Sunline Stakes 2013 – Moonee Valley Nominations

March 19th, 2013

Nominations have been released for the 2013 Sunline Stakes, which is set to run at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Friday March 22, 2013.

A total of 17 horses have nominated for the 2013 Sunline Stakes, including Bonaria.

Bonaria has won four of her 20 race starts and has earned more than $264,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.

The Redoute’s Choice mare won her last start in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy at Flemington Racecourse and will be looking to back that victory up with another in the 2013 Sunline Stakes.

Trainer Pat Hyland feels Bonaria has what it takes to win the Group 2 Sunline Stakes this Friday night.

“I’ve always believed she is a very, very nice mare,” Hyland said.

“Especially when she got out to her right distance.”

“She proved herself behind good horses like Mosheen last time in, so I never doubted her.

“She’s improved since then. She just needed the right race and she got that the other day.”

Bonaria is also nominated for the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday in case the rain set in at Moonee Valley.

“If it happened to be wet here and dry in Sydney we’d have a think about running at Rosehill,” her trainer said.

Hi Belle and Lights Of Heaven are also included in the 2013 Sunline Stakes nominations.
