Zipping Classic 2011 – Nominations Released

November 8th, 2011

Nine horses have been nominated for the Group 2 Zipping Classic, which is due to run at Sandown Racecourse this Saturday November 12, 2011.

Included in the 2011 Zipping Classic nominations is Americain, who finished fourth in the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

Americain, who won last year’s Melbourne Cup, sprinted home to finish just 1.5 lengths off the winner in this year’s race after being caught in an unfavourable position coming into the home turn.

The six-year-old is said to have pulled up well from his Melbourne Cup run and will now drop back to 2,400 metres in the 2011 Zipping Classic.

David Vandyke’s Lamasery also features in the 2011 Zipping Classic nominations.

Lamasery won the Listed Jonnie Walker Stakes at Flemington Racecourse on Melbourne Cup Day and is in top from ahead of his Zipping Classic 2011 start.

The Commands gelding has won ten of his 17 race starts and has earned close to $450,000 in prize money.

Also included in the 2011 Zipping Classic nominations are Mourayan, Manighar and Saptapadi.
