Lee-Steere Classic 2011 – Final Field & Barrier Draw

December 7th, 2011

It has been revealed that 11 horses have accepted for the 2011 Lee-Steere Classic after the final field and barrier draw was released today.

The Group 3 Sir Ernest Lee-Steere Classic is due to run at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday December 10, 2011.

Included in the Lee-Steere Classic 2011 final field is Night War, who has drawn barrier eight for the race.

Night War finished second in her last start in the Listed Placid Ark Stakes after winning her first-up start at Ascot on November 12.

The General Nediym filly has won three of her six race starts, including the Group 2 Karrakatta Plate as a two-year-old.

Night War, who was purchased for $90,000 as a yearling, has already earned more than $420,000 in prize money.

Also included in the 2011 Lee-Steere Classic final field is Watermans Bay, who won the Listed Placid Ark Stakes ahead of Night War on November 26.

The three-year-old gelding has won three of his five race starts and has earned more than $90,000 in prize money.

Watermans Bay has drawn barrier two in the Lee-Steere Classic 2011 and will be ridden by jockey Troy Turner.

Daniel Morton’s Born To Excel will be having his fourth career start in the Lee-Steere Classic 2011.

Born To Excel will be having his first Group run in the 2011 Lee-Steere Classic after proving successful in a Westspeed 3YO Handicap at Ascot last month.

The Exceed And Excel colt has now won two of his three race starts and has earned more than $23,000 in prize money.

The three-year-old will jump from barrier nine in the 2011 Lee-Steere Classic and will be ridden by jockey William Pike.
