Nominations have been released for the Group 2 Autumn Classic, which is due to run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 23, 2013.
12 horses are included in the 2013 Futurity Stakes nominations, including Fiveandahalfstar.
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.
