Ocean Park Features In 2012 Mackinnon Stakes Nominations

The nominations have been released for the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes, which is due to run at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday November 3, 2012.

Ocean Park will be looking to continue his flawless spring campaign in the $1 million Mackinnon Stakes after winning the Cox Plate last weekend.

The Thorn Park entire proved that he is currently the best weight-for-age galloper in Australia and New Zealand with his last start win and will be out to cement his claim this weekend.

Ocean Park has won seven of his 11 race starts and has earned more than $2.65 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

Ocean Park will back up in the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes after his Cox Plate win last weekend.

All four of his wins this preparation have been at Group 1 level and there is no sign that he will fall short in the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes.

Also included in the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes nominations is Gatewood.

Gatewood will be out to earn automatic entry into the $6 million Melbourne Cup next Tuesday November 6, 2012, by winning the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes.

The four-year-old is also nominated for the Group 3 Lexus Stakes, which too carries ballot exemption for the Cup.

Gatewood won the Group 3 Geelong Cup last start, however, his one kilogram penalty was not enough to secure him a run in the 24 horse final field.

The Galileo entire will now become the first international horse to run three times prior to a possible Melbourne Cup start.

Gatewood has won five of his nine race starts and has earned close to $300,000 in prize money.

Alcopop, December Draw, Zabeelionaire and Glass Harmonium are also included in the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes nominations.
