Caulfield will be home to a stellar day of racing this Saturday April 23, 2011, with the Group 3 Easter Cup on the agenda.
The final field and barrier draw for the 2011 Easter Cup has been released today and shows that 17 horses have accepted to run as part of the 16 horses starting field.
Odds and betting markets for the 2011 Easter Cup will be available at leading bookmaker Luxbet closer to Saturday’s race.
The 2011 Easter Cup is a 2,000 metres stayer’s race that is worth $125,000 in prize money.
Peter Moody’s Luen Yat Forever is one of the horses to have accepted for the 2011 Easter Cup final field.
Luen Yat Forever finished ninth out of 15 runners in the Group 3 Queen’s Cup earlier this month, with the five-year-old obviously not at the top of his horse racing form.
The Honours List gelding, who is a multiple Group winner in Macau, will be looking for his first Australian win in the 2011 Easter Cup.
Luen Yat Forever will jump from barrier six in the Easter Cup and will be ridden by jockey Steven Arnold.
Also in the 2011 Easter Cup final field is Peter Snowden’s Launay, who has won six of his 15 career starts.
Launay has already won a Listed race during this preparation and will be looking to step up to Group level.
The four-year-old gelding will jump from barrier eight in the 2011 Easter Cup and will be ridden by jockey Mark Zahra.
Mick Price’s Spacecraft, Dale Sutton’s Zoomin and Tony Noonan’s Kutchinsky have also accepted for the 2011 Easter Cup.
