Field & Barriers – 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies)

February 8th, 2012

Malasun’s hopes of securing the $1 million bonus for winning all three legs of the Blue Diamond is still alive after 12 horses accepted to be part of the 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 11, 2012.

The Red Ransom filly won her first career start in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) on January 26, 2012, and trainer Mick Price is hoping she can back it up with another win this Saturday.

Malasun has drawn barrier two for the 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) and will be ridden by jockey Damien Oliver in the race.

However Price is favouring fellow 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) contender Samaready to win the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes on February 25, 2012.

Samaready won her first start at Flemington by 1.3 lengths on December 17 last year.

“Samaready is flying,” Price said.

“The thing about her is not to just judge her on what she did at Flemington.

“She was on the way down at Flemington. She was lying down all week and I did nothing with her, freshened her up and she went out and was really strong at the end of the race.

“She’s had a little break, did really well and I think she’s improved a lot.

“Look, I might be wrong but I have a slight leaning to her.”

Samaready has drawn barrier 10 for the 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) and will be ridden by jockey Craig Newitt.

Mick Price has also entered Tuscan Haze in the 2012 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) final field an barrier draw.
