Pierro has won all six of his previous race starts and has earned close to $3 million in prize money.

The Lonhro colt has will resume this weekend in the Group 3 Run To The Rose at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on his way to the Group 1 Golden Rose on September 15, 2012.

Also included in the 2012 Spring Champion Stakes is Toydini, who placed second in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes last start.

The Bernardini colt has won one of his seven race starts and has earned just over $90,000 in prize money.

Toydini has consistently performed at the top level of racing, placing a gallant fourth in the Group 1 The TJ Smith at Eagle farm racecourse during the winter carnival.

Trainer Guy Walter is planning a spring preparation that leads to the 2012 Spring Champion Stakes.

“He will go to the Ming Dynasty, the Gloaming and then to the Spring Champion,” Walter said.

“I was really pleased with the way he hit the line (last start).”

Jimando and Kabayan are also included in the 2012 Spring Champion Stakes nominations.
