Fiveandahlafstar has won three of his 16 career starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The three-year-old placed second in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes last start by a head to Mulaazem and will be out to go one better in the 2013 Autumn Classic.

Fiveandahalfstar will be second-up for the autumn racing carnival in the race, after an impressive spring campaign in 2012.

The Hotel Grand gelding won the Group 1 Victoria Derby at Flemington Racecourse on November 3 by a convincing one and a half lengths.

Also included in the 2013 Autumn Classic nominations is Super Cool, who placed third in the Autumn Stakes last start.

Super Cool won the Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase last spring before placing second in the Victoria Derby behind Fiveandahalfstar.

The gelding has won two of his seven race starts and has earned close to $500,000 in prize money so far.

Hvasstan and Subiaso are also included in the 2013 Autumn Classic nominations.
