The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 3 Concorde Stakes that is due to run at Warwick Farm Racecourse this Saturday September 3, 2011.
The Concorde Stakes 2011, which takes place as part of Chelmsford Stakes Day, was originally scheduled to take place at Randwick Racecourse.
However, the aging QEII stand was this morning declared unsafe and the venue for the race day was therefore changed to Warwick Farm.
10 horses have accepted for the 2011 Concorde Stakes final field, including Ron Quinton’s Monton.
In further horse racing news, Monton will be first-up in the Concorde Stakes after having a four and a half month-long spell over the winter months.
Quinton believes that the five-year-old gelding is in with a chance for Saturday’s 1,100 metre sprint at Warwick Farm.
“He’s a fresh horse, no question,” Quinton said.
“I’m happy with him, he’s had a nice trial and did a nice piece of work this morning.
“He’s well enough to run well if he’s good enough.”
This will be the first time Monton runs under the guidance of his new trainer, after spending the first part of his career being trained by Tim Martin at Rosehill.
Quinton will decide on where to next send Monton after his 2011 Concorde Stakes run.
“We’ll be guided by Saturday but he can’t run in much less than this because he’s a pretty high-rated horse,” Quinton said.
“He’s got to run in Group Twos or Group Threes.”
The Concorde Stakes 2011 final field also includes Decision Time, Motspur, Zaratone and Master Of Design.
