Winterbottom Stakes 2013 – Final Field Announced

November 19th, 2013

The final field has been announced for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes, which is scheduled to run at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday November 23, 2013.

A total of 13 horses have accepted for a run in the race, including Barakey.

Barakey has won 12 of his 13 race starts and has earned more than $735,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The six-year-old’s only defeat came when placing 11th of 13 in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap in his only Melbourne race start.

He was found to be lame after the race and promptly travelled back to his tried and tested home base of Perth.

Barakey’s most recent run resulted in a win in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes at Ascot on October 26.

Also included in the 2013 Winterbottom Stakes final field is Buffering.

Buffering has won 14 of his 37 race starts and has earned more than $3.66 million in prize money during his career.

The six-year-old was always known for his inability to win a Group 1 race, despite placing at the top level on numerous occasions.
