Auraria Stakes 2012 – Final Field & Barrier Draw

April 12th, 2012

The Group 3 Auraria Stakes is set to run at Morphettville Racecourse this Saturday April 14, 2012, and here you will find the final field and barrier draw for the race.

A full field of 16 runners plus four emergencies have accepted for a start in the 2012 Auraria Stakes, including Bart Cummings’ Empress Rock.

Empress Rock has drawn wide for the race in barrier 13, however, will come into barrier nine if all four emergencies are scratched from the field.

The three-year-old filly impressed jockey Steven Arnold during her final hit out early in the week, who has been engaged to ride Empress Rock in the 2012 Auraria Stakes.

“That was her final work (on Tuesday), she’s never a terrific track worker, but it was a good gallop ahead of Saturday,” Arnold said.

“She was a good winner in the Kewney (Stakes) and then up to the mile last time – she was really dominant.

“She’s a filly on the rise that’s for sure.”

The Fastnet Rock filly has won three of her six race starts and has earned close to $350,000 in prize money during her short career.

Bliss Street is also one of the 20 horses to feature in the 2012 Auraria Stakes final field and barrier draw.

The Flying Spur filly will be looking to improve on her last start tenth placing in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Racecourse.

Bliss Street has won four of her 16 race starts and has earned more than $375,000 in prize money.

The Daniel Morton-trained filly has drawn barrier three for the 2012 Auraria Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Shayne Cahill in the race.

Torah, Rahveel, Rock Culture and Just Discreet are also included in the 2012 Auraria Stakes final field and barrier draw.
