It was shown that just nine horses have accepted for the 2011 Hyperion Stakes that will take place at Belmont Racecourse this Saturday June 25, 2011, when the final field and barrier draw for the race was released earlier today.
The Group 3 Hyperion Stakes will run as Race 6 this Saturday and is due to jump at 3.15pm (AWST).
Worth $125,000, the 2011 Hyperion Stakes will be run under standard weight-for-age conditions.
Included in the 2011 Hyperion Stakes final field is WA Oaks winner Impressive Jeuney.
The Hyperion Stakes will be the first of four prestigious races the four-year-old mare will compete in in the hope of increasing her broodmare value.
“Impressive Jeuney is set to tackle Saturday’s Hyperion and the Strickland Stakes at Belmont two weeks later,” the mare’s trainer, Darren McAuliffe, said.
“Then we’ll aim at Kalgoorlie.
“She was scratched from the Belmont Sprint only because 1400m would have been too short for her.”
Impressive Jeuney will jump from barrier eight in the Hyperion Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Shaun O’Donnell.
Also included in the 2011 Hyperion Stakes final field is the Ian Glading-trained King Kool Kat.
King Kool Kat’s trainer and connections will be hoping for a wet track for their talented seven-year-old.
“His defeats have generally been on firm tracks,” Glading said.
“The course was rated good on Belmont Sprint day.
“Rain is forecast for Friday and Saturday, which is just what we wanted.
“King Kool Kat has tender hooves and a soft course would be made to order for him.”
King Kool Kat will be ridden by apprentice jockey Duncan Miller and will jump from the inside gate in the 2011 Hyperion Stakes.
Also amongst the 2011 Hyperion Stakes final field are Fred Kersley’s Grand Nirvana and Neville Parnham’s God Has Spoken.
