations have been set, with Balf’s Choice, Dodging Bullets, Foundation and Jacquinot Bay all in for a start.

Kevin Heffernan Stakes – 18 November

The Kevin Heffernan Stakes is a Group 3 race for thoroughbreds and is run over 1300m.  Past winners include Lucky Hussler (2016), Famous Seamus (2015) and the legendary Lankan Rupee (2013).

Summoned Stakes – 18 November

Run under set weights with penalty conditions for mares four years old and up, the Summoned Stakes is run over a distance of 1500m.  The weighted conditions level the field slightly, giving the more talented mares an advantage.  Silent Sendition reigned victorious in 2016.

WA Champion Fillies Stakes – 18 November

Owner Bob Peters has confirmed that the unbeaten filly Mikimoto is a confirmed competitor in this year’s WA Champion Fillies Stakes.  The WA Champion Fillies Stakes is a Group 3 race run over a distance of 1600m. Perfect Jewel and Showcase will also be starting for Peters.

Colonel Reeves Stakes – 18 November

Albany sprinter Dream Lifter has been nominated for the quality handicap Colonel Reeves Stakes.  Run over a distance of 1100m at Ascot racecourse in Perth, the Colonel Reeves Stakes was won by Vega Magic in 2016.

RJ Peters Stakes – 18 November

The RJ Peters Stakes is a Group 3 quality handicap race run over a distance of 1500 metres.  Classy mare Ellicazoom will more than likely compete in this year’s race and is certainly worth keeping an eye on.
