The Group 2 Furious Stakes will take place on Saturday September 3, 2011, at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.
The race is worth $175,000 in prize money and will be run over a distance of 1,400 metres.
Run under set-weight conditions, the 2011 Furious Stakes is open to three-year-old fillies only.
Three-year-old filly Florentina is set to compete in the 2011 Furious Stakes after finishing a close second to Pane In The Glass in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes last start.
The Redoute’s Choice filly originally suffered from a wind problem early in her career; however, this has been rectified.
“Florentina had a wind problem but she’s back in good order,” trainer David Payne said.
“She had to have an operation. She wasn’t gone in the wind but she had a flap that was closing her air.
“When she ran here on debut she moved up and then stopped.
“Then in the Black Opal when she came into the straight it looked like she just hit a brick wall and that’s when we had her scoped.”
Florentina is now back to her best and has proved she is up to competing against top guns of horse racing.
“She’s a good filly and she will improve with this run because she was first-up and had only had one trial,” Payne said.
“We’ll look at those fillies’ races (such as the Furious Stakes). That’s where she’ll be effective.”
