Nominations have been released for the Group 1 Australian Guineas, which will take place at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday March 1, 2014.
A total of 85 three-year-olds have nominated for a run in the $500,000 event, including Shamus Award.
Shamus Award was the first maidener to win the $3 million Cox Plate last October and will now look to be the first horse to win the Cox Plate and Australian Guineas double.
The three-year-old has won just one of his 10 race starts but has earned more than $2.06 million in prize money during his career.
Shamus Award is trained by Danny O’Brien at Flemington Racecourse ad will have the home track advantage in the 2014 Australian Guineas.
Also included in the 2014 Australian Guineas nominations is Polanski.
Polanski won his last three race starts, with the most recent being in the Group 1 Victoria Derby on November 2.
Prior to his three length Victoria Derby victory, Polanski claimed a win in both the Listed UCI Stakes and the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes during the spring racing carnival.
Polanski is trained by Robbie Laing at Cranbourne and is more than familiar with Flemington’s track going into the race.
The Rakti colt has won four of his nine race starts and has earned more than $1,16 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
Criterion and Gregers are also included in the 2014 Australian Guineas nominations.
