A set weights race for three-year-olds, the Hobartville Stakes is a good early autumn race for horses heading towards events such as the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 5, the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) at Warwick Farm on March 12 or the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on March 26.
The Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on February 12 is the traditional lead-up race to the Hobartville Stakes.
Last year’s Hobartville Stakes runner-up Shoot Out was coming off a win in the Royal Sovereign and continued on to take out the Group 1 Randwick Guineas and later the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby in April, while Captain Sonador managed to finish third in both the Hobartville and the Randwick Guineas in 2010.
On quality runner heading towards this season’s Hobartville Stakes is Doncaster Mile hopeful Masquerader.
The 2011 Hobartville Stakes final field will be released by the Sydney Turf Club on Wednesday February 23.
