Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes 2012 – Race Preview

June 20th, 2012

The Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 13, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the 2012 Thoroughbred Club Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Thoroughbred Club Stakes is open to three-year-old fillies and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

Run as part of Caulfield Guineas Day, the 2012 Thoroughbred Club Stakes shares its day with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Caulfield Stakes, Group 1 Toorak Handicap, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, and Group 2 Schillaci Stakes.

The race was won in 2011 by Platelet, who posted a 0.8 length victory over The Fairy’s Kiss and Hollyweird.

Platelet had finished second in the Group 3 Champagne Stakes in her previous race start, making it a fantastic form guide for the 2012 Thoroughbred Club Stakes.

Current impressive two-year-olds, such as Snitzerland, would be perfectly suited for the 2012 Thoroughbred Club Stakes.
