2012 Carlyon Cup – Nominations Released

February 6th, 2012

16 horses have been nominated to run in the 2012 TS Carlyon Cup at Caulfield racecourse this Saturday February 11, 2012.

Amongst the 2012 Carlyon Cup runners is Ranger, who is set to make his east coast debut in the race.

Ranger finished third in this last start in the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes in Perth and will be looking to claim his second Group win.

The Testa Rossa gelding won the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes at Ascot Racecourse and also finished second to Playing God in the Group 1 Kingston Town Stakes last preparation.

The five-year-old gelding has won six of his 19 race starts and has earned more than $520,000 in prize money.

Manighar is also included in the 2012 Carlyon Cup nominations.

The six-year-old gelding finished fifth in the Melbourne Cup last spring before posting a second to Americain in the Group 2 Zipping Classic at Sandown.

Manighar has won six of his 22 race starts and has earned close to $1 million in prize money.

Robert Hickmott’s Green Moon is also included in the 2012 Carlyon Cup nominations.

Green Moon was unable to gain a place in last year’s Melbourne Cup after finishing second to Southern Speed in the Caulfield Cup.

The five-year-old has won four of his 14 race starts and has earned more than $650,000 in prize money.

King Diamond, Macedonian and Rebel Soldier are also included in the 2012 Carlyon Cup nominations.
