This Saturday, April 27, the final major meeting of the famous Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival will light up Randwick Racecourse with the always popular Sydney Cup Day 2013.
There is a bumper line-up of eight races on the program including four Group 1 highlights.
The first of the elite levels runs as Randwick Race 4 at 2:15pm with the $500,000 Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).
The 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes will be one of the most popular races on the program as it is the latest race on the agenda for Murray Baker’s superlative Kiwi colt It’s A Dundeel out for his fourth Group 1 on the trot.
The action continues next race with the juveniles facing off in the $400,000 Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) where last start Sires Produce Stakes winning filly Guelph will jump odds-on favourite to score her second Group 1 on the trot.
Finally the meeting’s marquee event will run as Race 6 at 3:35pm (AEST) with the $500,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) where an 11 horse field is led by the Chris Waller-trained Kelinni who won at the track in the mud last Saturday.
Rounding out the majors is then the non-official headliner, the $400,000 Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) which threatens to steal the show this Saturday with Black Caviar’s boom half-brother All Too Hard facing off against Gai Waterhouse’s glamour mare More Joyous – the experienced mare narrowly holding favouritism.
