George Moore Stakes Nominations 2011

The Doomben Summer Series kicks off in Brisbane this Saturday with the running of the 2011 George Moore Stakes, nominations for which were released by Racing Queensland today.


Rarefied headlines the 2011 George Moore Stakes nominations for Saturday

A start-studded list of 20 sprinters have been entered for the $200,000 George Moore Stakes (1200m) this year, a race that was cancelled 12 months ago.

One of the headline nominees for the George Moore Stakes 2011 is Peter Snowden’s Sydney raider Rarefied, the classy Commands five-year-old to race in their fourth state in as many starts this preparation if accepted.

After a first-up second in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1100m) at Randwick on October 15, Rarefied went on to finish a nose second to Sister Madly in the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Derby Day.

The talented galloper was last seen finishing second again, this time to top Melbourne mare Ortensia in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse on November 19.

Now it is onto Queensland for the George Moore, Rarefied set to face off against a strong field of local hopes.

Many of the sunshine state’s best trainers are represented in the list of nominations for Saturday including Magic Millions-winning trainer Gillian Heinrich who has entered Bel Esprit four-year-old Audacious Spirit and multiple Group placegetter Startsmeup, fellow Gold Coast-based Bryan Guy nominating seven-year-old Shuffle The Cash and Jazz Heart, and Toowoomba horseman Tony Gollan with Listen Son and Spirit Of Boom.

Big Jesse gelding Listen Son returned to form after a dead-last finish in a Group 3 at Flemington on Derby Day with a gritty upset win in the Listed Keith Noud Quality Handicap (1200m) at Eagle Farm on November 26, a race stablemate Spirit Of Boom ran ninth in.

Gollan is confident both of his hopefuls have come on since their last-start and is looking forward to Saturday.

“They hadn’t raced since coming back from Melbourne and there is no doubt they are fitter now,” he said.

It will be a similar field to the Keith Noud facing off on Saturday, other horses coming via the feature including runner-up Excellantes from the stables of Rob Heathcote, third placed Essington, Ollie Vollie (4th), Belltone (5th), Ready To Rip (6th) and Tierqualo (7th).

Another notable entry for the George Moore this year is the Barry Baldwin-trained Havatryst.

Foreplay four-year-old Havatryst won back-to-back races earlier this season but a minor injury to their foreleg saw them miss a key lead-up in the Keith Noud.

“He only missed a couple of gallops and he’s right again now,” Baldwin assured punters.

“He would have been looking for longer had he not hurt himself but he won’t have raced for five weeks come Saturday so he’s fresh enough to run 1200 (metres).”

The 2011 George Moore Stakes final field and barriers are due for release on Wednesday, with to publish them right here so bookmark this site.
