Nursery winner to join the race for $3m Inglis Triple Crown
13th Dec 2018
The second and final 2YO eligible for the lucrative $3m Inglis Triple Crown will be known following the running of tomorrow’s $500,000 Inglis Nursery at Randwick.
The Inglis Nursery is the second race in the $8m 2018 Inglis Race Series and doubles as the ‘first’ leg of the Inglis Triple Crown.
To win the Triple Crown (and a $3m bonus), a horse must win either the Inglis Banner (Easter filly Espaaniyah, pictured, won this at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day) or tomorrow’s $500,000 Inglis Nursery, and the $2m Inglis Millennium (Warwick Farm, Saturday February 9) and the $1m Inglis Sires (Randwick, Day 1 of The Championships, Saturday April 6).
A total of 14 runners have accepted for the Nursery and the field is made up of graduates from each of Inglis’ three primary select yearling sales – Classic, Premier and Easter.
The $3.90 TAB favourite for the race is the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained colt Strasbourg (I Am Invincible x Danish Spy), a $750,000 Australian Easter Yearling Sale buy for China Horse Club/Newgate Farm/WinStar Farm, from the draft of Yarraman Park Stud.
The winning trainer of the Inglis Nursery will receive a set of Swarovski Optik EL 32 Swarovision binoculars valued at $2,554.
