Nominations have been released for the Group 1 The Metropolitan, which is scheduled to take place at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday October 5, 2013.
A total of 105 horses have nominated for the 2013 The Metropolitan, including Green Moon.
Green Moon has won seven of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $5 million in prize money
The Montjeu entire won last year’s $6.2 million Melbourne Cup and will once again be aimed at the race in the 2013 spring racing carnival.
Green Moon is trained by Robert Hickmott at Mt Macedon and will be making his spring racing return in the 2013 Memsie Stakes this weekend at Caulfield Racecourse.
Also included in the 2013 The Metropolitan nominations is Sea Moon.
Sea Moon has won five of his nine race starts and has earned more than $500,000 in prize money.
The five-year-old has had all his previous race starts in Europe, with his most recent being in the Group 1 Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe in October last year.
He has now been transferred to Australia to be trained by Hickmott, who also trains Green Moon.
Sea Moon is nominated for the 2013 Cox Plate and 2013 Caulfield Cup later in the carnival and will likely nominate for the 2013 Melbourne Cup.
Hawkspur and Kelinni are also included in the 2013 The Metropolitan nominations.
