Nominations out for 2012 Aspiration Quality – Randwick Guineas Day

The 2012 Aspiration Quality is one of four Listed races that will take place as part of Randwick Guineas day at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday.

The $100,000 race is run over 1600 metres and will feature an impressive selection of mares and fillies aged three-years-old and above.

Included in the 2012 Aspiration Quality nominations is the Ron Quinton trained Crafty Irna who is fresh off a second-place effort in the Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill on March 3.

Older Than Time is the nominated top weight (59kg) and the Gai Waterhouse trained mare also ran in the Millie Fox Stakes where she finished third.

Lamasery and Crafty Irna

Crafty Irna has been nominated for the 2012 Aspiration Quality

The five-year-old has a decent record that includes five wins from 18 starts and boasts career prize money in excess of $250,000.

Grahame Begg trained Cabernet is another nominated five-year-old with a decent record, having recorded five wins from 16 outings.

She is coming off a fourth-place finish in the Wiggle Stakes at Warwick Farm last weekend.

Sydney trainer Joseph Pride will have two mares running in the Aspiration Quality with Sienna Red and Rubinacci.

Sienna Red has three wins from 15 starts and finished fifth in her last start in Rosehill’s Parramatta Cup on March 3.

Rubinacci will be looking for a sharp turn around following an extremely disappointing last place finish in the Wiggle Stakes last weekend in her first race back following a spell.
