The Sydney Spring Racing Carnival is almost upon us and as anticipation begins to grow among fans and punters alike the 2010 San Domenico Stakes jump is just around the corner and speculation is rife.
Several youngsters have been tipped to jump with one being the impressive Solar Charged.
Taking place at the prestigious Royal Randwick Racecourse, the San Domenico Stakes is a Group Three event over 1,000 metres for three-year-olds, and often draws top fields fresh from a spell.
Usually resulting in the best runner claiming the win due to the set weights with penalties conditions, the winner also receives the biggest share in the $125,000 purse often moving on to impressive things in the spring.
With the San Domenico Stakes touted as such a great indicator event for the spring, several youngsters have been tipped to jump with one being the impressive Solar Charged.
Just two weeks out from the jump and the upcoming John O’Shea-trained filly devastated her field in a 900 metre trail run at Randwick on Tuesda, defeating second placed Darya Ye Noor by a massive seven-and-a-half length win proving herself as a strong sprinter.
Also targeting a jump on the 7th of August in the San Domenico is the unbeaten colt Masquerader who won his trial by a length with apprentice hoop Nathan Berry in the saddle.
Champion trainer Gai Waterhouse is looking to start Brightexpectations in the 2010 San Domenico Stakes as a lead up to the ultimate spring target the Group One Golden Rose (1400m) on the 28th of August.
The colt won the Group Two Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) earlier in the year and would be a very strong contender for the San Domenico after some impressive trials at Randwick recently.
