Assail In Box Seat For 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes Win

March 15th, 2013

Assail looks set to continue her unbeaten run when she lines up for the 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes at Warwick Farm Racecourse tomorrow.

The filly has won both her previous two race starts and has earned more than $170,000 in prize money during her short career.

Assail will be looking to show her true ability as she makes her way towards the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 6, 2013.

Jockey Peter Robl is confident that Assail will do just that in tomorrow’s Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes.

“I would like Assail to step out and show everyone how good she really is,” Robl said.

“In an ideal world, she will win well and get herself into the Golden Slipper.”

Robl feels that trainer Clarry Conners has planned Assail’s autumn program well.

“Clarry has got a little idea about getting one ready for the Golden Slipper,” he said.

“He knows where Assail has to be in her preparation to be competitive for the Slipper and she seems to be going really well.”

No-matter tomorrow’s result, the jockey is full of praise for the Charge Forward filly and her blossoming career.

“I haven’t ridden a two-year-old so early in the season that showed her ability straight off the bat,” Robl said.

“Some just run, others have to learn to run but she has been brilliant from day one.”

Assail will be having her first run in the 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes since being a late scratching for the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic due to a hoof injury in January. is giving away a bonus bet worth up to $400 to lucky customers who sign up for an account today!
