Full field for SFA Trial Stakes

By The Guru

A FULL field of 16 Trinidad and Tobago-bred three-year-old maidens were entered for the 1,350-metre First Citizens Stud Farm Association Trial Stakes to face starter Carlton Ramsaroop on New Year's Day, opening day of the 2013 racing season at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.

Heidi's Ztippi, who finished second to She's A Cutie in the St Ann's Stakes, and Salome, who was third in the same race on Boxing Day, and unplaced Settle D Score--whose jockey Hugo Sanchez fell at the start of the St Ann's—are among the runners.

Champion trainer John O'Brien will be represented by Hyat Princess—partnered by champion jockey Brian Boodramsingh—while his other runner, Gold Rush, will be ridden by Canadian-based Emile Ramsammy.

The Trial Stakes is one of three feature events on Tuesday's ten-race holiday card, sponsored by First Citizens.

The other two main attractions are the 1,100-metre First Citizens Sian's Gold Sprint, with nine entrants, and the 1,200-metre First Citizens First Sprint, which has eight three-year-old importations.

The Sian's Gold Sprint, a Grade Two contest on the turf, has attracted the best grass track runners in the country, including Fly Junior, 1,100-metre track record holder on the lawn; Treasure Each Day, who holds the track record on the turf for 1,600 metres; and Just Call Me Roger, who won the 1,800-metre Independence Cup on the grass.

Here are the 124 declared runners, jockeys, post-positions and weights for the New Year's Day card, which has a post-time of 11 a.m.
