Toorak Handicap Nominations 2011

October 4th, 2011

The 2011 Toorak Handicap nominations have been released and there are 22 horses with ambitions to win the $350,000 Group 1 event across 1600m at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday.

A final field of 18 will be announced tomorrow and given the depth of talent on paper in this one it looks as if it will become a hotly run contest.

Highlighting just how strong the 2011 Toorak Handicap Nominations are take a look at the calibre of horses that still aren’t guaranteed entry.

Fast Clip is a hugely hyped horse and he sits in the final guaranteed position, ballot 18.

After him it’s Lord Pyrus in 19 and then both Avienus and Blackie locked together in 20th.

Blackie’s last start was at group 1 level and he run well so he’s no stranger to this grade and his ability is unquestioned.

Behind him and last on the current ballot is Gold Salute but don’t give up as anything could happen between now and the final field.

Of course at the other end of the list there’s a mountain of talent too, Toorak Toff, Playing God, Wall Street, King Mufhasa and Pinwheel all in great form and thriving coming into this one.

There’s no doubt the 2011 Toorak Handicap is going to be a great race so make sure you get on it with online bookmaker Luxbet.
