The 2012 Canterbury Stakes is set to run at Rosehill racecourse this Saturday March 24, 2012 and here you will find the final field and barrier draw for the race.
Somepin Anypin is included in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes final field and barrier draw.
The four-year-old gelding finished second last start in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup behind Ofcourseican on March 10, 2012.
Somepin Anypin has won six of his 13 race starts and has earned more than $330,000 in prize money.
Trainer Gary Portelli is confident going into Saturday’s 2012 Canterbury Stakes that the gelding will be in top form.
“He worked very well this morning so I’m very happy,” Portelli said.
“I was able to give him a good gallop over 1200 metres this morning which should have him pretty spot-on for Saturday.
“Every furlong (200m) was exactly what I wanted this morning and he finished his work off strongly.”
Portelli understands that Somepin Anypin has a big task ahead of him if he wants to win the 2012 Canterbury Stakes, and feels More Joyous is the biggest threat to his chances.
“I think More Joyous is the quality weight-for-age horse in the race,” Portelli said.
“I would think she’s going to be the one just peeling out as they straighten and finding that acceleration that she’s got.
“It’s a top race. We haven’t earned our stripes at this level at weight-for-age yet but I’m just hoping he can step up.
“And if he does then look out come Doncaster Day when he drops to 52 kilograms.”
Somepin Anypin has drawn barrier 15 for the 2012 Canterbury Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Christian Reith.
Ilovethiscity, Monton, Eagle Falls and Sincero are also part of the 2012 Canterbury Stakes final field.
