Nominations and weights have been released for the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes, which is due to run at Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday night March 16, 2012.
16 horses have accepted to run in the $200,000 race, including Mick Price’s Proliferate.
Proliferate was also nominated for the Group 1 Randwick Guineas in Sydney the following day, however, trainer Mick Price felt the competition was too fierce.
“We entered him for the Randwick Guineas on Saturday but against Manawanui and those horses he would get flogged,” Price said.
“He’s a stayer and last start he should have run over 1800 (metres) then in the Alister Clark instead of trying to win a Group One mile which came unstuck.
“Going from a mile to 2040 metres on Friday night may catch me short with him but with a view to where we should be going it is the right race.
“It is 13 days between runs coming from a mile but I’m happy with him and he’s a clean winded horse.”
Proliferate has won three of his five race starts and has earned more than $155,000 in prize money.
The More Than Ready colt finished seventh in his last start in the Group 1 Australian Guineas behind Mosheen on March 3, 2012.
Prior to that, Proliferate finished second to Pied A Terre un the Group 2 Autumn Stakes.
