The $175,000 Stan Fox Stakes is just two days away. The Group 2 Randwick race will be held this Saturday, September 25 as part of a full day of top spring racing. The final field for the 2010 Stan Fox Stakes has been announced, and eight emerging stars will be contesting the upcoming event.
The David Payne-trained Masquerader ($2.20) is leading the field as the odds on favourite to win. Despite the disappointing run the three-year-old colt had in the Golden Rose (1400m), plenty of experts and punters are backing this horse after some stunning performances during training throughout the week. The son of Lucky Owners will be jumping from the coveted barrier number one with jockey Weichong Marwing aboard.
Masquerader will have to overcome some tough competition mainly coming from the Clarry Conners-trained Decision Time ($3.00). This three-year-old gelding has been in top form in recent outings, including a win in the recent Heritage Stakes (1200m). The son of Foreplay also out performed his Stan Fox Stakes rival Masquerader in the Golden Rose. With Conners hoping to pursue Group 1 glory this spring, Decision Time will need to prove he’s worthy in this 2010 Stan Fox Stakes. He’ll be jumping from barrier number five with jockey Craig Williams.
Other runners to watch include the Gai Waterhouse-trained Halekulani ($6.00) and the Mark de Montfort-trained From The Vault ($8.50). The former will be jumping from barrier number three with Nash Rawiller in the saddle. The latter will be in barrier number two with jockey Glyn Shofield.
