Adelaide Cup 2012 Final Field – Drunken Sailor Draws Barrier 20

March 7th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 Adelaide Cup at Morphettville Racecourse on Monday March 12, 2012.

A total of 20 horses have accepted to run in the 2012 Adelaide Cup, with top-weighted Drunken Sailor drawing the widest barrier.

Drunken Sailor will jump from gate 20 in the race, which is worth $400,000 in prize money.

The seven-year-old gelding will be fresh off his last start win in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality at Flemington Racecourse when he lines up in the 2012 Adelaide Cup.

Drunken Sailor has won 11 of his 42 race starts and has earned more than $800,000 in prize money.

The Tendulkar gelding will be having his fourth start for new trainer Michael Moroney in the 2012 Adelaide Cup.

Drunken Sailor will be ridden by jockey Damien Oliver in the Adelaide Cup 2012, where the horse will carry 59.5 kilograms.

Norsqui fared no better in the 2012 Adelaide Cup barrier draw, picking gate 19 for the 3,200 metre race.

The five-year-old gelding won the Listed Mornington Cup over 2,400 metres last month and will be looking to win over two miles for the first time in his career.

Norsqui has won seven of his 25 race starts and has earned more than $340,000 in prize money.

The Matsqui gelding will be ridden by jockey Chris Symons in the 2012 Adelaide Cup and will carry 56 kilograms.

Grant William’s Western Jewel has drawn perfectly for the 2012 Adelaide Cup and will jump from barrier four.

The five-year-old mare finished sixth in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality last start after finishing fifth at her first Melbourne race start in the Mornington Cup.

Western Jewel showed her true class when she won the Group 2 Perth Cup at Ascot Racecourse on December 31 last year.

The Jeune mare has won eight of her 30 race starts and has earned more than $520,000 in prize money.

Hanks, Saddler’s Story and Warringah are also included in the 2012 Adelaide Cup final field and barrier draw.
