Nominations Released – 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes

March 13th, 2012

Nominations have been released for the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes at Royal Randwick racecourse this Saturday March 17, 2012.

Included in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes nominations is Meidung, who is going on towards the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 7, 2012.

The Peter Snowden-trained two-year-old has won $46,000 in prize money and will be hoping to add to that in this weekend’s 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.

The 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes will be Meidung’s Golden Slipper test, with Snowden also testing Limes and Lyric in the 2012 Skyline Stakes on the same day.

”They get their chance to run into the Slipper as well,” Snowden said.

”We know we have at least one runner after today.”

Meidung won her first start in the $70,000 Harvey Norman Handicap on debut by an incredible three lengths, before finishing fifth in her most recent start at Rosehill in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes.

Meidung will carry the set weight of 55.5 kilograms in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes and has ballot number five for the race.

Dear Demi is also included in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes.

The Dehere filly has won one of her four race starts and has earned close to $70,000 in prize money,

Dear Demi scored her first win in the $70,000 The Juniors Handicap at Rosehill Racecourse on February 25, 2012, where she won the 1,200 metre race by almost a length,

The two-year-old was purchased for $130,000 from the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale and is now trained at Warwick Farm by Clarry Conners.

Jade Marauder, Kuchinskaya and Flying Snitzel are also included in the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes nominations.
