2012 Oakleigh Plate – Nominations & Weights

February 21st, 2012

The Group 1 Oakleigh Plate is due to run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 25, 2012, and here you will find the nominations and weights for the race.

Included in the nominations is Sepoy, who has been given top weight of 58 kilograms for the race.

Trainer Peter Snowden is unsure whether the weight is too heavy for Sepoy so early on in his horse racing career.

”He may run but it all depends on the weights,” he said.

”I’ll discuss it with the boys, whether we want to go there or not.

”He is a colt with a great record and I do want to run the horse, but they tell me he is going to get 58 kilograms.

“He is a three-year-old; it is a savage ask.”

Sepoy has won ten of his 11 race starts and has earned close to $3.8 million in prize money.

Also included in the 2012 Oakleigh Plate nominations is Bel Sprinter, who won the Listed WJ Adams Stakes last start.

Trainer Jason Warren is looking forward to testing Sepoy’s ability in the race.

“This is the race my horse has been set for, whereas Sepoy is being aimed at a feature race in Dubai over a month away. It’s got to be an advantage,” Warren said.

“It’s a good time to have a crack at Sepoy (if he runs).

“I’m looking forward to it. My horse is going to be at his peak while Sepoy might need a run or two, considering his main goal is in Dubai.”

Bel Sprinter has won five of his six race starts and gas earned more than $250,000 in prize money.
