Underwood Stakes 2012 – Caulfield Race Preview

June 13th, 2012

The Group 1 Underwood Stakes is set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday September 22, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,800 metres, the 2012 Underwood Stakes is worth $350,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Underwood Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Last year’s Underwood Stakes won by Lion Tamer, who went on to run an unexpected eighth in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes at his next start.

The four-year-old was victim to a tragic accident in the Emirates Stakes later in the carnival, which ultimately led to him being put down.

Lion Tamer won six of his 15 race starts and had earned more than $1.2 million in prize money.

The Storming Home entire had his most successful result when first in the Group 1 Victoria Derby as a three-year-old.
