2011 Chelmsford Stakes Race Preview – Randwick Racing

August 22nd, 2011

The Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes will take place at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney on Saturday September 3, 2011.

The race will be run under weight-for-age conditions and over a distance of 1,600 metres.

Worth $175,000 in prize money, the 2011 Chelmsford Stakes will take place on the same day as the Group 2 Furious Stakes, Group 3 Tramway Quality Handicap and the Group 3 Concorde Stakes.

Peter Snowden’s Pinwheel is set to run in the 2011 Chelmsford Stakes after he won the Group 2 Warwick Stakes at Warwick Farm last Saturday.

“A no-frills horse,” Snowden said of Pinwheel after his latest race win.

”His toughness came out, that’s why he has the record he has.

“He has now won 10 races for us and winning over 1400m for the first time gives us options.

“We’ve always kept him to the shorter trips but now we’ll be able to look at a race like the Chelmsford Stakes.”

Con Karakatsanis’ Black Piranha is also expected to run in the 2011 Chelmsford Stakes.

“He’s still not right in the coat, there’s a fair bit of improvement there,” Karakatsanis said.

“He’s eight now and he’s looking for a mile (1600m) or further.

“That run will bring him on nicely.”
