Field

The Sweet Embrace Stakes field features some decent quality sprinters, largely from local stables but often also from interstate and sometime New Zealand. As a Group 3 event, the quality of the Sweet Embrace Stakes field is quite high, but doesn’t reach the levels of the higher status events held on the same programme.

2017 Sweet Embrace Stakes Field

There are expectations that the 2017 Sweet Embrace Stakes field will outshine that of previous editions of the race. Changes to the racing programmes in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland mean that trainers will be reassessing the paths they take with their more talented gallopers. As a result, the Sweet Embrace Stakes field may well include a slightly classier selection of sprinters than usual, as trainers seek to get them into their autumn campaigns earlier in the year than usual.

The 2017 Sweet Embrace Stakes field is provided below.
