Betting On The 2010 AJC Sires Produce Stakes

April 8th, 2010

The illustrious $300,000 Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) will see 12 elite two-year-olds compete for the prolific title when it takes place this Saturday.

As one of nine races taking place at the Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, the Group 1 event is due to jump at 3pm, forming part of the highly anticipated Australian Derby Day.

Randwick-based More Strawberries is coming into the 2010 Sires’ as favourite at $2.25. The filly by More Than Ready finished third in the Group 1 Golden Sliper Stakes (1200m) last week – the top finisher to back up in the AJC Sires Produce Stakes.

Randwick-based More Strawberries is coming into the 2010 Sires’ as favourite at $2.25.

Finishing fourth in the Slipper, Hinchinbrook is chasing the filly’s tail at $3.20, and the two are dominating the odds – the only starters in the single digits.

However punters should be aware of the extra 200 metre distance which neither of the favourites have competed over recently.

Toorak Toff, Blackball and Divorces are all equal in the odds – and closest to the favourites – at $13.

Toorak Toff could be a worthy punt, as the colt has won his last two starts – most recently the Group 3 Jansz National Stakes (1200m).

Rounding out the odds for the 2010 AJC Sires Produce Stakes is the Rick Worthington-trained Gold Arena at $101 – and would provide a lucrative payout if the starter manages to defy the odds!

Also taking place on Saturday at the Randwick Racecourse will be the $1.3 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m), the Group 1 T J Smith Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m).
