Americain Deserving Favourite – BMW 2012

Americain will start as favourite in this Saturday’s prestigious 2012 BMW (2400m) and the seven-year-old start import has the record to justify it.


Americain will start as favourite in The BMW this Saturday

Currently paying $2.10 at, the former Melbourne Cup winner has recorded 11 wins from 29 starts and has amassed more than $5.4 million in career prize money.

The David Hayes-trained horse is coming off a third-place effort to Manighar in the Australian Cup (2000m) on March 10 and gets his chance to exact revenge when they go head to head in race five at Rosehill this Saturday.

He should be well rested heading into the race and will benefit from extra distance provided by the BMW, having won at 2400 metres on three (once at 2406m) occasions.

It will be an impressive victory if the US horse can take top honours on Saturday after he drew the widest barrier of the 10-horse field earlier this week.

The team have done the hard work for you ahead of the feature Rosehill race, delivering the stats that matter and crucial reasons to back or sack Americain.
