Premier’s Cup 2012 – Doomben Race Preview

May 15th, 2012

The Group 3 Premier’s Cup is due to run at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday May 26, 2012.

Run over a distance of 2,200 metres, the 2012 Premier’s Cup is worth $125,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Premier’s Cup is run under handicap conditions and is open to horses aged three-years-old and upwards.

Run on Doomben 10,000 Day, the 2012 Premier’s Cup shares its program with the Group 1 Doomben 10,000, Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes, Listed Chief De Beers Quality and Listed The Phoenix.

A probable contender in the 2012 Premier’s Cup is Hume, after he won the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap last Saturday.

The Zabeel gelding won his most recent start by almost a length after an almost three year losing streak.

Hume has won seven of his 32 race starts and has earned close to $400,000 in prize money.

Ironstein is also likely to compete in the 2012 Premier’s Cup after placing second in the Chairman’s Handicap last start.

The six-year-old gelding has won eight of his 38 race starts and has earned more than $720,000 in prize money.

Ironstein will be looking to post his first win in the 2012 Premier’s Cup since winning the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes last November.

Other possible 2012 Premier’s Cup contenders include Spechenka, Fantastic Blue and Six O’Clock News.
