While the action in metropolitan Sydney and Melbourne may be hotting up, horse racing fans and punters should not forget about the upcoming Spring Stakes at Newcastle.
Scheduled to jump on September 15 at the Broadmeadow Racecourse, the Spring Stakes is an exciting event for three-year-olds at set weights. So if you want to work out where’s best to place your punt then head to Ladbrokes.com.au now!
Taking place over 1600 metres, the Newcastle Spring Stakes offers a prize purse of $175,000 to the successful runners.
One emerging three-year-old looking to use the Newcastle Spring Stakes as a stepping stone this spring is Levi’s Choice. The Galileo colt had a solid Winter campaign with notable achievements including a second-place finish in the Group Two QTC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm.
The 2010 Newcastle Spring Stakes is lining up to be the three-year-olds second proper jump after the Listed Ming Dynasty (1400m) on September 4 – so keep an eye on that one at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Trained by John Thompson, Levi’s Choice is being targeted for the $300,000 Group One Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) on October 2 at Randwick.
Thompson has nominated the three-year-old for the 2010 Caulfield Guineas on October 9, but that will depend on how well the colt runs in his lead up races.
So if you are looking to get in on the action down on the tracks this spring, make sure you sign up with Ladbrokes.com.au in order to get the most out of the racing!
