Andrew Ramsden Stakes 2020 Barrier Draw

A field of twelve runners have accepted for the Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes at Flemington on Saturday May 16, a race that gives the winner ballot exemption for the Melbourne Cup.

This year we see the 2020 Adelaide Cup winner in King Of Leogrance (barrier five) tackle the progressive Too Close The Sun (barrier two), who went from a Terang Cup victory to then take out the Listed 2020 Warrnambool Cup as the popular elect.

The well bred 2020 Adelaide Cup runner-up Good Idea (barrier eight) and the Paul Preusker-trained Dark Alley (barrier six), from a stable that just missed in this feature last year with Surprise Baby, are also among the acceptances.
