Cockram Stakes 2012 – Race Preview

May 30th, 2012

The Group 3 Cockram Stakes is set to take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday August 18, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the 2012 Cockram Stakes is worth $100,000 in prize money.

The 2012 PB Lawrence Stakes is open to mares only and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

Last year’s Cockram Stakes was won by talented mare Mid Summer Music, who won the race by almost a length ahead of Parables.

The now six-year-old mare has won nine of her 22 race starts and has earned more than $610,000 in prize money.

Mid Summer Music finished ninth in her most recent start in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben racecourse on May 26, 2012.

The Oamaru Force mare is a big chance to defend her title and line up for the 2012 Cockram Stakes.
