Nominations Announced – 2012 Memsie Stakes

August 27th, 2012

Nominations have been announced for the Group 2 Memsie Stakes, which is set to take place at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday September 1, 2012.

A large field of 22 have nominated for the 16 starting positions in the 2012 Memsie Stakes, including All Too Hard.

All Too Hard is also nominated for the Group 3 Run To The Rose at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on the same day.

The three-year-old has won three of his five race starts and has earned more than $430,000 in prize money.

He finished third in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse last start and will be looking to post a win in his second spring start.

Luckygray will also be having his second race start in the 2012 Memsie Stakes after placing fourth in his first Melbourne run on August 18.

The five-year-old was coming of three wins in a row back in Perth when he failed to claim his fourth victory in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes.

Luckygray has won 10 of his 14 race starts and has earned more than $1.14 million in prize money.

Rekindled Interest will be having the first run of his spring carnival in the 2012 Memsie Stakes after withdrawing from the PB Lawrence Stakes last weekend.

Trainer Jim Conlan felt last week’s course would have been too rain-affected for Rekindled Interest, who does not have the best of form on heavy tracks.

“He’d been aimed at that race and we thought he was ready to run, but the rain came and I decided at wasn’t worth it first-up on a heavy track,” Conlan said.

Maluckyday will also begin his Melbourne Cup 2013 campaign in the 2012 Memsie Stakes after 12 months away from racing.
