Race Preview – 2012 San Domenico Stakes

May 30th, 2012

The Group 3 San Domenico Stakes is set to take place at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday August 18, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,100 metres, the 2012 San Domenico Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money.

The 2012 San Domenico Stakes is open to three-year-olds only and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

The race is an important form guide for the remainder of the Spring Racing Carnival, with last year’s winner, Foxwedge, going on to win the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes and finish a close second in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

The 2012 San Domenico Stakes will likely to star some of Australia’s best two-year-olds of the autumn carnival.

Pierro is one possible runner in the 2012 San Domenico Stakes.

The Golden Slipper winning colt is currently unbeaten over six race starts and has earned just shy of $3 million in prize money.
