Vancouver Steps Out In New Livery Tomorrow
While tomorrow's three Gr2 events in Australia and New Zealand are technically the best races over the weekend, the Gr3 San Domenico Stakes at Sydney's Rosehill Gardens will probably boast the biggest audience. The race marks the seasonal return of 2015's undefeated Gr1 Golden Slipper hero Vancouver, who will sport his new China Horse Club Racing livery for the first time. The eight-strong field is a cracker. Even though Vancouver is expected to make a triumphant return – he is rated a $2.40 chance – the line-up also includes high class individuals Headwater, Haptic, Japonisme, Redzel and King's Troop, all of which have varying weight relief against the 60kg top-weight.
