Octane Flyer has won two of his five race starts and has earned more than $100,000 in prize money during his short horse racing career.

The Statue Of Liberty colt won his most recent start in the $50,000 Gallipoli Medical Research handicap for two-year-olds at Eagle farm on April 20, 2013, and will be out to do the same in the 2013 Champagne Classic.

Earlier this campaign, Octane Flyer placed an impressive second against some of the country’s best two-year-olds in the Group 3 Skyline Stakes at Warwick Farm Racecourse in March.

Trained by Kelly Schweida at Eagle Farm, Octane Flyer will have the home track advantage in the 2013 Champagne Classic this weekend.

Also included in the 2013 Champagne Classic nominations is Vilanova, who will be having his first race start for Chris Waller in the race.

Originally trained by Jason Bridgeman in New Zealand, Vilanova has won one of his four race starts and has earned more than $65,000 in prize money.

Vilanova’s only win came in the Listed Wentwood Grange Stakes last December, and he will be looking to claim his second Black Type in the 2013 Champagne Classic this Saturday.

Architect and Bound For Earth are also included in the 2013 Champagne Classic nominations.
