Nominations and weights have been released for the 2013 Adealide Cup, which is due to run at Morphettville Racecourse on Monday March 11, 2013.
A total of 30 horses are nominated for the $400,000 race, including Talent Show.
Talent Show has won five of her 31 race starts and has earned more than $435,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
The six-year-old won the Group 2 Perth Cup two starts back by almost a length at Ascot Racecourse in Western Australia.
Talent Show then went on to place fifth in the Listed Detonator Stakes at the same track on February 16, 2013.
The Jeune mare has been given 57 kilograms for the 2013 Adelaide Cup.
Trainer Graeme Ballantyne revealed that Talent Show has arrived in Adelaide from Western Australia, where she will run in the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes this weekend.
“We are up in the hills with bush tracks and the beach is about 20km away. It is similar to what we have at home,” Ballantyne said.
“We probably won’t go to the track (Morphettville) because she can do her fast work on the rolling hills here.”
“I thought she would get around 56kg or 57kg.
“She is up a few kilos, but I think the extra distance in the Lord Reims and the cup will suit her because staying is her game,” Ballantyne said.
Titch and Tuscan Fire are also included in the 2013 Adelaide Cup nominations.
