Up And Coming Stakes 2012 – Race Preview

May 31st, 2012

The Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes is due to take place at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday August 25, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,300 metres, the 2012 Up And Coming Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Up And Coming Stakes is open to three-year-old horses only and is run under quality handicap conditions.

Horses that demonstrated themselves to be handy two-year-olds during the previous autumn carnival will often run in the 2012 Up And Coming Stakes.

Horses such as All Too Hard and Pierro are likely contenders in the 2012 Up And Coming Stakes after their impressive autumn campaigns.

Last year’s Up And Coming Stakes was won by Manawanui who went on to win some of the biggest races of the spring, such as the $1 million Golden Rose and the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes.

Manawanui has won six of his 12 race starts and has earned more than $1.32 million in prize money.
