Platelet Heads 2012 Lightning Stakes Nominations

Black-type racing returns to South Australia this weekend, with the Listed $80,000 2012 Lightning Stakes (1050m) set to take place at Morphetville Racecourse.

Restricted to two and three-year-olds,  the 24-horse nominations list for Saturday’s feature is headlined by last-start winner Platelet who will travel west from Victoria if trainer Darren Weir accepts on Wednesday.

The talented filly is chasing a fourth consecutive victory and boasts a career record of five wins from 12 outings.

A daughter of Strategic, Platelet signalled her potential for bigger things last start when she beat a host of more experienced rivals to claim the Listed John Monash Stakes at Caulfield.

Another horse with black-type success likely to make the trip west is Peter Moody-trained filly One Last Dance who will be having her first start since February.

The highly-promising youngster has won all three of her starts to date including the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude.

A daughter of Encosta De Lago, she may not be the only Moody horse in the race with fellow three-year-old Le Societe also nominated.

Le Societe has shown plenty of promise in her young career, winning three of five starts and is coming off a fourth-place finish to Platelet in the Monash Stakes.

High profile Sydney trainer Anthony Cummings has one nomination for Saturday’s feature, with Diamond Earth chasing her first black-type victory.

The daughter of Choisir has won three of eight starts and already brought home more than $450,000 in prize money.

One of the nominated local hopes is David Jolly-trained filly Avoid Lightning who has posted victory four times from five career races.

Other horses included in nominations for the Adelaide feature are Brian Mueller-trained Comearoundsundown and New Zealand-bred Zippa The Rippa.
