2012 Golden Rose First Acceptances Released

First acceptances for the Golden Rose 2012, the headline event of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, were taken by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) this week with 177 horses still heading towards the classic.


2YO Triple Crown champ Pierro is the headline first acceptor for the 2012 Golden Rose

Kicking off Group 1 racing for the 2012-13 Australian Racing Season, the prestigious $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1200m) is scheduled to light up Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 15, 2012.

It is a high class list of hopefuls making up the Golden Rose first acceptances this year with the headliner being Gai Waterhouse’s autumn 2YO Triple Crown winner Pierro.

Sure to dominate Golden Rose betting over the coming months the ace Lonhro colt is undefeated in their stunning six start career to date with their biggest turf triumph being the world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

Pierro went on to also take out the Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes adding the triple crown feather to Waterhouse’s hat.

Waterhouse has paid up for 16 of her current crop of two-year-olds, all of the Golden Rose first acceptors to turn three when the horses’ birthdays are officially celebrated on the first of August in Australia.

Among Pierro’s stablemates that could clash with the $2.95 million earner in the feature include Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Driefontein, Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up No Looking Back and Champagne Stakes failure Raceway.

Also on the path for a rematch with Pierro in the Golden Rose this spring are the likes of Golden Slipper second placegetter Snitzerland and third placed Samaready who earlier won the Blue Diamond Stakes, Black Caviar’s half-brother All Too Hard who ran second in the Sires Produce, and Champagne Stakes runner-up Dear Demi.

Matt Rudolph from the ATC was over the moon with the depth of first acceptances for the club’s chief spring feature, especially the inclusion of so many classy fillies ready to take on the boys.

“We’re very happy with the nominations and we would hope to see more fillies set for the race this year,” he said.

“Last year was a high-quality race but purely colts and geldings.

“We’ve got some high-class fillies this year including Samaready and Snitzerland who both placed in the Slipper.”
