Top 3YOs Battle For Lightning Favouritism

Friday, 17th February 2017

Two of the best 3YO colts, from what is a vintage crop, are involved in pre race jousting before tomorrow's Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington. Both Flying Artie and Star Turn are taking turns to swap leads at the head of a market that can't settle on a favourite. The duo is around the $4.80 mark, although both of them have the year older Spieth nipping at their heels at $5. With Terravista, Flamberge, The Quarterback, Supido and Heatherly also among the main chances, this year's renewal is expected to be a thriller right down to the wire. Adding to the intrigue is Illustrious Lad, who has not finished out of the first two in his past seven starts. It could be a big day for Vinery Stud, co-owners of Star Turn who will stand at their Hunter Valley property at the end of his race career. Vinery's icing on the cake could come earlier in the Listed Talindert Stakes where four 2YOs by resident stallion and Champion 3YO All Too Hard are among the chances to provide their high profile sire with his first winner.
