Today’s barrier draw for the Group 3 $125,000 XXXX Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) will determine if Sydney filly Faraway Town heads to the Sunshine Coast on Saturday or stays home.

Warwick Farm trainer Matthew Smith has also nominated Faraway Town for a 3yo BenchMark 76 Handicap over 1500m at Rosehill on Saturday but will head to Queensland if the filly draws well in what will be a capacity field of eighteen.

“Where she runs all depends on the barriers on Wednesday,” Smith told AAP.

“If she draws well in the Guineas she will go to the Sunshine Coast. If it’s a bad draw she will go to Rosehill.”

Faraway Town is the winner of one race from fourteen starts during her two year old season but her best effort was a third behind Yankee Rose and Telperion in the Group 1 $1m Inglis Sires’ (1400m) at Randwick during the 2016 Sydney Autumn Carnival.

At her next start the Not A Single Doubt filly ran fourth to Prized Icon in the Group 1 $500,000 Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.

A 2017 Sydney Autumn Carnival campaign saw Faraway Town finish second to Invincible Gem in the Group 3 $150,000 Trainer Connections Spring Stakes (1600m) at Randwick followed by a third behind Dawn Wall and Lubiton in the Group 3 $200,000 Arrowfield Kembla Grange Classic (1600m) at Kembla Grange on March 10.

Smith has given Faraway Town two runs this time in for two fourths at Rosehill in a 1200m 3yo BenchMark 78 Handicap on June 3 and in a 1400m 3yo BenchMark 73 Handicap on June 17.

From her one win and six minor placings, Faraway Town has accumulated $364,450 in prizemoney for her connections.

    It’s difficult to find well-informed people about this topic, however,
    you seem like you know what you’re talking about!

  2. modern cars

    I think that everything published made a great deal of sense.
    But, think on this, suppose you were to create a awesome title?

    I ain’t saying your information is not good, however suppose you added a headline that
    grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Barrier draw to decide
    if Faraway Town runs in Sunshine Coast Guineas – HorseRacing.com.au is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news
    headlines to get people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
