Assail Heads Towards 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes – Preview

March 6th, 2013

The Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes is due to run at Royal Randwick racecourse on Saturday March 16, 2013.

Run on the same day as the Group 1 Randwick Guineas and the Group 3 Skyline Stakes, the 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes is a key lead-up race to the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 6, 2013.

The 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money and is run under set weight conditions.

Assail has her sights set on the 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes after winning her two previous race starts.

Trainer Clarry Conners was over the moon with Assail’s recovery since being scratched from the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic with a hoof injury in January.

She then went on to win her barrier trail at Rosehill yesterday by an impressive two and a half lengths.

“That’s a great relief,” Conners said.

“I was really nervous today.

“She’s an outstanding filly and looks to have come through this trial well.

“She’s been in the stable the whole time. We couldn’t put her out because we had to look after her foot.

“She’s very much like (one of his previous Slipper winners) Burst. There isn’t much to her, but she’s a real goer – very tough.”

Assail will be looking to add to her current prize money of $170,000 when she runs in the 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
