Hot Snitzel Heads 2011 Kindergarten Stakes Field

April 6th, 2011

Kicking off Australian Derby Day at Randwick Racecourse will be the $125,000 Kindergarten Stakes over 1100m.

The Group 3 race is for two-year-olds and has a fewe experienced juveniles up against a couple with very little racing experience.

The biggest name in the field is undoubtedly Hot Snitzel which contested the Golden Slipper just last weekend.

Unfortunately he finished at the back of the field but just getting into the race shows what a good horse he is.

Anise is another with a few races under her belt but she couldn’t quite crack a Golden Slipper start.

First up this year she finished second behind Foxwedge and in this race she should be a good chance for Peter Snowden.

Conroy’s Gap is the least tried runner and will in fact be making his race debut in the Kindergarten Stakes.

He’s Gerald Ryan’s second runner and in a real show of faith he’s elected to put Hugh Bowman on the debutant with Brenton Avdulla to take Hot Snitzel.

The other horse to watch out for is Jackpot Queen for Mathew Dale.

She is one from one this preparation and last year she came second in both her starts.

A full from guide for the 2011 Kindergarten Stakes will be available soon as well as expert tips later in the week.
