2011 Memsie Stakes Race Preview – Caulfield Racing

July 13th, 2011

The 2011 Memsie Stakes will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday August 27, 2011.

Run under weight-for-age conditions, the Memsie Stakes is worth $200,000 in prize money.

The Group 2 Memsie Stakes is run over a distance of 1,400 metres and is held on the same day as the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes.

Known as a solid lead-up race to the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup, the 2011 Memsie Stakes is sure to attract a talented field of runners.

Last year the Memsie Stakes was won by the great So You Think, who has gone on to tackle some of the biggest races in Europe this year.

While the chances are slim that So You Think would feature in the 2011 Memsie Stakes, it is sure to be of the most thrilling sprints of the spring carnival.

The current horse racing news is that Melbourne Cup hopeful Moudre may run in the 2011 Memsie Stakes.

Trainer Ciaran Maher said the five-year-old gelding was in his prime after having a nice spell.

“Moudre is going well,” Maher said.

He’s back in work, his action is good and he’s just ticking along slowly at the moment.”

“He might resume in a handicap on Memsie Stakes day at Caulfield.”

However, there is a chance that Moudre may bypass the 2011 Memsie Stakes in favour of races such as the Listed Hocking Stuart Quality Stakes.

“If he comes up a little quicker we could follow a similar path to last year.

“Hopefully he gets qualified and into the Melbourne Cup which obviously is the grand final for him.

“It would be great to get him there. He’s a good horse and he has form around Americain.”
