Quality Regal Roller Stakes 2012 Nominations Announced

A number of exciting horses are due to return at Caulfield this weekend and one race that will feature plenty of quality is the Listed $120,000 2012 Regal Roller Stakes (1200m).

Included in the 21-horse nominations list is multiple Group 1 winner Yosei but it is unclear where exactly she will start as she is also nominated for the Group 3 Cockram Stakes.

The Doncaster third placegetter was a star during the early stages of her career, winning the Sires’ Produce Stakes as a two-year-old before later winning the Thousand Guineas and the Tattersall’s Tiara.

A number of emerging horses have been nominated for the Regal Roller Stakes including unbeaten four-year-old Lucky Penny.

The Peter Morgan-trained youngster has been highly impressive in the early stages of her career, producing three consecutive victories including the Listed Laelia Stakes at Morphetville in May.

Promising Peter Moody-trained gelding Moment Of Change has finished outside the top three only once in his career and that was in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas in March.

The four-year-old has won three of six starts and finished third in both the Group 2 Royal Sovreign Stakes and the Hobartville Stakes earlier this year.

Other Moody-trained horses entered are former two-year-old star One Last Dance and promising mare Le Societe.

One nominated horse already in excellent form is Freereturn who won the William Martin Harvey Sprint on August 4 after finishing runner-up to Golden Archer in his previous start.

Trained by Jason Warren in Mornington, Freereturn has won eight of 20 starts but is yet to score victory at stakes level.

Also included in Regal Roller Stakes nominations are recent addition to Stuart Webb’s stable Bliss Street and former Oakleigh Plate winner Eagle Falls.
