Nominations – Australian Oaks 2012

March 13th, 2012

Nominations have been announced for the Group 1 Australian Oaks, which are due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse on April 21, 2012.

64 three-year-old fillies have been nominated for the race, including She Goes To Rio.

She Goes To Rio won her most recent start in the Listed Canberra Guineas last Sunday and trainer Anthony Cummings has no doubts she will continue to improve as she moves towards her 2012 Australian Oaks start.

”Every time she has stepped out over a bit more ground she has been more impressive,” Cummings said.

”She’s a very progressive filly and if I get what I expected when I first saw her she’ll turn up on Oaks day and be hard to beat.”

She Goes To Rio has won four of her five race starts and has earned more than $120,000 in prize money.

Empress Rock is also included in the 2012 Australian Oaks nominations.

The three-year-old won the Group 2 Kewney Stakes last start and appears in top form this autumn.

Empress Rock has won two of her five race starts and has earned more than $225,000 in prize money,

The Fastnet Rock filly is trained by Bart Cummings at Randwick, which will be the setting for her 2012 Australian Oaks bid.

Mosheen and Bliss Street are also included in the 2012 Australian Oaks nominations.
