2011 Light Fingers Stakes – Sydney Autumn Racing

January 18th, 2011

On Saturday February 12 the 2011 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival gets into full swing as the Royal Randwick Racecourse hosts Light Fingers Stakes Day headlined by the $200,000 Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m).

A set weights race for three-year-old fillies, the 2011 Light Fingers Stakes is the first leg of the Patinack Farm’s $1 million Bonus Series and is one of the first big Sydney betting events for punters.

Attracting the season’s classiest young fillies, the Light Fingers Stakes is often the first-up assignment for fillies in the autumn season that may have previously contested events like the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill in the spring.

Other Group race highlights on the Light Fingers Stakes Day card worth checking out the odds for at an online bookie like Luxbet are the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) and the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m).

Good follow up events for fillies after the Light Fingers Stakes include the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 12 or the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on March 5 that 2010 Light Fingers Stakes winner More Joyous went on to win.

The best Light Fingers Stakes runners may continue onto the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic (1500m) for fillies and mares at Rosehill on March 19, however Light Fingers Stakes winners don’t have the best record against older company in this $600,000 feature.

Nominations for the 2011 Light Fingers Stakes close on Monday February 7 and then the final field of acceptors will be released on Wednesday February 9 and published right here.
