2010 W H Stocks Stakes Nominations Include Horse of the Year Typhoon Tracy

September 7th, 2010

This Saturday Moonee Valley Racecourse is set to host a bumper day of spring racing with the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes Day.

Three Group races highlight the meeting’s programme including the $200,000 Group 2 W H Stocks Stakes (1600m) which has attracted 26 nominations.

A mares-only weight-for-age showdown, the 2010 W H Stocks Stakes will be contested by a final field of classy females with early favourites in the odds including Typhoon Tracy, Ghostmilk and Faint Perfume.

Recently crowned the 2009-10 Australian Horse of the Year, the Peter Moody-trained Typhoon Tracy has also been nominated for the other headline event of the day, the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and could be missing from the W H Stocks final field.

Typhoon Tracy’s stablemate Ghostmilk is also nominated for the Stocks Stakes, the consistent seven-year-old sure to be at the top of the betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au after winning last start over 1519m at Moonee Valley before which she finished a strong second in the Winter Stakes.

Heading towards the 2010 Melbourne Cup, Bart Cummings Faint Perfume is another top fancy in the W H Stocks Stakes, the Group 1 winning mare having placed eighth first-up this spring in the Memsie Stakes.

Other mares nominated for the W H Stocks Stakes include Lets Elope Stakes fourth placegetter Lady Lynette, Cockram Stakes winner Rhythm In Paris who failed to place in the Lets Elope and Tony Vasil’s Crown Oaks runner-up Valdemoro.

The 2010 W H Stocks Stakes final field of acceptances will be released later in the week and published right here along with up-to-date odds from Ladbrokes.com.au so bookmark this page.
