Quality 2012 Cockram Stakes Nominations Announced

August 13th, 2012

A quality 24-horse nominations list, headed by multiple Group 1 winner Yosei, has been announced ahead of Saturday’s Group 3 2012 Cockram Stakes (1200m).

Trained by Stuart Webb, Yosei will be starting her spring campaign in the mares only event, with the five-year-old last seen running third in the Doncaster Mile.

Joining the three-time Group 1 winner in Cockram Stakes nominations is in-form mare Avoid Lightning who will be chasing a fifth consecutive victory.

The lightly-raced Adelaide four-year-old secured the first stakes victory of her career last start when winning the Listed Lightning Stakes at Morphetville.

Undefeated mare Lucky Penny is due to make her return and is one of two nominations for Peter Morgan.

Morgan has also nominated Oasis Bloom who he believes could be a cups contender in 2013.

Multiple stakes winner Hi Belle is another entered to make her return, with the six-year-old last seen in an autumn campaign that featured a victory in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes.

Other horses nominated for the Cockram Stakes include Peter Moody quartet Le Societe, One Last Dance, Total Attraction and Never Forget.
