Golden Rose 2012 Qualifiers This Saturday

This Saturday the first step for juveniles heading towards the opening Group 1 race of the season, the 2012 Golden Rose, will be the Rosebud Qualifiers at Sydney’s Warwick Farm Racecourse.

Anthony Cummings has a strong contingent of youngsters heading into the 2012 Golden Rose in September

The $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) is one of the headline events of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and is due to light up Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 15, 2012.

While there are many paths youngsters can go via to get into the Golden Rose field, a popular option is the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Warwick Farm on August 11.

Leading into the 2012 The Rosebud is first two qualifying events at the track this weekend with the $85,000 Fillies and Colts & Geldings Rosebud Qualifiers over 1100m.

The Fillies Rosebud Qualifier has attracted 18 nominations including a trio from the Anthony Cummings’ stables with the unraced Return Ticket, Fastnet Rock filly She’s A Fox and a daughter of Exceed And Excel in Soapbox who comes off a last start victory over the Peter Snowden-trained Agulhas over 1000m at Gosford.

It is unlikely that all three will line-up in the Fillies Rosebud Qualifier field with Cummings to make the final cut later in the week, the promising Soapbox the most likely to run on Saturday.

“I’ll decide after trackwork on Tuesday which ones run on Saturday,” Cummings, who won the 2008 Golden Rose with Duporth one year before it was elevated to a Group 1 event, said.

“There are plenty of races leading up to the Golden Rose.

“I think Saturday’s race is the right race for Soapbox.

“I’ll try to get as many as I can to the Golden Rose.”

Other notable fillies entered for Saturday’s event include John O’Shea’s Redoute’s Choice two-year-old Don’t Blink who won on debut at Canterbury last November, Peter Moody’s unbeaten Freeze filly Mareeza last seen putting three lengths on her rivals over 1200m at Sandown in March, and the smart Gai Waterhouse-trained duo of Rex Is A Star and Sherocksmyworld.

Encosta De Lago filly Rex Is A Star and Sherocksmyworld both also come off last start victories.

The Colts & Geldings Rosebud Qualifier meanwhile has had its nominations extended until Tuesday morning at 11:00am (AEST) with 14 current entries.

Among the topliners are Muswellbrook galloper Crown Of Dreams and the Chris Waller-trained last-start Newcastle winner Relaxed And Happy.

For Cummings his Golden Rose bound boys in the Rosebud Qualifier are then Hard Marker who ran a good fourth to All Too Hard in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes back in March, and Call Me Ishmael who would be making their debut.

Cummings’ most notable Golden Rose 2012 hopeful meanwhile is Your Song who won’t go to the Rosebud, the Fastnet Rock colt having won their two most recent runs at Warwick Farm and Rosehill respectively over 1300m and 1400m in the wet.

“Your Song will be back on Monday or Tuesday and we will look at where to place him,” Cummings said.

“He could run in the San Domenico or the Up And Coming.

“There are any number of options coming up for the three-year-olds.”

The $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) runs at Rosehill on August 18 followed by the $125,000 Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm on the 25th.

The above two races will also be considered for another of Cummings’ 2012 Golden Rose aspirants with Fastnet Rock colt Ninth Legion who won their opening two races this winter before finishing a brave fifth, beaten only two and a half lengths, to Sizzling in the Group 1 TJ Smith (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 9.
