2012 Tramway Handicap Nominations Released

A classy list of Sydney Spring Racing Carnival hopefuls have been nominated for the Tramway Handicap 2012 this weekend, the race one of four Group features on the Warwick Farm card for Saturday.

Moment Of Change

2012 Epsom Handicap fancy Moment Of Change is nominated for the Tramway Stakes at Warwick Farm this Saturday

Last year the $125,000 Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) produced a number of season stars including the winner Sincero who won the $350,000 Group 1 George Main Stakes (1500m) at their next start, and runner-up Secret Admirer who continued on to take out last year’s $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick.

This year a total of 18 horses were nominated for the 2012 Tramway Handicap including four from the stables of leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller.

Waller has entered English import Class Is Class, Randwick Guineas runner-up Said Com, six-year-old Shoot Out who hasn’t run since their second to More Joyous in the Doncaster Mile, and Rangirangdoo for the feature but could have only one or two starters come the weekend.

Reigning Chipping Norton Stakes champ Shoot Out is likely to be given a final barrier trail before he resumes and be saved for a later run, while Rangirangdoo is dually nominated at the meeting having also been entered for the $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) for their eight-year-old debut.

Class Is Class meanwhile is yet to race in Australia, the Montjeu gelding having formerly been prepared by Sir Michael Stout in Newmarket, their most recent run being a big three and a half length win in the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes (2098m) at Haydock Park in August last year.

Two of the Tramway hopefuls this year then come off returning wins with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Kontiki Park who won over 1400m at Rosehill on August 18, and Peter Moody’s spruik Barley A Moment four-year-old Moment Of Change.

Moment Of Change beat a class field first-up in the Listed Show County Quality (1200m) at Warwick Farm on August 25 and is the shortest-priced of the Tramway Handicap nominations in the futures Epsom Handicap odds at bookmaker.com.au.

In markets led by Cox Plate-bound More Joyous ($7), Moment Of Change is equal third favourite for the Epsom paying $11 along with Fat Al from Tulloch Lodge and four time Group 1 winner Mosheen.

Other notable Tramway nominees include the Peter Snowden-trained Ambidexter who was beaten under a length when fourth to Mosheen in the Randwick Guineas and fourth again this time to Laser Hawk in the Rosehill Guineas during the autumn, Kiwi mare Dowager Queen last seen running fourth in the Queensland Oaks when campaigning in Australia during the winter, Queensland Oaks winner Quintessential who went on to run second to Brambles in the Queensland Derby, and Waterhouse’s promising four-year-old Wild And Proud.

The Tramway Handicap 2012 final field and barrier draw is due for release on Wednesday, with weights out on Tuesday.
