Nominations have been released for the Group 1 Flight Stakes, which is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday October 6, 2012.
Just 10 fillies have nominated for a start in the 2012 Flight Stakes, including John Thompson’s Longport.
Longport has won three of her five race starts and has earned more than $180,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
The Casino Prince filly won her last start in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes at Royal Randwick on protest, despite fellow Flight Stakes nominee Norzita being first passed the post originally.
Norzita will be looking to turn the tables on Longport in the 2012 Flight Stakes this weekend.
The Thorn Park filly has won one of her five race starts and has earned more than $100,000 in prize money.
Prior to being relegated to second in the Tea Rose Stakes last start, Norzita placed second in the TVN Jockeys Trust for three-year-olds at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.
Trained by Bart Cummings, Norzita is nominated for the Group 1 Crown Oaks and Thousand Guineas later in the spring racing carnival.
Dear Demi is also amongst the nominations for the 2012 Flight Stakes.
The Dehere filly has won three of her 11 race starts and has earned more than $360,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
Dear Demi won the Group 2 Furious Stakes this spring, before placing fourth in the Tea Rose Stakes last start.
Flying Snitzel, Urban Groove, and Jade Marauder are also included in the 2012 Flight Stakes nominations.
