Barrier Draw Released – 2012 Darwin Cup

August 3rd, 2012

Barriers have been released for the Darwin Cup, which is due to take place at Darwin Racecourse on Monday August 6, 2012.

Hawks Bay has drawn the inside barrier of one for 2012 Darwin Cup and will be ridden by jockey Steven Arnold.

The seven-year-old gelding will have to contend with the top weight of 64.5 kilograms if he wants to win the Darwin Cup 2012.

Hawks Bay won last year’s Darwin Cup and is looking to make Darwin racing carnival news by going back to back this coming Monday.

Sheahan has drawn barrier nine in the 2012 Darwin Cup, however, should come into eight if both emergencies are scratched.

The five-year-old gelding has won his last two starts this preparation, with his most recent being in the $48,000 Metric Mile on July 28, 2012.

Sheahan will be ridden by jockey Scott Hillebrand in the 2012 Darwin Cup.

I Am Magic has drawn the widest gate of the field with 14 and will be partnered by Phillip Crich.
