Nominations have been released for the Group 1 Memsie Stakes, which is due to run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday August 31, 2013.
A total of 18 horses have nominated for the 2013 Memsie Stakes, including Green Moon.
Green Moon will be returning for the spring racing carnival after a long winter spell following his two start autumn carnival campaign.
The six-year-old won the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup last spring, and is already nominated for the 2013 Cox Plate and 2013 Caulfield Cup this carnival.
Green Moon has won seven of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $5 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
The six-year-old finished fourth in both his race starts during the autumn carnival, with his most recent being in the Group 1 Australian Cup behind Super Cool.
Also included in the 2013 Memsie Stakes nominations is Atlantic Jewel, however, there is some uncertainty over whether she will run in the $350,000 event.
Atlantic Jewel’s connections, Coolmore Stud, do not want the mare to run in the 2013 Memsie Stakes if it is run as the final race of the day due to deteriorating track conditions.
The Fastnet Rock mare is returning after 18 months in the paddock following a tendon injury sustained in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes.
Atlantic Jewel has won all seven of her race starts and has earned more than $927,000 in prize money during her career.
