Nominations Preview – Will Parables Win The 2010 Furious Stakes?

August 31st, 2010

This Saturday, Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse will be host to the Spring Carnival action which will feature the illustrious $150,000 Group Two Furious Stakes (1400m).

Twelve three-year-old fillies have been nominated for the 2010 Furious Stakes, with the entrants list reading like the who’s who of classy Australian females.

So if you think you can pick a winner, make sure you head to so you can make the most of the early market odds when they’re released.

One sure to be a favourite among punters at is the Silver Shadow Stakes winner Parables. Trained by Peter Snowden, Parables powered home the win against the odds and defeated the 12-horse field with a gallant display.

Gai Waterhouse’s More Strawberries is another 2010 Furious Stakes nominee and finished fourth in the Silver Shadow Stakes. The More Than Ready filly has had five career jumps, but is still searching for her maiden win.

Peter Snowden-trained Divorces will use the 2010 Furious Stakes as her first-up jump this spring. The Domesday filly has had two solid barrier trials over the past few weeks, with her last serious start resulting in an impressive third place in the Group One Champagne Stakes (1600m) in April.

Also taking place at Randwick this weekend will be the headlining Group Two Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), the Group Three Tramway Quality Handicap (1400m) and six other races.
