The final field for the Group 1 SA Derby has been released ahead of the race that will run this Sunday May 8, 2011.
The 2011 SA Derby is a set-weights race open to three-year-old horses only and is worth $350,000 in prize money.
Run over a distance of 2,500 metres, the 2011 SA Derby will run as Race 6 at 3.17pm at Morphettville Racecourse this Sunday.
17 horses have accepted for the 16 entry capacity horse racing field, including current favourite Right Of Refusal.
Right Of Refusal is currently the $3.70 favourite to win the 2011 SA Derby at Luxbet.
The three-year-old gelding has not finished worse than second in his last four races and won his last start in the Listed VRC St. Leger at Flemington Racecourse on April 25, 2011.
The Refuse To Bend gelding has already won more than $171,000 during his career and has won three of his ten race starts.
Right Of Refusal will be ridden by jockey Michael Walker in the 2011 SA Derby and will jump from barrier seven.
Also included in the 2011 SA Derby acceptances is Peter Snowden’s Backgammon, who is paying odds of $5.50 to win at Luxbet.
Backgammon finished second by half a head to Kittens in the Group 3 Chairman’s Tattsbet Stakes last starts and has placed in both of his attempts at Stakes level this preparation.
The three-year-old Domesday gelding has won over $186,000 in prize money and has won two of his 12 career starts.
Backgammon will jump from gate three in the 2011 SA Derby and will be ridden by jockey Mark Zahra.
Kittens has also accepted for the 2011 SA Derby, drawing the wide barrier of 16 for the race.
Kittens, who beat Backgammon to win the recent Chairman’s Tattsbet Stakes, will be looking to regain her Spring carnival form that saw her finish fourth against some of the best company in the Group 1 Crown Oaks.
The Redoute’s Choice filly will face off against the boys in the 2011 SA Derby and is currently paying odds of $8 to win the race at Luxbet.
Also included in the 2011 SA Derby final field is Anthony Cummings’ Shadows In The Sun, John Thompson’s Jeter and Mick Price’s Echoes Of Heaven.
