2012 McEwen Stakes Preview – Moonee Valley Racing

June 5th, 2012

The Group 3 McEwen Stakes is due to run at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Saturday September 15, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,000 metres, the 2012 McEwen Stakes is worth $150,000 in prize money.

The 2012 McEwen Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Buffering proved too good for his rivals when competing in last year’s McEwen Stakes, winning the race by a nose.

The four-year-old gelding finished fourth in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes in his next race start before placing second to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic later in the carnival, making the 2012 McEwen Stakes a key race to watch when betting on the spring carnival.

Buffering has won nine of his 25 race starts and has earned more than $1.43 million in prize money during his career.
