2012 Doomben Cup Nominations

April 26th, 2012

The field for the 2012 Doomben Cup is shaping up nicely with the possibility of a rematch between current staying powerhouses Manighar and Americain on the cards after both horses were nominated.

The Group 1 Doomben Cup (2,020m) is one of the premier staying events of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, so it is no surprise that it has attracted a total of 45 nominations from quality horses.

Melbourne Cup winners Americain and Efficient have been nominated, as well as current star stayer and multiple Group 1 winner Manighar. Recent Autumn winners Western Symbol and Mawingo are also in the mix.

Veteran galloper Scenic Shot has also been nominated and will be looking for a third Doomben Cup win after previously taking the race out in 2009 and 2011.

This year’s Doomben Cup will be run on Saturday 19 May 2012 at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane.
