2012 Expressway Stakes Attracts 15 Nominations

February 6th, 2012

The Group 2 Expressway Stakes is set to run at Rosehill racecourse this Saturday February 11, 2012, and here you will find the nominations for the race.

Manawanui is one of 15 horses to nominate for the $200,000 Expressway Stakes.

The three-year-old will be first-up in the race after an incredibly successful spring that saw him win a variety of races including the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes.

Trainer Ron Leemon will make his decision on whether or not to run Manawanui in the 2012 Expressway Stakes after he competes in a barrier trail tomorrow morning.

”The barrier trial will be his major piece of work before his first-up run and it will help me decide whether to go to the Expressway or wait a week for the Royal Sovereign,” Leemon said.

”I’m looking at races like the Hobartville and Randwick Guineas with him, and if he goes all right in those he would go to the George Ryder and Doncaster.”

Essington, Danleigh, Centennial Park and Rangirangdoo are also included in the 2012 Expressway Stakes nominations.
