Railway Stakes 2011 – Barrier Draw Announced

November 16th, 2011

The Railway Stakes 2011 is scheduled to run as Race 8 at 3.45pm (AWST) at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday November 19, 2011.

Grant Williams’ Ranger has drawn well in barrier six for the 2011 Railway Stakes.

“This race is right up his alley,” Williams said.

“Even if there is no early pace they will up tempo at the half mile and that’s where he will come into it.

“With a trouble free run he will hit the line well.

“His fitness is fine now.

“It’s just a matter of getting the races into him.

“We’ll have no excuses if he gets beaten.

“We just need luck in running and to be close enough so he can use his sprint at the end.”

Williams also has promising mare Tranquility in the 2011 Railway Stakes, however, the five-year-old has drawn the widest barrier of 18.

Tranquility finished second in the Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes last start by a nose behind Westriver Kevydonn.

“It was a good effort in the Peters and she hit the line well,” Williams said.

“If they go hard early she will be the one steaming home at the business end of the race.

“She is at her top now.”
