Premiere Stakes 2012 – Nominations

October 2nd, 2012

Nominations have been released for the Group 2 Premiere Stakes, which is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday October 6, 2012.

A total of 14 horses have been nominated for the $200,000 race, including Rain Affair.

Rain Affair will be having his second spring race start in the 2012 Premiere Stakes after posting a disappointing performance first-up.

The five-year-old placed fourth in the Group 3 Concorde Stakes at Warwick Farm, where he was the odds-on favourite.

Rain Affair then went on to win a trial by five lengths at the same course on September 28, proving to trainer Joseph Pride that he is capable of taking out some of the top spring features this campaign.

The Commands gelding has won 11 of his 16 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

Rain Affair is nominated for the Group 1 Manikato Stakes and Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic.

Also included in the 2012 Premiere Stakes nominations is New South Wales Horse of The Year Streama.

Streama has won six of her 14 race starts and has earned more than $1.14 million in prize money during her career.

The Stratum mare finished third behind More Joyous in the Listed Sheraco Stakes last start and will be hoping to go two better in the 2012 Premiere Stakes this weekend.

Satin Shoes, Pear Tart and Red Tracer are also included in the 2012 Premiere Stakes nominations.
