2011 Up And Coming Stakes – Final Field & Barrier Draw

August 18th, 2011

The Up And Coming Stakes is due to run at Warwick Farm Racecourse this Saturday August 20, 2011, and here you will find the final field and barrier draw for the race.

Included in the Up And Coming Stakes final field is Paul Messara’s Rekindled Alliance, who won his debut start at Canterbury by almost a length last Wednesday.

Messara was surprised when Rekindled Interest won his debut start with such ease.

“(His last win) was a big surprise,” Messara said.

“He is not a flashy track worker because he is a very relaxed horse.

“His trials were nice but they weren’t anything like his first up run.

“We don’t ask him to do a lot, he is a horse that only does what is asked of him so when Corey pressed the button he hit the line with far more acceleration than I was expecting.”

Messara now believes Rekindled Interest is on track to compete in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes, which is held on the final day of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival horse racing calendar.

“I have had racing like the Spring Champion Stakes in the back of my head all along, up to a mile than then beyond would be his optimum but as he showed the other day he can spring as well,” Messara said.

“I think he can (win on Saturday), I haven’t tested him with 10 day back-ups but he is a horse than can obviously sprint well so it is matter of the track.”

However, Messara’s plans could be foiled if Warwick Farm Racecourse does not improve from its current rating of a Heavy 8 after heavy rain fell on the suburb.

“Horses having the first run on a wet track is a big question mark so I will have to take that into consideration and see how the track looks tomorrow,” he said.

Rekindled Interest is due to jump from barrier nine and will be ridden by jockey Corey Brown in Saturday’s Up And Coming Stakes.

Also included in the 2011 Up And Coming Stakes final field is David Payne’s Queenian and Tony Sergi’s Diamond To Pegasus.
