The final field and barrier draw has been announced for the Group 2 Challenge Stakes, which is due to take place at Warwick Farm Racecourse this Saturday March 16, 2013.
A total of 12 horses have accepted for a run in the $175,000 Challenge Stakes this weekend.
Included in the 2013 Challenge Stakes final field and barrier draw is Hay List.
Hay List is resuming this autumn after spending almost 12 months away from racing, with his most recent result being a second placing in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes behind Fox Wedge on March last year.
The seven-year-old has won 15 of his 23 race starts and has earned more than $2.54 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
Hay List has drawn barrier two for the 2013 Challenge Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Glyn Schofield in the race.
Also included in the 2013 Challenge Stakes final field and barrier draw is Snitzerland.
Snitzerland has won six of her 11 race starts and has earned more than $1.35 million in prize money so far.
The Golden Slipper runner-up from last year will be looking to begin her autumn racing carnival on a high when she runs in the 2013 Challenge Stakes.
Trainer Gerald Ryan is confident Snitzerland can win the Challenge Stakes and is undeterred by Hay List’s presence in the race.
“I’m not going to run away from any horse,” Ryan said.
“Three-year-old fillies don’t get the same advantage at weight for age as they do in the autumn but Snitzerland has never run a bad race and she’ll be right there.”
Snitzerland has drawn barrier nine for the 2013 Challenge Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Corey Brown.
Temple Of Boom and Mrs Onassis are also included in the 2013 Challenge Stakes final field and barrier draw.
