Warwick Farm Race Preview – 2012 Warwick Stakes

May 31st, 2012

The Group 2 Warwick Stakes is due to take place at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday August 25, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,400 metres, the 2012 Warwick Stakes is worth $175,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Warwick Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Pinwheel won last year’s edition of the Warwick Stakes by almost two lengths.

The now six-year-old gelding went on to place fourth in the Group 2 Sebring Sprint and third in the Group 3 Betfair Sprint later in the spring carnival.

Pinwheel has won ten of his 31 race starts and has earned more than $850,000 in prize money.

The Lonhro gelding finished eighth in his most recent start in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben racecourse on May 26, 2012.

Pinwheel may well accept to defend his title and compete in the 2012 Warwick Stakes this August.
