2012 The Metropolitan – Weights Released

September 19th, 2012

Weights have been released for the Group 1 The Metropolitan, which is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday October 6, 2012.

Efficient and Rangirangdoo have been allocated the top weight of 58 kilograms.

Nine-year-old Efficient finished 10th in the Group 2 Memsie Stakes last start in what was his first-up run for the spring.

The Zabeel gelding has won seven of his 29 race starts and has earned more than $4.78 million in prize money.

A previous Melbourne Cup winner in 2007, Efficient proved his ability was still near its peak when he finished a close second to Niwot in the Group 1 Sydney Cup at Royal Randwick racecourse in April.

Rangirangdoo will also be having his second spring start in the 2012 The Metropolitan.

The Pentire gelding placed an impressive fourth in the Group 3 Tramway Handicap first-up behind winner Tagus.

Rangirangdoo has won 10 of his 29 race starts and has earned more than $2.13 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

He is also nominated for the Group 1 Epsom Handicap on the same day, as well as the $3 million Cox Plate on October 27, 2012, at Moonee Valley racecourse.

The eight-year-old gelding placed second by a nose to Manighar in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse during the autumn racing carnival.
