Sat Flemington "2-Miler" Offers Melb Cup Ballot Clearance
The Victoria Racing Club has received 17 entries for Saturday's $150,000 Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes (3200m) at Flemington, a race which presents stayers with a valuable opportunity to pass the 1st ballot for the $6.2 million Gr1 Melbourne Cup (over the same course & distance in November). Last year the race was won by Niwot, who subsequently won the Gr3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington before finishing 8th in the Melbourne Cup behind Dunaden & most recently won last month's Gr1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick.
