2011 Winterbottom Stakes – Barrier Draw Released

November 16th, 2011

The barrier draw for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes has been released, with the race due to run at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday November 19, 2011.

Ortensia, who is chasing her first Group 1 victory in the 2011 Winterbottom Stakes, has drawn perfectly in barrier 2.

Trainer Paul Messara is confident of Ortensia’s chances in the Winterbottom Stakes 2011 after her dominant first-up victory in the Listed Mumm Stakes.

“She’s won the race before, has the same jockey (Craig Williams) and let’s hope she can do it again,” Messara said.

“She travelled well, better than most of the others.

“She’s quite a seasoned veteran in terms of travel, having been to Hong Kong, Brisbane and Melbourne.”

Peter Snowden’s Winterbottom Stakes 2011 hopeful, Rarefied, drew barrier 7 for the race.

“He’ll be a big improver on Saturday,” Snowden said of Rarefied.

“He’s got some issues but we’ve finally got him right.

“The draw wasn’t important. He can race either way (back or forward) and ideally he would be midfield.

“I love the track and think it will suit him.”

Elliotto drew the inside barrier in the 2011 Winterbottom Stakes, while Elusive Touch drew the widest barrier of 14.
