2019 winner Mystic Journey was the first nomination received for the 2021 All-Star Mile, to be held at Moonee Valley on March 13th.
Trainer Adam Trinder is happy with the way the star mare is travelling, with connections expected to start her off slowly for her autumn preparation in Tasmania, before coming to Melbourne.

“That’s the plan of attack with her,” Trinder said of The All-Star Mile.
“She’s back in training, been back in 10 days now. She will kick off in the back end of January in the Ladbrokes Stakes, a weight-for-age 1200-metre (race) here in Tassie.
“Then we will move forward to The All-Star Mile, if she can gain the votes. We will just assess off the back of her first run whether she totally preps in Tassie … or whether she looks to head to a Futurity in February.
“We will get more clarity throughout the month of January, I would suggest.”
“She stopped and went out in really good order and good form, so I trust she will come back in the same vein.”
Other nominations received include Personal, Aysar, Crosshaven, Fifty Stars, and So Si Bon.
Nominations for the 2021 All-Star Mile will close on January 11th, with the public voting period spanning from January 22nd until February 19th.
