Record 276 Nominations Taken for 2015 Thousand Guineas

A record 276 nominations have been taken for the 2015 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse on October 10th; officially breaking the mark set by the 2009 edition by six three-year-old fillies.

Interestingly, only one horse to have broken through for a maiden win at the highest level as a two-year-old has been included in 2015 Thousand Guineas nominations; the Peter Moody-trained Pasadena Girl.

Posting an impressive three wins from only four competitive starts so far, Pasadena Girl more than stamped her claims as one to watch when debuting for a comfortable win in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) on February 21st; repeating the dose in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) three weeks later.

Unlucky to be blocked for a run late in the running of the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) and fourth on Day 1 of The Championships, the daughter of Savabeel responded in the best way possible in her most recent start; mustering a big turn of foot to take out the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) on April 18th.

Moody has entered a total of six fillies in 2015 Thousand Guineas nominations, including both Altamira and Beachley who have each contested only one competitive start so far.

Chris Waller saddled Amicus to success in the 2014 edition of the Thousand Guineas and has also included six fillies in 2015 nominations, including Laucala and Sebring Sally.

Laucala is yet to finish outside the first three through her short but competitive career so far, and placed a credible third behind the likes of blue blood Helford River in the All Too Hard @ Vinery Handicap (1200m) last time out.

Sebring Sally clearly needed the run when fifth in a Moonee Valley minor over 1000m on debut but responded well in taking out the Vobis Two-Year-Old Plate (1200m) with ease last time out.

Team Hawkes are spoiled for choice with talented three-year-olds leading into the 2015 Spring Carnival and have nominated twelve fillies for the Group 1 Thousand Guineas, including consistent top level performer Lake Geneva.

Debuting to racing for second in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on January 31st, Lake Geneva was given little chance for success in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in late February but boxed on for an impressive third.

Again considered no real chance in the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), the talented daughter of Fastnet Rock proved she is one of her age-group’s leading fillies when running on for third.

Having returned to the paddock after placing third in the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) on April 11th, Lake Geneva has reportedly taken huge benefit from her time in the paddock and will lay a great account for herself in any Spring Carnival target she is set.

The recent Brisbane Winter Carnival unearthed several impressive spring prospects, including a particularly exciting one for Liam Birchley in Blueberry Hill.

Blueberry Hill jogged home to win a Doomben minor over 1050m on debut in February; continuing her perfect career start through the 2.y.o Handicap (1200m) on the Sunshine Coast before placing a close second to Big Tree in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) on April 25th.

Returning to the winner’s circle with undoubtedly her most impressive performance to date in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) on May 9th, the daughter of Myboycharlie again placed second to Look To The Stars in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) before a luckless run for sixth in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) last time out on June 6th.
