2012 Roman Consul Stakes Nominations

Nominations were released on Monday for the nine black-type races on the Royal Randwick race card for this Saturday including those for the Roman Consul Stakes 2012.


Heritage Stakes winner Ichihara is nomianted for this weekend's Roman Consul Stakes 2012

While the better staying three-year-olds will be vying for the $400,000 Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), another three-year-olds feature on the Epsom Handicap Day program is the $175,000 Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m).

Won 12 months ago by subsequent William Reid Stakes champ Foxwedge, this year’s Roman Consul Stakes drew 10 nominees.

Foxwedge’s trainer John O’Shea will vie for back-to-back wins in the classic having nominated for his improving Exceed And Excel colt Knight Exemplar and Fastnet Rock colt Spanish Matador.

Foxwedge won the Roman Consul on the back of a fourth in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m).

This year the Anthony Cummings-trained Your Song (8th) is the only Golden Rose runner to be nominated for the Roman Consul, the son of Fastnet Rock having run a brave second to the undefeated Pierro in the Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) two starts back.

Cummings has also nominated for his nice General Nediym filly Agueda.

Agueda has raced exclusively in black type company since her fourth career start back in February, her best results over a promising 10-start career to date including her second in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1000m) at Randwick back in April and her last-start third to Ichihara in the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) on September 22.

Heritage Stakes winner Ichihara, another daughter of General Nediym, has also been nominated for the Roman Consul – Allan Denham’s Group 2 Magic Night Stakes winner third-up for the season.

Other notable Roman Consul Stakes 2012 nominees include the John Thompson-trained stakes winner Destruction coming off a Heritage Stakes sixth upon resuming, and Jolie Bay who was last seen breaking their maiden status with a first-up win at Hawkesbury on September 13.
