Taking place this Saturday is the Randwick Guineas Day – considered to be one of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s most prestigious racedays, and this year, it hosts eight exciting races.
One of which will be the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes which will see 11 fillies compete over 1,200 metres to stake a claim in the $125,000 prize purse.
Kicking off at around 3.30pm at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, the Sweet Embrace Stakes will be the fifth race to run, and Crystal Lily is dominating the odds at $2.80.
The Sweet Embrace Stakes will be the fifth race to run, and Crystal Lily is dominating the odds at $2.80.
The two-year-old will start from the fifth barrier, and after winning the Listed Chairman Stakes (1100m), Crystal Lily is certainly proving herself as the horse to beat.
Ambers Waltz and Zutara are two strong contenders for the Sweet Embrace Stakes at $4.60 and $4.80 respectively. John O’Shea-trained Ambers Waltz has had a string of second spot finishes recently, and will look to the Sweet Embrace Stakes to alter her record.
Divorces, who drew the wide 10th barrier is also another horse to watch, and starts at $5.
Rounding off the odds for the Sweet Embrace Stakes is Daily Flyer at $151. Trained by Anthony Cummings, the Group 3 race will be the filly’s third start, and if she finds strong form would certainly provide an incredibly lucrative payout.
Also taking place on Saturday at the Royal Randwick Racecourse will be the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m), the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m), the Group 3 Randwick City Stakes (2000m) and the Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m).
