32 horses have nominated for a start in the 2012 Naturalism Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday September 22, 2012.
The horses will be looking to gain a ballot exemption for the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup next month.
Included in the 2012 Naturalism Stakes is Robert Hickmott’s Efficient.
Efficient, who is now a nine-year-old, placed tenth in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes last start and will be looking for a better result second-up this weekend.
The Zabeel gelding has won seven of his 29 race starts and has earned more than $4.78 million in prize money.
The once Melbourne Cup winner proved he was not too old to perform during the autumn, where he finished a close second to Niwot in the Group 1 Sydney Cup.
Efficient is nominated for a run in the Cox Plate, Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup this spring racing carnival.
Lamasery is another stayer nominated for the 2012 Naturalism Stakes this Saturday.
The Commands gelding has won 10 of his 20 race starts and has earned more than $480,000 in prize money during his career.
Lamasery finished fourth first-up this spring in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes, before placing third in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes last start.
Fruehling, Mourayan and Zabeelionaire are also included in the 2012 Naturalism Stakes nominations.
