Samaready to Shoot for Golden Rose 2012

Mick Price’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner Samaready is close to returning to work ahead of the spring where the smart filly is likely to contest the 2012 Golden Rose in Sydney.


Blue Diamond Stakes winner Samaready is headed towards the 2012 Golden Rose this spring

Currently in pre-training ahead of the new racing season the More Than Ready two-year-old enjoyed a brilliant opening campaign winning four of her five starts earning over $1.2 million in prize money.

A debut win at Flemington in December was followed by a three and a half length romp in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) before Samaready hit the big time with another impressive three length success, this time in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

She went on to win her Sydney debut in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) but then failed to emulate the great Sepoy in winning the Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper double.

Samaready did contest the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) but could only manage to finish two lengths away third behind Gai Waterhouse’s brilliant colt Pierro.

Now the Caulfield-based Price is eyeing another golden Group 1 for his star filly, the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 15, 2012 during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Price is also looking at the Golden Rose this year for Samaready’s Blue Diamond Preview winning stablemate Malasun who was last seen finishing sixth in the BD Prelude.

“I’d like to think the Golden Rose would be a good race for them, especially Samaready,” Price said.

“Samaready has already gone to Rosehill and done the job there before and I think 1400 metres is good for her.”

There is also a chance Samaready will continue onto the riches of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival including the $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at her home Caulfield track on Wednesday October 17, 2012.

Price was a little concerned how she would step up to the mile however and was happy to concentrate on the more lucrative Golden Rose at this stage.

“There’s a small question about her at 1600 (metres),” he said.

“That race (the Thousand Guineas) is worth half a million whereas there’s not much of a query about 1400 metres with her and the Golden Rose is worth double the prizemoney.

“It makes sense.”
