Odds and betting markets have been released for the Group 1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley tomorrow night March 23, 2012.
Hay List is presently the $1.35 favourite at bookmaker.com.au to win the 2012 William Reid Stakes despite rumours that he has sustained a stone bruise to the heel on his near fore leg.
Racing Victoria’s deputy chairman of stewards Alan Reardon was informed of the problem and will subject Hay List to a veterinary inspection before the race.
“John (McNair) rang to say that Hay List had bruising to his near fore, inside his heel,” Reardon said.
“He said, ‘there won’t be any worries about him running on Friday. I just wanted to let you (know) that he has some bruising’.”
Hay List has won 15 of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $2.47 million in prize money.
Buffering, Woorim and Foxwedge are on the second line of betting at bookmaker.com.au and are all paying $12 to win the race.
Buffering finished second to Hay List by a nose in the 2012 Newmarket Handicap at Flemington last start, but will have to give Hay List an extra four kilograms in tomorrow’s 2012 William Reid Stakes.
The four-year-old gelding has won eight of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $1.2 million in prize money.
Woorim will be looking to post his second Group1 win after winning the Oakleigh Plate two starts back at Caulfield.
The six-year-old Show A Heart gelding finished fifth in his most recent start in the Group 1 Newmarket handicap and will be looking to improve on that result in the 2012 William Reid Stakes.
Foxwedge passed the post in third position in the Newmarket Handicap last start and will carry the lightest weight of the field (56kg) in tomorrow’s 2012 William Reid Stakes.
