Thurlow No Certainty For Blue Diamond Stakes After Chairman’s Stakes

Promising juvenile Thurlow is no certainty to contest the 2015 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield on February 28 despite recording an impressive win in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (1000m) at Sandown on Saturday.

Thurlow was settled towards the tail …

The race is also known as the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes and attracts the best two year old fillies in work at the time.

Hosted at Flemington Racecourse the event is worth $150,000 and held under set weight and penalty conditions.

It has a prime spot on the calendar situated on Super Saturday, a day headlined by the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap with a total of seven group races on the card.

The Breeders Stakes for many of these horses will be the first time they race down the famed Flemington straight six.

It can catch plenty out and more than a few upsets have been recorded as a result of the straight track.

It can often be hard to get a read on the two year olds but anything coming out of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield is definitely one to keep an eye on.

That said the 2011 Breeders Stakes champion Triple Asset actually travelled up from Tasmania after winning their two year old Magic Millions race.

Previous winners of the Breeders Stakes include Crowned Glory in 2000, One World in 2004, Oval Affair in 2008 and My Emotion in 2009.
