The 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes will light up Flemington Racecourse this weekend on what will be the biggest day of racing since the resumption of the new season.
All up there are four group races on the card at Caulfield as well as a further four in New South Wales on the same day.
Spring racing is well and truly back and the 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes are a significant part of that.
The race itself is contested across a 1400m trip with $200,000 in prize money on offer.
It’s Group 2 rated and only proven mares are eligible to enter.
As it stands there are 21 horses still in the running for the final 16 positions in the race with final acceptances due tomorrow.
Among the nominations are a few runners of note including Brazilian Pulse, Do Ra Mi, Pinker Pinker and Parables.
For any mares looking towards a life at stud this is a hugely important race to win, not forgetting it also sets them up for big things on track for the rest of the spring as well.
