Norzita On Track For 2013 Caulfield Stakes

August 8th, 2013

The Group 1 Caulfield Stakes is due to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 12, 2013.

The race is worth $400,000 in prize money and is run over a distance of 2,000 metres.

The 2013 Caulfield Stakes will take place under weight-for-age conditions and is open to horses aged three-year-olds and upwards.

Scheduled to run as part of Caulfield Guineas Day, the race shares its program with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Toorak Handicap, Group 2 Schillaci Stakes, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes, Group 3  Northwood Plume Stakes and Listed Weekend Hussler Stakes.

The 2013 Caulfield Stakes provides horses with invaluable experience going into the $3 million Cox Plate at Moonee Valley two weeks later.

Norzita is one horse who will be using the 2013 Caulfield Stakes as a stepping stone to the 2013 Caulfield Stakes.

Co-trainer James Cummings is confident that Norzita is at her best going into the spring racing carnival.

“She is a bit stronger than she was last prep, which is natural,” Cummings said on RSN.

Norzita has won four of her 11 race starts and has earned more than $965,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.

The Thorn Park mare won the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes last preparation before placing third in the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap in April.
