Ecuador and Oxford Poet vie for 2017 Carrington Stakes favouritism at Randwick

January 19, 2017

sydney racingA small field of seven will contest the listed 2017 Carrington Stakes at Randwick on Saturday with Ecuador and Oxford Poet vying for favouritism.

The Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott trained Ecuador is $3.70 favourite at online bookmaker William Hill, with Peter Robl’s Oxford Poet second elect at $3.80.

Adam Hyeronimus takes the mount on Ecuador, who resumed with a classy victory in the December tTakes (1400m) at Rosehill on Christmas eve.

The seven-year-old son of High Chaparral will lump 61 kilograms in the Carrington on Saturday.

Oxford Poet has the services of Blake Shinn for his second start this campaign.

He returned to racing with a solid third behind Dal Cielo in the Summer Sprint (1000m) at Warwick Farm earlier this month and will appreciate dropping three kilos for this event.

Next in betting are Kim Waugh pair Gold Symphony $4.80 and Ninth Legion $5.00, with Princefamous at $6.50.

The remaining pair, Shiraz $10.00 and Wouldnt It Be Nice $19.00, both trained by Peter & Paul Snowden, are the only runners at double figure odds.
