How Now Stakes 2012 – Final Field & Barrier Draw

September 19th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 How Now Stakes, which is due to run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday September 22, 2012.

A full field of 16 horses plus two emergencies have accepted for a run in the race, including Mosheen.

Mosheen will be looking to get her spring racing carnival back on track after finished 13th in the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington on September 8.

The Fastnet Rock mare has won seven of her 15 race starts and has earned more than $2.63 million in prize money.

Mosheen won four of her five race starts during the autumn racing carnival, with her only second coming when defeated a nose in the Group 3 The Vanity by Shopaholic.

She won the Group 1 Australian Guineas, Group 1 Randwick Guineas, and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes during the autumn and will be out to recreate those events in the 2012 How Now Stakes.

Mosheen has drawn barrier four for the 2012 How Now Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Nicholas Hall.

Curtana is also included in the 2012 How Now Stakes final field and barrier draw.

The five-year-old has won six of her 20 race starts and earned more than $550,000 in prize money.

Her most recent win came in the Listed The Straight Six at Flemington on May 19, 2012, and she will be first-up in the 2012 How Now Stakes.
