2012 Sydney Cup – Nominations Released

March 14th, 2012

Nominations have been released for the Group 1 Sydney Cup, which is scheduled to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday April 28, 2012.

A total of 81 horses have been nominated for the 2012 Sydney Cup next month, including Peter Moody’s Manighar.

Manighar won the Group 1 Australian Cup last start by a nose ahead of Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed.

The six-year-old gelding has excelled since transferring to Moody’s Caulfield stables after spending the majority of his career in Europe under the care of Luca Cumani.

Manighar has now had three starts for Moody, winning the Group 3 Carlyon Cup first-up, before finishing a gallant third to Lucas Cranach in the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes on February 25, 2012.

Moody is excited about Manighar’s chances in the 2012 Sydney Cup.

”I’ve won plenty of derbies and oaks races and obviously quite a few sprint race Group 1s but I’ve never had this type of horse before,” Moody said.

”I’ve just never had a really good weight-for-age stayer so this is something new and something I could get used to.”

Manighar has earned close to $1.3 million in his Australian starts alone and has won eight og his 25 career starts.

Wall Street is also included in the 2012 Sydney Cup nominations.

The seven-year-old gelding finished third in the group 2 Blamey Stakes last start and a first-up sixth placing in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes.

Wall Street has won 11 of his 30 race starts and as eared more than $1.6 million in prize money.

Norsqui, Niwot and Scarlett Lady are also included in the 2012 Sydney Cup nominations.
