The final field and barrier draw has been announced for the Group 2 Memsie Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday September 1, 2012.
15 horses have accepted for the 2012 Memsie Stakes, including Rekindled Interest.
The five-year-old gelding will be having the first start of his spring racing carnival in the 2012 Memsie Stakes.
Rekindled Interest has three starts during the autumn, with his best result being a close second in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes behind Metal Bender.
The Redoute’s Choice gelding’s owner and breeder, Jonathon Munz, is hopeful Rekindled Interest can come through with a win in the 2012 Memsie Stakes.
“It obviously depends on the track conditions, bias, tempo and final field, but he’s fit enough to run well even though it’s not his grand final,” Munz said.
“He was unlucky in last year’s Cox Plate and everyone knew that he should have won, but he still has to get there.
“Atlantic Jewel was going to win the Cox Plate but unfortunately she got injured.
“You do get attrition. Something that looks like it’s going to bolt in, a week later suddenly its chances are shot.
“You just have to be fit on the day.”
Rekindled Interest has won three of his 16 race starts and has earned more than $860,000 in prize money.
Luckygray, Sincero and Heart Of Dreams are also included in the 2012 Memsie Stakes final field and barrier draw.
