Silver Shadow Stakes 2011 Preview

July 20th, 2011

One of the first Group race showdowns held at the iconic Sydney Spring Racing Carnival for three-year-old fillies, the 2011 Silver Shadow Stakes is set to take place at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday August 20, 2011.

A Group 3 feature run over 1200 metres, the Silver Shadow Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money and is held at Warwick Farm’s sole spring carnival race meeting.

The headline race on the card for the day that Luxbet punters will be keen to have a bet on is the $175,000 Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Also running that day is the $125,000 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m), an open three-year-olds race.

A guide to which of the season’s three-year-old fillies will be in the 2011 Silver Shadow Stakes Final Field and which horse to bet on to win through Luxbet are the earlier carnival races including the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Randwick on August 6 or the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on August 13.

The Silver Shadow Stakes is also often used by trainers as the first-up Sydney Spring Carnival run for their resuming fillies, so keeping an eye on the previous season’s two-year-old races such as the Reisling Stakes (March) and Golden Slipper (April) can also be a good indicator.

Following the Silver Shadow Stakes Result, the best performing fillies are likely to head towards either the 2011 Flight Stakes or 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

The $400,000 Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) is a fillies-only feature running at Randwick on October 1 while the lucrative $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) is an open three-year-olds race held during the Melbourne Cup Carnival at the iconic Flemington Racecourse on Victoria Derby Day, October 29.

These races provide some of the season’s best betting opportunities, so kick off your spring punting season early and build on your bankroll before the 2012 Melbourne Cup rolls around by opening your Luxbet account today.

The 2011 Silver Shadow Stakes nominations will be taken on Monday August 15 followed by the release of weights the next day and then the final field of acceptances on Wednesday August 17.
