2011 Royal Randwick Guineas Nominations

Nominations for the 2011 Royal Randwick Guineas, which is due to take place at Warwick Farm this Saturday March 12, 2011, have been released.

14 horses have nominated for the $500,000 race which will be run over 1,600 metres and raced under set-weight conditions.

The 2011 Royal Randwick Guineas has attracted nominations from a group of extremely talented three-year-olds, including Ilovethiscity, Pressday, Retrieve and Masquerader.

Absolutelyawesome will finally get a start in a Group 1 after being an emergency for both the Victoria Derby and last Saturday’s Australian Guineas.

Absolutelyawesome has won one of five starts, but was struggling with a sore foot for most of the spring.

”He missed the derby by one and the guineas by four, and I just want to get him into one of these big races,” Michael Moroney said.

”I have nominated for a midweek race here just in case he doesn’t get a start up there, but I think he is up to running against the best.”

Ilovethiscity features in the 2011 Royal Randwick Guineas nominations after winning the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse of February 26, 2011.

The Grahame Begg-trained colt will be looking for his first Group 1 win of his career, after placing third in his first Group 1 attempt in the Golden Rose when he was blocked for a run.

Retrieve will be hoping to topple his opposition after finishing second to Ilovethiscity in his last start in the Hobartville stakes.

The multiple Group winner will be second-up in the 2011 Royal Randwick Guineas and will also be searching for his first Group 1 victory.

Also included in the 2011 Royal Randwick Guineas nominations is David Payne’s Praecido, Gai Waterhouse’s Light Brigade and Gerald Ryan’s Top Drop.
