2012 Bletchingly Stakes Nominations

This Saturday the final Group race of the 2011-12 Australian thoroughbred racing season will take place at Victoria’s Caulfield Racecourse with the Bletchingly Stakes 2012.

Nominations for the $125,000 Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m), won 12 months ago by Peter Moody’s subsequent Stradbroke Handicap champ Mid Summer Music, were taken by Racing Victoria today with 20 early entries.

Moody will vie for successive Bletchingly Stakes victories this year having nominated for recent stable addition Ready To Rip and his lightly raced Anabaa filly Le Societe.

Formerly prepared on the Sunshine Coast by Andrew Williamson, More Than Ready four-year-old Ready To Rip made a successful debut for Moody last start when scoring a narrow first-up victory over Gossip Girl in the Listed All Victorian Sprint Final (1200m) at Flemington on July 7.

Meanwhile Le Societe, a first-up winner at Caulfield on June 30 which was her third career success from four starts, was last seen finishing a brave fourth beaten one and three quarter lengths by Platelet in the Listed Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) in the mud at Caulfield on July 14.

Monash Stakes winner Platelet, their stablemate and Monash runner-up Royal Bender, and third placed Zamorar are also all nominated for the Bletchingly Stakes this weekend.

Darren Weir’s piping hot Warrnambool galloper Platelet will be shooting for their fourth straight turf triumph on Saturday, the Monash Stakes having been their second black type win.

Other notable hopefuls among the Bletchingly Stakes nominations include Wayne Nichols’ veteran Benalla runner Diplomatic Force, recent Spear Chief Handicap second placegetter Dusty Star, and the Robbie Griffiths-trained Flying Spur mare Spurcific.

See below for the full list of 2012 Bletchingly Stakes nominees, the final field of acceptors due for release on Wednesday.
