Classy line-up for Classic Hot favourite: Antonio Lombardo, pictured right winning last month's Hawke's Bay Guineas, is expected to be the punter's pick in the Levin Classic at Otaki tomorrow. Photo: FAIRFAXNZ Best field in years By TANYA WOOD A day of fashion, fun and top class racing is forecast for tomorrow s Levin Classic race day at Otaki, as the field opens up for some exciting competition. While Two Thousand Guineas winner Rock n Pop and runner-up Anabandana were withdrawn from the race this week, Antonio Lombardo, one of the country s leading three-year-olds, unbeaten in three races this season, will be at the starting gate. The lineup also includes Duckworth Lewis, Testa Secret, Shanghai Bund, to be ridden by Anabandana jockey James McDonald, and Whoshe, with two Listed wins this year. Levin Racing Club vice- president Graham Smellie said it is one of the strongest fields in the event s 30 year history, with 14 of the original entries having won 17 Listed or Group One races between them, with total winnings of more than $2 million at the start of their first season as three-year-olds. They are the very best colts and fillies in the country, and it promises to be a magnifi- cent contest, he said. The loss of Rock n Pop and Anabandana has opened up the field, and should make for a more fiercely contested race. Ten races will be run, with $500,000 in stakes to be won, including $250,000 for the Classic, making it one of the richest galloping events for three-year-olds in New Zea- land, he said. Mr Smellie said 1200 people were already booked into cor- porate and private marquees, and Christmas Caper in the main stand, which includes a special meal, various personalities and prizes. The Fashion in the Field offers prizes for the best dressed woman, man, couple and fanciest feet . The event will be televised nationally on Trackside and relayed into Australia. The Levin Classic, known as the Bayer Classic for 15 years, was first run in 1981 with a stake of $100,000, and accorded Group One status in 1990. Last year s winner was We Can Say It Now, ridden by Leith Innes, and trained by Murray and Bjorn Baker from Cambridge. Levin Classic, Friday, noon, Otaki Race Course, $10. Free bus service departs: Waitarere Beach Bowling Club 10.40am; Levin RSA 11am, noon, 1pm; Levin Cobb & Co 11.03am; Levin Cosmopolitan Club 11.05am, 12.05pm, 1.05pm. Teenager crashes A Palmerston North teenager lost control while driving on Monday morning north of Otaki, crashing into a ditch and flipping his car. Sergeant Noel Bigwood said the 19-year-old man crashed at 10.45am about four kilometres north of Otaki. He will appear in court next week.
