2015 Eskimo Prince Stakes Nominations Released

Just 10 sprinters were nominated for the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on Monday, which means nominations have been extended until 11:00am Tuesday morning.

The smaller field takes nothing away from the class however, with the likes of Scissor Kick, Delectation, and Kermadec all set to resume racing in the $150,000 Eskimo Prince Stakes on the eve of the autumn carnival.

As is usual in Sydney racing, local trainer Chris Waller dominates the nominations with four horses to his name – Delectation, Harrier Jet, Kermadec, and Quick Strike.

Waller has high hopes for three-year-old gelding Delectation, who scored a surprise second place in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) back in November. It was an excellent run from the gelding in his first Group One appearance, missing out on victory just one and a quarter lengths to stable mate Brazen Beau.

The trainer has ambitious plans for Delectation in the autumn, nominating the gelding for both the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) and Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) in March, with Waller unsure of his ability over the mile.

“The whole of his last preparation was spent trying to get him to switch off,” Waller told Sky Racing.

“He is now starting to come of age mentally and his Coolmore placing shows what is capable of doing.

“But whether he is a sprinter or can be stretched to a mile, I’m still not sure.”

Harrier Jet has placed in seven of his nine career starts, however the 2015 Eskimo Prince Stakes would be his first black-type race if the gelding accepts in Wednesday’s final field.

Lightly raced Kermadec has finished in the first two in all three of his starts, which includes winning the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) on November 1, while Quick Strike only won his maiden two starts ago.

Waller may have the most horses nominated for the Eskimo Prince Stakes but Paul Messara only needs one – Scissor Kick.

The three-year-old colt headlines the race after a dominate spring campaign that saw him win two black-type races and finish runner-up in another two.

Scissor Kick was a fast finishing second in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) and earned his place in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at the end of the carnival, however the colt wasn’t able to go with the leaders and weakened away to ninth place.

David Payne has nominated $1 million Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) runner Bold Circle, who finished eighth in the Gold Coast race on January 10 while Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) runner-up Diamond Valores has been nominated by Peter & Paul Snowden.
