Winterbottom Stakes Final Field: State Solicitor heads 13-strong line-up

  • Intriguing sprint in store
  • Six locals come through Colonel Reeves Stakes
  • Santa Ana Lane, Viddora and Fuhryk head west

The final field has been declared for Saturday’s Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot where 13 sprinters will compete for $1 million in prizemoney.

Top local hoop William Pike will partner the Grant and Alana Williams-trained State Solicitor who is aiming for three in a row this campaign following a narrow victory in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) last fortnight.

Colonel Reeves runner-up Caipirinha will also contest Saturday’s feature as will Durendal (3rd), Profit Street (4th), Dainty Tess (5th) and Whispering Brooke (6th). 

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) winner Santa Ana Lane has been given a 62-day break and leads a host of talented gallopers aiming to take the rich Perth prizemoney back to the east.

Trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig have also sent Fuhryk west while South Australian speedster Viddora will also line up for Lloyd Kennewell following a 2nd placing in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) and an unlucky 4th in the Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.
