Aeronautical Flies Up Golden Rose 2011 Odds


Aeronautical has firmed in Golden Rose betting after winning The Rosebud

Lionel Cohens’ well-bred three-year-old Aeronautical scored a stunning victory in The Rosebud last Saturday, storming into contention for the 2011 Golden Rose and firming dramatically in the futures betting for the opening Group 1 race of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Encosta De Lago gelding Aeronautical was coming off their maiden career win at Randwick back on July 9 and showed they were a genuine Group 1 chance with a blistering three and a half length victory in the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) making it two from two at Randwick this prep.

Ridden by Nathan Berry, Aeronautical ($6) easily accounted for their eight rivals including the Peter Snowden-trained Bello ($8) who ran second, while David Payne’s Queenian was a further half length back to finish off The Rosebud trifecta.

The Hawkes-trained Chivvy was the disappointment of the race, starting the $3.50 favourite before finishing nearly 12 lengths away ninth in failing to beat home any other runners.

Before their Rosebud success, the emerging Aeronautical was rated a $26 chance in the Golden Rose odds at Luxbet.

They have now firmed dramatically into $11 to become the Golden Rose winner trailing likely non-acceptor Sepoy ($4), Anthony Cummings’ untapped star Smart Missile ($4.40), dual Group 1 winner Helmet ($5.50) and the John O’Shea-trained Foxwedge ($10) in the Luxbet Golden Rose betting markets.

Saturday’s victory was also the maiden stakes success as a trainer for former South African breeder-owner Cohen, 50.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet, his win last start was very special for me being my first city winner as a trainer and I enjoyed that a lot, and this today is so special as well,” Cohen said on Saturday.

“Just the manner in which he won and the fact he was able to repeat his last win.

“I’m just taking it in at the moment and the future is still ahead of us.

“I thought I might have had him a touch underdone for today and I didn’t want to get ahead of myself.

“I just wanted to get enough done for today and the way he put them to bed was impressive.”

The $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) is scheduled to run at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 10 and Cohen said that he would likely give Aeronautical one more run in the lead-up to the feature.

“I would probably want him to have another run but I’ll see where I want to run him,” he said.

Aeronautical has now won back more than his purchase price in prize money, Saturday’s win boosting his earnings to $124,140.

The now locally Rosehill-based Cohen secured the horse for $100,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales last year.

Berry, who enjoyed his first black type win since becoming a senior rider, was equally impressed with Aeronautical’s tremendous turn of foot and tipped him as a Group 1 horse in the making.

“He is a serious contender I think,” Berry said in regards to Aeronautical and the Golden Rose.

“Just in the fact that he still has a lot of improvement left in him.

“The best thing about this horse is that he doesn’t know anything. He’s running on raw ability.

“It’s my first stakes win as a senior rider and it’s good to get it on such an impressive horse.”
