The Metropolitan 2012 – Final Field & Barrier Draw

October 3rd, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 1 The Metropolitan, which is set to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday October 6, 2012.

Included in the 2012 The Metropolitan final field is Kelinni, who won the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality last start.

Kelinni has won seven of his 16 race starts and has earned more than $280,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Refuse To Bend gelding won the Colin Stephen Quality last start after posting a gallant fourth in the Listed Wyong Gold Cup in his previous race start.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding is looking to run Kelinni in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup 2012 later in the spring racing carnival.

Kelinni has drawn barrier eight for the 2012 The Metropolitan and will carry a weight of 52 kilograms in the race.

Also included in the 2012 The Metropolitan is Lamasery, who too won his previous race start.

The Commands gelding won the Group 2 Hill Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse last weekend by a head in front of Mourayan and Lights Of Heaven.

The six-year-old appears to have made a successful return for injury that saw him sidelined for almost a year following the 2011 spring carnival.

Lamasery has drawn barrier one for the 2012 The Metropolitan and will be ridden by jockey Peter Robl.

Polish Knight, Crafty Irna and Efficient are also included in the 2012 The Metropolitan final field and barrier draw.
