63 The BMW 2013 Nominations Include Pierro

Gai Waterhouse indicated she is keeping her options wide open with top colt Pierro when he was yesterday announced as one of 63 entrants for the $2.25 million Group 1 2013 BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on April 6.


Pierro is one of 63 nominations for the BMW

The two-year-old triple crown winner’s longest trip to date was 2040m when he finished third in the Cox Plate in October.

While being stretched to 2400m remains a possibility for Pierro, the horse who ended his unbeaten reign in the Caulfield Guineas, All Too Hard, was not nominated.

Pierro is one of 12 gallopers from Waterhouse’s stable to be nominated with fellow three-year-olds Proisir and Indianapolis joining the stable star.

Other key Waterhouse-trained entrants include Melbourne Cup runner-up Fiorente and Group 1 winner Glencadam Gold.

Leading Victorian trainer Peter Moody has nominated star import Manighar who took out the event last year.

The BMW was one of three Group 1s the former French galloper won during a stunning autumn campaign.

Another strong entrant from the Moody stable is four-year-old Vatuvei who won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup during the spring.

As is standard with Australian staying races, there is no shortage of quality imports included in nominations and one of the big guns is Puissance De Lune.

The Darren Weir-trained entire is favourite to win the 2013 Melbourne Cup after some outstanding late spring performances.

A son of Shamardal, the five-year-old won the Bendigo Cup by eight lengths before heading to the city to take out the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes by five lengths.

Chris Waller’s recent stable addition Gatewood also represents the imports.

The OTI-owned entire stepped out on Australian soil under John Gosden last year and won the Group 3 Geelong Cup.

Other notable BMW entrants include New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel, Sydney Cup winner Niwot, Queensland Oaks winner Quintessential and Melbourne Cup fourth Kelinni.
