Nominations have been released for the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic, which is due to run at Eagle Farm racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.
29 horses have nominated for a run in the race, including Gerald Ryan’s Angel Of Mercy.
The three-year-old filly has won one of her seven race starts and has earned more than $68,000 in prize money during her short career.
Angel Of Mercy finished sixth in her last start in the Listed PJ Bell Stakes at Canterbury Racecourse on April 13, 2012, after finishing seventh in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes in her previous start.
Prior to that, Angel Of Mercy placed third in the Group 3 The Vanity at Flemington behind Shopaholic and Mosheen.
Angel Of Mercy was purchased for $180,000 from the 2010 Gold Coast Yearling Sale and is now trained at Rosehill Racecourse by Gerald Ryan.
Also included in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic is Peter Moody’s Huegill.
Huegill has won two of his 11 race starts and has earned close to $150,000 in prize money.
The three-year-old colt finished 14th in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes last start and will be looking to get his form back when he competes in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic.
The More Than Ready colt had his best Group results when placing third in both the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude for colts and geldings in 2011 and the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas last spring.
Peppered Black and Boys On Tour are also included in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic nominations.
