Strong nominations for 2012 Birdsville carnival


18 nominations for the XXXX Gold Birdsville Cup headline a number of strong racing fields for the 2012 Birdsville Carnival. A total of 27 trainers will be travelling from across the country and as far away as Darwin to challenge for the sought after prize of a win at Birdsville. The 13 race card has received a total of 191 nominations for what promises to be a competitive meet.


2011 Cup winner Just A Touch is returning to become only the 4th horse in 50 years to win back to back Birdsville Cups. This task will be no simple feat with Broken Hill cup winner Lotto Blues and Roma Cup winner Dancefloor Prodigy also nominated for the 2012 feature.
