Nominations – 2012 All Aged Stakes

April 23rd, 2012

Nominations have been released for the 2012 All Aged Stakes, which is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.

13 horses have been nominated for the 2012 All Aged Stakes, including Atlantic Jewel.

The three-year-old filly is also nominated for the 2012 Emancipation Stakes on the same day, with trainer Mark Kavanagh looking to make a final decision on Wednesday morning.

Atlantic Jewel has won all six of her race starts, with her most recent being in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes at Royal Randwick on April 14, 2012.

The Fastnet Rock mare has earned more than $680,000 in prize money across her six race wins after being purchased for $320,000 from the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales.

Rain Affair is also nominated for the 2012 All Aged Stakes this Saturday.

Trainer Joseph Pride is hoping for a rain affected track and a no show from Atlantic Jewel for this year’s All Aged Stakes.

“It’s one eye on the weather and one eye on Atlantic Jewel,” Pride said.

“I don’t normally worry about other horses but I think she’s worthy of worrying about.

“I’m happy with him and would love the opportunity to run him on a bit wetter track on Saturday because I’ve still got the opportunity to take him to Brisbane,” Pride said.

“I think another run on a hard track might nearly see him out. I’d love the opportunity to run him on a wetter track and if I don’t get that it could actually sway me not to run him.

Christian Reith will get the ride aboard Rain Affair after regular rider Corey Brown was suspended.

“I wouldn’t say I made a commitment to him then but he’s done nothing wrong in the interim,” Pride said.

“He’s ridden a lot for the stable. I had a lot of offers for people to ride the horse but I’m a loyal sort of guy and I’ll leave Christian on.”

“I’m happy with him and would love the opportunity to run him on a bit wetter track on Saturday because I’ve still got the opportunity to take him to Brisbane,” Pride said.

“I think another run on a hard track might nearly see him out. I’d love the opportunity to run him on a wetter track and if I don’t get that it could actually sway me not to run him.”
