Angus Armanasco Stakes 2012 – Caulfield Race Preview

January 30th, 2012

The Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday February 25, 2012.

The 2012 Angus Armanasco Stakes is open to three-year-old fillies only and is worth $180,000 in prize money.

Run over a distance of 1,400 metres, the 2012 Angus Armanasco Stakes is run under set weight conditions.

The 2012 Angus Armanasco Stakes is run on Blue Diamond Stakes Day, and shares a program with the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes, Group 1 Futurity Stakes, Group 1 Oakleigh Plate, Group 2 Autumn Classic, Group 2 St George Stakes, Group 3 Mannerism Stakes and Listed Victoria Gold Cup.

Soft Sand is being targeted towards a start in the 2012 Angus Armanasco Stakes.

The three-year-old filly finished third last start at Caulfield on January 26, 2012, after being the odds on favourite to win the race.

Jockey Damien Oliver believes it was a run to forget and feels Soft Sand will continue to improve this campaign.

“She ran good. I think she ran home as good as anything. Get a few kilograms off and she will be hard to beat,” Oliver said.

Soft Sand won both her first two race starts last year and has now earned close to $60,000 in prize money.
