The final field and barrier draw for the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes has been released, with the race set to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday March 17, 2012.
16 horses have accepted for the race, with Meidung being the first and only scratching from the field so far.
Included in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes final field and barrier draw is Kyria, who has drawn barrier six for the race.
Kyria will be having her final test for the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 7, 2012, in Saturday’s Sweet Embrace Stakes.
Trainer Grahame Begg said he was still not sure how to plan the remainder of her autumn campaign.
“I’m not too sure where she fits in at the moment,” Begg said.
“I’ve always thought she was more of a Sires’ Produce horse than a Slipper horse.
“Maybe she might be at her best as a three-year-old. Saturday is going to tell the story.”
Kyria has had two career race starts, finishing fifth in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes on debut before placing third in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes on March 3, 2012.
The Encosta De Lago filly has already won more than $20,000 in prize money and will be looking to add to that in her 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes start this weekend.
Dear Demi, Valerio and Jade Marauder are also included in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes final field and barrier draw.
