The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup, which is due to run at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday May 19, 2012.
Included in the 2012 Lord Mayor’s Cup final field and barrier draw is Miss Keepsake.
The mare has drawn barrier ten for the 2012 Lord Mayor’s Cup and will be ridden by jockey Christian Reith.
Miss Keepsake finished a disappointing seventh in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes last start and trainer Joseph Pride is confident the Keeper mare can produce a better performance this weekend.
“Through no fault of Christian Reith’s, she was ridden upside and she doesn’t race well when she’s on top of the pace without any cover,” Pride said of her last start.
“She’s better ridden back behind them like she was at her two previous starts which produced two really high rating runs, including a career best when second to More Joyous.”
Pride is hoping for a win in the 2012 Lord Mayor’s Cup to aid in the sale of Miss Keepsake at the Broodmare Sales after the race.
“She’s being sold a week after she runs on Saturday,” he said.
“She is being sold as a racing and breeding proposition and I would be more than happy if the new owner wanted to keep her under my care.”
Miss Keepsake has won five of her 29 race starts and has earned more than $520,000 in prize money.
Gathering and Divorces are also included in the 2012 Lord Mayor’s Cup final field.
