Mid Summer Music Heads Silk Stocking 2012 Nominations

Peter Moody-trained mare Mid Summer Music is the headline act in a 26-horse nominations list for the Listed $150,000 2012 Silk Stocking (1200m) to take place at the Gold Coast this Saturday.

Whether or not the six-year-old lines up in the fillies and mares event is yet to be decided as she is also nominated for the Prime Minister’s Cup.

No matter which race she lines up in, Mid Summer Music should appreciate the chance to take on a lesser quality field after producing promising efforts behind stars Black Caviar, Hay List and Atlantic Jewel in recent times.

Fillydelphia is another mare to be dual nominated for both the Silk Stocking and the Prime Minister’s Cup and her Brisbane trainer Robert Heathcote will be hoping she can emulate her spring form as she heads towards the Brisbane Winter Carnival.

The four-year-old had a highly successful spring that included three victories from six starts and a worst finish of third from three other outings.

She is one of two Heathcote-trained horses included in nominations with the other being Funtantes who is coming off consecutive runner-up finishes in Listed races at Eagle Farm.

Fresh off a reasonable Sydney carnival is Joseph Pride-trained mare Ladys Angel who recorded three placings from five starts in the harbour city including last start in the Group 1 Galaxy.

Redoute’s Choice mare Dystopia is making her return from a brief spell after ending her Sydney campaign on a disappointing note with a 13th-place finish in the Wenona Girl Handicap after previously impressing with back-to-back victories.

Other horses included in nominations are TJ Smith Stakes runner Varenna Miss and Brisbane-based filly Saraji.
