2012 Queensland Derby Nominations Announced

April 27th, 2012

Nominations have been released for the 2012 Queensland Derby, which is due to run at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 9, 2012.

A total of 135 three-year-olds have nominated for a run in the 2012 Queensland Derby, including Reigning.

The three-year-old colt has won three of his 11 race starts and has earned more than $45,000 in prize money.

Reigning won the Bathurst Cup two starts back on February 26, 2012, before finishing a disappointing ninth at Randwick’s Kensington track last start in a 1,300 metre race.

Trainer Con Karakatsanis is not fazed by the Choisir colt’s last start defeat, understanding he is best over a longer distance.

“He’s got one thing in his favour and that is he’ll stay all day,” Karakatsanis said.

“The horse is on the way up and he’s only going to keep improving so you’ve got to have a crack (at the Derby).

“In those type of races I don’t think the best horse wins.

“It’s the ones who have that little bit of ability who can stay all day.”

Strike The Stars is also included in the 2012 Queensland Derby nominations.

The Savabeel gelding finished fourth in his last start in the Group 1 Australian Derby at Royal Randwick on April 14, 2012.

Strike The Stars has won one of his 12 race starts and has earned more than $400,000 in prize money.

Rahveel and Niconoise are also included in the 2012 Queensland Derby nominations.
