Rosehill Garden’s Golden Slipper Day will start with a bang when the Group 3 The Schweppervescence runs as Race 1 this Saturday April 2, 2011.
The $125,000 The Schweppervescence is set to jump at 11.50am (AEDST) and is a 1400m race open to two-year-old fillies, colts and geldings only.
Headlining the 2011 The Schweppervescence final field is Scott Aspery’s Flight Of Pegasus.
Flight Of Pegasus will be having his third career start in the 2011 The Schweppervescence on Saturday.
The Fusaichi Pegasus gelding won his first start by almost a length in a Wyong Maiden on February 20, 2011, and finished a gallant third behind Uate and Hot Snitzel in the Group 3 Skyline Stakes on March 12, 2011.
Flight Of Pegasus has been allocated the inside barrier for Saturday’s The Schweppervescence and will be ridden by jockey Tim Clark.
Gai Waterhouse’s Satirical Boy is amongst the 2011 The Schweppervescence final field.
The two-year-old, also by Fusaichi Pegasus, will be looking for his second win of his career after he won his only other start in the Stanhope Gardens News Open Handicap on March 10.
The young gelding won his last start by a length and a half and will be stepping up to his first taste of Group competition in the Group 3 The Schweppervescence.
Satirical Boy will jump from barrier five, will be ridden by jockey Nash Rawiller and will carry 55.5 kilograms.
Also included in the 2011 The Schweppervescence final field are Anthony Cummings’ Sandhurst, Peter Snowden’s Induna and Bede Murray’s Continental Flyer.
