The Goodwood final field & barrier draw
A field of 15 has been declared for Saturday’s Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville following the barrier draw on Tuesday.
2018 The Goodwood winner Santa Ana Lane has been allocated top weight of 59kg and has drawn wide in gate 10 for jockey Damien Thornton.
Santa Ana Lane carried 58.5kg to victory in 2018 following a 3rd placing in the DC McKay Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville.
In 2020, the Anthony Freedman-prepared sprinter comes off 6th placing in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick where he finished 3.5 lengths from Tofane.
Freedman also saddles up Lyre who charged home for 2nd placing in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville behind Bella Vella.
Impressive RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) winner Gytrash has drawn wide in barrier 12 for local trainer Gordon Richards who also saddles up Bold Star from the more favourable gate 4.
Tony and Calvin McEvoy are the only other trainers with two runners in the race, and they’ll be looking for stable star Sunlight to bounce back from a disappointing last placing in the Sangster.
Their other runner, Xilong, narrowly held on to score in the Euclase Stakes (1200m) which was run in near identical time to The Goodwood.
