Hollindale Stakes 2012 – Nominations Released

May 1st, 2012

Nominations have been released for the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast racecourse this Saturday May 5, 2012.

21 horses have been nominated for the race, including Chris Waller’s Foreteller.

Foreteller has won four of his 12 race starts and has earned more than $260,000 in prize money.

The Dansili gelding finished sixth in his most recent start on the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude at Royal Randwick racecourse on April 14, 2012.

Foreteller is Waller’s only representative in the 2012 Hollindale Stakes this weekend, where he will be on trial for a 2012 Doomben Cup campaign.

“Foreteller is the only definite horse I’ll have at the Gold Coast at this stage,” Waller said.

“He’s being aimed for the Doomben Cup but I want to see how he goes in the Hollindale first.”

Anthony Freedman will also test the waters with his new stable addition Mawingo in the 2012 Hollindale Stakes.

Mawingo had his first start for Freedman in the $70,000 Muscular Dystrophy Australia Plate Open Handicap at Flemington Racecourse on April 14, 2012, which he won by an impressive two lengths.

The four-year-old was imported from Germany, where he won at Group level in Munich.

Michael Moroney has also nominated both Viking Hero and Wall Street for the 2012 Hollindale Stakes.

Viking Hero finished second in the Group 3 Easter Cup last start and is looking to claim his first win since November, 2010, in the 2012 Hollindale Stakes.

Wall Street will be out to improve on his disappointing 18th place finish in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile last start.

The Montjeu gelding has won 11 of his 32 race starts and has earned more than $1.7 million in prize money.
