McEwen Stakes 2011 Race Preview – Moonee Valley Racing

August 24th, 2011

The Group 3 McEwen Stakes is set to take place at Moonee Valley in Melbourne on Saturday September 10, 2011.

Run over a distance of 1,000 metres, the 2011 McEwen Stakes will be run on the same day as both the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes and the Group 2 WH Stock Stakes.

The 2011 McEwen Stakes is worth $150,000 in prize money and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Peter Moody will be giving his talented four-year-old mare Kulgrinda her first taste of Group competition in the 2011 McEwen Stakes.

Kulgrinda has won four of her six race starts, including both her runs this preparation.

“We just had to wait for her to mature up,” Moody said.

“But for probably a little bit of impatience where I pushed on too far into her first preparation she would have been undefeated.”

The trainer is planning to use the 2011 McEwen Stakes as a lead-up race into some of the best spring carnival feature races in Melbourne.

“She is a Group One horse and you’ve got to go to Group one races,” Moody said.

“She is on the road to a very good spring.”
