2012 Challenge Stakes 2012 – Nominations & Weights

March 27th, 2012

Nominations have been released for the 2012 Challenge Stakes, which is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday March 31, 2012.

Hay List is one of the 12 horses nominated for the 2012 Challenge Stakes.

The six-year-old gelding finished second last start behind Foxwedge in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes.

Hay List won his previous start in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap by a nose over Buffering.

The Statue Of Liberty gelding will be looking to turn things around when he lines up for the 2012 Challenge Stakes at Rosehill this weekend.

Hay List has won 15 of his 23 race starts and has earned more than $2.54 million in prize money.

Rain Affair is also nominated for the 2012 Challenge Stakes.

Trainer Joseph Pride is looking forward to meeting Hay List once again in the 2012 Challenge Stakes after finishing sixth behind him in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap earlier this month.

“He’s come through the Melbourne experience well,” Pride said.

“There’s been no change in his attitude which is good.

“I don’t like to see too much change in horses. He is still quite bullish around the place and a little bit stroppy and hard to handle. That’s him.

“You wouldn’t want to see him any other way.

“I’m kind of a looking forward to a rematch with Hay List if we can get it.”

Master Od Design, Winter King, Satin Shoes and Elite Falls are also included in the 2012 Challenge Stakes nominations.
