Top fancy Pariah has drawn the outside barrier in the ten horse field for the Group 3 $150,000 TPG Telecom San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday.
The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Pariah is resuming for the Spring and will be having his first run back since finishing eleventh to She Will Reign in the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 18.
Despite his poor showing in the Golden Slipper, the Redoute’s Choice colt did prove that he was one of the top rated two year olds with a fighting second to Catchy in the Group 1 $1.5m Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield at his previous start.
Team Snowden has given Pariah two barrier trials at Randwick for his return to the race track for a win over 740m for Kerrin McEvoy and a second to Winx over 1000m for Blake Shinn.
Shinn gets the call up again for Pariah in the San Domenico Stakes while Hugh Bowman will ride stablemate Taking Aim who has drawn barrier seven.
Taking Aim is also resuming for the Spring Carnival and will be having his first run since being Group 1 placed when third behind Capital Gain and Aloisia in the $600,000 BMW J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Doomben during the Brisbane Winter Carnival.
The Lindsay Park Team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig have accepted with Tulip and Madeenaty for the San Domenico Stakes but only one filly will run with both also listed in the final field for the $120,000 Johnnie Walker Plate (1200m) at The Valley on Saturday.
“We’ll have a look at the fields and make a decision then,” David Hayes said.
“When it’s time to head off on Thursday, one will turn left and one will turn right and head to either our Flemington stable or to our Randwick stable.”
Corey Brown has his name listed alongside both fillies in the San Domenico Stakes with Tulip drawing the rails and Madeenaty also drawing in close at gate three.
Magic Millions 2yo Classic placegetter Chauffeur, formerly trained by Gerald Ryan, will be having his first start for Team Hawkes and will jump from gate eight with Brendon Avdulla in the saddle.
The James Cummings trained Jorda will be making her long awaited return to the race track and has drawn nicely at barrier two with Glyn Schofield booked to ride.
Jorda was the winner of her only race day appearance in the first two year old race of the season when she looked impressive in scoring in the Listed $150,000 Keeneland Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) at Randwick on October 1 last year.
