Spring Stakes 2013 Receives 25 Nominations

Nominations have been released for the Group 3 Spring Stakes, which is due to run at Newcastle Racecourse next Wednesday September 18, 2013.

A total of 25 horses have nominated for the $150,000 race, including Fuerza.

Fuerza has won one of his 10 race starts and has earned more than $235,000 in prize money during his career.

The three-year-old finished second by a nose to Guelph in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes during the autumn, however, only won his first race at Newcastle last start.

Trained by Bjorn Baker at Warwick Farm Racecourse, Fuerza will be looking to finally claim his debut Black Type win in the 2013 Spring Stakes.

Fuerza is also nominated for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas at Caulfield on October 12, 2013.

Another young galloper to feature in the 2013 Spring Stakes nominations is Vilanova.

Vilanova has won one of his nine race starts and has earned more than $170,000 in prize money.

The Commands colt placed 10th in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality last start and will be out to reclaim his winning form in the 2013 Spring Stakes.

Vilanova is trained by Chris Waller at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse and is nominated for the 2013 Caulfield Guineas and Cox Plate later in the spring.

Aussies Love Sport, who has accepted for a run in the $1 million Golden Rose this weekend, is also amongst the 2013 Spring Stakes nominations.
