Final Field For 2011 Fillies Classic

March 2nd, 2011

The final acceptances have been made for Friday nights Group 2 Fillies Classic of 1600m at Moonee Valley Racecourse.

Of the 15 originally nominated just eight will line up in the $200,000 race.

Four of those horses ran in the Mitty’s Vanity last start and all but one failed to make an impact.

Count Your Fingers came third in that race behind Do Ra Mi and Southern Speed so will likely be near the top of the betting markets for this race.

The highest rated horse in the field is the three-year-old filly Becerra.

A lot of these horses will be featuring throughout the Adelaide Racing Carnival so it’s a prime opportunity to run into some good form.

It’s also a great chance for these horses to repay their connections with such a small field standing between them and the $120,000 first prize.

There’s nothing standing between you and the money either thanks to Luxbet and their $400 free bet bonus offer.
