Saturday’s 2013 Inglis Classic Nominations Out

A total of 20 promising two-year-olds have been nominated for this Saturday’s Inglis Classic 2013 at Rosehill Gardens, the $250,000 restricted race the richest on the card anywhere in Australia on the weekend.

Direct Charge

Direct Charge is the highest earner in the 2013 Inglis Classic Nominations

Three of the 20 juveniles entered for the 2013 Inglis Classic (1200m) come off a last-start win including the Harold Norman-trained Cannyzing.

The Gold Coast-based Canny Led gelding debuted when second at Murwillumbah on December 30 and showed excellent improvement when they travelled to Eagle Farm last Saturday, January 12, to beat a decent field by an easy three lengths in a 2YO maiden over 1000m.

The two other last start victors that are both coming off wins-on-debut are then the Kris Lees-trained Strada filly Devil In A Dress who won by 2.5 lengths at Scone on December 29 and who has been kept fresh with a winning Wyong barrier trial from January 8, and Matthew Dale’s Not A Single doubt gelding Meticulously who won at Wagga by 3 lengths.

The highest earner of the hopefuls meanwhile is the Robbie Laing-trained Direct Charge, the Charge Forward colt already racking up over $100,000 in prize money in their four career starts to date thanks to a very tight win in the Group 3 HKJC Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington back in November.

Direct Charge has been ridden by Steve Arnold for all four of their runs so far but Arnold will be replaced by Glyn Schofield in the Inglis Classic.

The experienced Schofield picked up the ride after Arnold opted not to continue his association with the youngster following their disappointing first-up sixth to Swing Vote at Warwick farm on January 5.

Other notable earners include the Bjorn Baker-trained Fuerza who won $45,000 in their debut when second to Twilight Royale in the $250,000 Inglis Nursery Stakes (1000m) at Warwick Farm back in December and who will wear blinkers for the first time this weekend, Gary Nickson’s Strada filly Sweet Kiss ($39,250) who was third in the Inglis Nursery, and the Noel Mayfield-Smith-trained Choisir colt Standard Bearer ($30,900).

The now Sydney-based Baker, formerly from New Zealand, has also nominated for Awarewolf who was last seen running second at Queanbeyan in December.

Of the non-raced Inglis Classic hopefuls the most notable looks to be from the Gai Waterhouse stables with Marseille Roulette, son of 2004 Golden Slipper runner-up Zizou debuting on the back of a close Randwick trial win over 740m on January 4.

Check out the full list of 2013 Inglis Classic nominees in the table below with the final field due for release on Wednesday.
