Betting and odds have been released for the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes, which is due to run at Royal Randwick racecourse this Saturday March 17, 2012.
Kuchinskaya is presently favourite to win the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes at bookmaker.com.au and is paying odds of $3.50 to win the race.
The two-year-old filly won her last start in a $70,000 handicap at Rosheill last month and will be looking to repeat the performance in Saturday’s 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
Jade Marauder is currently on the second line of betting at bookmaker.com.au paying $4.40, while Flying Snitzel is third favourite at $7.
Bethlehem is presently one of the least backed runners in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes betting and is paying $31 to win the race at bookmaker.com.au.
Despite her long odds, trainer Wayne Webster believes she is in with a chance.
“She’s a bit of an unknown to be honest,” Webster said.
“Her first-up run was encouraging. Brad Pengelly rode her and he was impressed by the way she hit the line.
“He actually said to me that if she’d drawn a gate or if it had been 1200 metres she probably would have won.”
The More Than Ready filly finishes fourth in the race and will be stepping up sharply in grade for the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
“She is still a preparation away, mentally and physically, but she is sound and well and we’re looking forward to stepping her up to the extra distance,” he said.
“She’s shown us enough to be there on Saturday.
“If you’re ever going to throw them in the deep end you do it when they’re two. Anything can happen.”
