May 31st, 2012

The Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes is set to take place at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday August 25, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the 2012 Silver Shadow Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Up And Coming Stakes is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

Fillies such as Samaready,No Looking Back, and Driefontein would be perfectly suited to a run in the 2012 Silver Shadow Stakes.

The pair have demonstrated their ability to perform as two-year-olds and will be out to prove themselves as spring quality three-year-olds.

Samaready won the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Group 2 Reisling Stakes during the autumn, before finishing third to Pierro and Snitzerland in the Group 1 Golden Slipper.

The More Than Ready filly has won four of her five race starts and has earned more than $1.2 million in prize money during her short career.
