Barakey Wins 2012 Winterbottom Stakes – Ascot Results

November 26th, 2012

Barakey has won the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes, which took place at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday November 24, 2012.

The five-year-old won the race by half a length ahead of Power Princess, who finished second, and Spirit Of Boom, who ran home for third.

Barakey has now won all 11 of his race starts and has earned more than $650,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Key Business gelding was paying odds of $2.70 to win the 2012 Winterbottom Stakes at

Trainer Jim Taylor was thrilled to have won the 2012 Winterbottom Stakes with his stable star Barakey.

“It was a big effort to win as all the other feature races (on the day) were won by horses who had cover and those that didn’t knocked up,” he said.

“No horses did it harder on the day than Travinator, who knocked up, and Barakey.”

Travinator, who was second favourite for the 2012 Winterbottom Stakes, could not sustain the early pace that he and Barakey had set and fell back to finish in last place.

Barakey will now travel to Sydney and Melbourne to contest the autumn racing carnival in 2013.

“We won’t go silly next year with him,” Taylor said.

“He’s a five-year-old and had a couple of leg issues, so we don’t want to over-race him.

“Most of my good sprinters have raced until they were eight or nine as they haven’t been pushed.”
