The Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) nominations will be announced March 16, 2022.

This page will be updated following the nominations release. Below are the nominations from 2021.


Former Tiarnna Robertson-trained six-year-old grey mare Fabergino has joined leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller. A winner of 12 races from 19 starts, Fabergino proved too good in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap (1000m) at her last start. She was fourth in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) two starts ago.

Waller has also entered Fiesta and Haut Brion Her for The Galaxy.

Haut Brion Her will be first up from a spell if she runs; the five-year-old mare ran fifth in The Everest (1200m) and second in the Yes Yes Yes Stakes (1300m).

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained three-year-old colt Wild Ruler is another key entry for The Galaxy. He won the Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) last start and was third in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) during the spring.
