The Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes is scheduled to run at Randwick Racecourse on Saturday March 17, 2012.
The race will be run over a distance of 1,200 metres and will be run under set weight conditions.
The Sweet Embrace Stakes 2012 is worth a total of $125,000 in prize money and is open to two-year-old fillies only.
The race is an important lead-up race to the $3.5 million Golden Slipper 2012, which is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse on April 7, 2012.
The 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes is often the last stop for fillies that are looking to continue on to the Golden Slipper a fortnight later and has a large bearing on the betting markets for the race.
Last year’s winner of the Sweet Embrace Stakes was Gai Waterhouse’s Shared Reflections.
The Umatilla filly went on to finish a commendable sixth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper in her next start.
Shared Reflections has won two of her six race starts and has earned more than $185,000 in prize money.
Flying Snitzel is one of the juveniles that will be making an appearance in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
“Flying Snitzel will go to the Sweet Embrace Stakes next month and then we’ll see from there,” trainer Gerald Ryan said.
The Snitzel filly won her first start in the Australian Turf Club Maiden Handicap for two-year-olds in December last year, before posting a gallant third in the $250,000 Inglis Nursery in her next start.
Ryan will be hoping the young filly can demonstrate in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes that she is up to the task of contesting the 2012 Golden Slipper Stakes.
