Victory Stakes 2020 Barrier Draw

The Brisbane Winter Carnival heats up with a return to headquarters at Eagle Farm this Saturday and the Group Two Victory Stakes is of the features on a strong nine race card.

Run over 1200m and under set weights and penalties conditions, this race has a decent honor roll with Buffering, Swiss Ace and Rough Habit on the winners list along with the recently retired I Am Excited, The Group One Galaxy champion in 2020 and the 2019 winner of the Victory Stakes

For the 2020 edition, Vega One who was the $4.50 favourite with Sportsbetting.com.au in the early markets, has drawn barrier nine and it's worth noting that Jim Byrne now takes the ride on this four-year-old with Baylee Northdurft on the stable mate in Outback Barbie (barrier seven).

Ryan Maloney sticks with the enigmatic Godolphin galloper Kementari who arrives off a fifth placing in the Group Three BRC Sprint on May 9 but will have to overcome barrier thirteen in his bid to break a long winning drought of more than two years.

Last start BRC Sprint winner Tambo's Mate has won two of three attempts at Eagle Farm and has drawn gate six with Matthew McGillivray to steer.
