There have been just three acceptors for Wednesday’s Group 3 Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m), the feature event of Caulfield’s midweek meeting.
Godolphin’s Hanseatic, Maher & Eustace’s Anders, and Ranting from the Leon & Troy Corstens camp are the three confirmed runners for the $400,000 event.
Malua Racing saw the humorous side of the small field size, poking fun at the barrier draw on twitter.
We can’t take a trick at the moment with our barriers. Ranting draws the outside! 😜 pic.twitter.com/cn98HX2t5r
