Frank Packer Plate 2012 – Nominations Announced

April 23rd, 2012

Nominations have been released for the 2012 Frank Packer Plate, which is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.

Included in the 2012 Frank Packer Plate nominations is Fat Al, who won the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes at Royal Randwick last start.

The three-year-old gelding has won four of his six race starts and has earned more than $140,000 in prize money.

Fat Al has won both his race starts this preparation and will be looking to step up to Group 2 level for the first time in his horse racing career.

“He’s a very good horse,” trainer Gai Waterhouse said about his last start win.

“He toyed with them. He sat second and when Nash (Rawiller) pressed the ‘go fast’ button he just did exactly that.

“I love the way he just cruised to the lead and won effortlessly.”

Jockey Nash Rawiller has no qualms with stepping Fat Al up to 2,000 metres in the 2012 Frank Packer Plate this Saturday.

“I would put him up to 2000 metres, there’s no reason why not,” Rawiller said.

“He was strong to the line today.”

Anthony Cummings’ Strike The Stars is also included in the 2012 Frank Packer Plate nominations.

The three-year-old finished fourth in the Group 1 Australian Derby last start and has won one of his 12 race starts.

Despite only posting one win, the Savabeel gelding has won more than $400,000 in prize money.
