The final field has been released for the 2011 Darwin Cup at Fannie Bay Racecourse in the Northern Territory this Monday August 1, 2011.
The barrier draw for the Darwin Cup 2011 will be completed tomorrow July 29, 2011.
A total of 12 runners and two emergencies have made the 2011 Darwin Cup final field.
The race is worth a total of $175,000 in prize money and is run over a distance of 2,000 metres.
Trainer Michael Hickmott is waiting with bated breath to hear what barrier draw his gelding Agarkar will receive.
“Agarkar is jumping out of his skin, but the barrier draw could decide his fate because I’m not going to start a horse to just make up the numbers,” Hickmott said.
Hickmott wants to ensure that Agarkar is 100% for Monday’s Darwin Cup 2011, after suffering heartbreak at the hands of last year’s race when 2009 winner Activation suffered a career-ending injury mid-run.
“Activation suffered an injury turning out of the straight in last year’s Cup and although he completed the race it ended up being his last start because he has since retired,” Hickmott said.
“I was pretty close to Activation and a lot of hard work went into his Cup win, so it was indeed a sad occasion last year.”
