Classy 2012 Memsie Stakes Nominations Released

Race fans are in for a treat at Caulfield this weekend with an excellent group of horses entered to contest the Group 2 2012 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Rekindled Interest

Rekindled Interest is set to kick off his spring campaign in Saturday's Memsie Stakes

Twenty two horses have been included in nominations and among the quality entrants are Perth star Luckygray and Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest.

Luckygray made the first start of his Melbourne campaign on August 18 on a heavy Caulfield track and tried hard to finish fourth in the PB Lawrence Stakes.

Rekindled Interest will be having the first start of a campaign that will again target the prestigious Australian weight-for-age championship.

There are a number of horses set to have the first start of their spring campaigns in the Memsie Stakes and among those are Sydney Cup winner Niwot who has been nominated for both the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.

Another Group 1 winner kicking off their spring campaign in the Memsie Stakes is 2011 Stradbroke winner Sincero who had a solid autumn campaign which included a fourth-place finish in the Doncaster Mile.

Two interesting entrants ahead of the major spring features are imports Voila Ici and Val Champ.

Val Champ, nominated for both the Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup, has been brought to Australia from Argentina and will step out for the Anthony Freedman stable this weekend.

The Peter Moody-trained Voila Ici will also make their Australian debut after arriving from Italy earlier this year.

Other horses nominated for the Memsie Stakes include last-start winner Second Effort and the in-form Dusty Star.
