Hill Stakes 2012 – Royal Randwick Race Preview

June 13th, 2012

The Group 2 Hill Stakes is due to take place at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday September 22, 2012.

Run over a distance of 2,000 metres, the 2012 Hill Stakes is worth $175,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Hill Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

The winner of last year’s edition of the 2012 Hill Stakes was Trusting, who won the race by an incredible four lengths ahead of Hawk Island and Tullamore.

Trusting went on to finish a gallant seventh in the Group 1 The Metropolitan in his next race start before having a summer spell.

The five-year-old has won four of his 24 race starts and has earned close to $925,000 in prize money during his career.
