There is a lot of excitement surrounding the 2012 Regal Roller Stakes, with lots of quality horses making the trip to Caulfield this weekend. This 1200 metre race features 21 nominations, with a few horses having a good chance to make history and join the past winners list. The Regal Roller Stakes is a fairly new addition to the circuit, starting out only in 2010 at Caulfield. The winner of the first race was Jeuneyman, with Bel Sprinter taking the prize in 2011.
|Year||Winner||Second place||Third place||Time|

This year’s Regal Roller Stakes will feature plenty of quality, including multiple Group 1 winner Yosei, unbeaten four-year-old Lucky Penny, and the promising gelding Moment Of Change who is trained by Peter Moody. The four-year-old has won three of six starts and finished third in both the Group 2 Royal Sovreign Stakes and the Hobartville Stakes earlier this year, making him one of the leading favourites to take the 2012 prize.
