2011 Ranvet Stakes Nominations Released

March 15th, 2011

The 2011 Ranvet Stakes will take place on Rosehill Garden’s Myer Ladies Day this Saturday March 19, 2011, and nominations have now been released.

Worth $400,000, the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes will be run over 2,000 metres and is open to horses aged three-years-old and upwards.

16 horse have nominated for the 18 horse capacity starting field, including Maluckyday, who finished runner up in last year’s Melbourne Cup.

Maluckyday finished fourth last start in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes at Warwick Farm and will be ridden by jockey Larry Cassidy in the 2011 Ranvet Stakes, who also rode the four-year-old gelding last start and was more than pleased with his performance.

”I was rapt with the run, considering it was first-up over the mile,” Cassidy said of Maluckyday’s performance in the Chipping Norton Stakes.

”I was thrilled with what I saw, thrilled with how he felt when I jumped on board and thrilled with what he did.”

Odds for all 16 horses in the 2011 Ranvet Stakes will be available at Luxbet shortly.

Shaune Ritchie’s Keep The Peace is also nominated for the 2011 Ranvet Stakes after winning the Group 1 Haunui Farm Classic in New Zealand last start.

Keep The Peace’s trainer is hopeful that his horse is capable of coming up with the goods when she runs in the 2011 Ranvet Stakes this weekend.

“She’s being trained for 2000 metres, she’s been well looked after, her races have been spaced and she’s always been in top company,” Ritchie said.

“I think she’s ready.”

Zipping’s trainer Lloyd Williams has given his horse a 30% chance of competing in the 2011 Ranvet Stakes, after the nine-year-old gelding sustained an injury to his off-hind last week.

“He’s entered this week just in case the bruising which kept him out of the Australian Cup subsides in time (for the Ranvet Stakes),” trainer Lloyd Williams said.

Other 2011 Ranvet Stakes nominations include Chris Waller’s Hawk Island, Anthony Cumming’s Zavite and Gai Waterhouse’s Descarado.
