Red Dynamite to Fire off 2012 Golden Rose Claims

Tim Martin’s lightly-raced colt Red Dynamite will put their Golden Rose 2012 aspirations on the line this Saturday when they face their acid test in the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Warwick Farm Racecourse.


Urquidez is one of the top fancies for the 2012 The Rosebud this weekend

One of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival’s first black-type features, the 2012 The Rosebud is a traditional lead-up for three-year-olds heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 15.

Among the diminutive five-horse The Rosebud field this year is Red Ransom colt Red Dynamite who has drawn barrier two with Corey Brown to ride.

Red Dynamite pays $6.50 in The Rosebud odds at trailing the short-priced favourite She’s A Fox ($1.75), local up-and-comer Urquidez ($3.80) and VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes runner-up Pronto Pronto ($5.50).

Purchased for $100,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales, Red Dynamite debuted on the back of two successful Rosehill trials when putting an easy four lengths on their rivals at Goulburn on July 27.

“I wanted to give him a soft win,” Martin said, explaining why he chose Goulburn for the horse’s first-up run.

“Apart from Randwick and Rosehill it’s the best track.

“He’s the first good one I’ve taken down there but I will be taking more in the future.”

While the class of that field wasn’t in the same league as the Anthony Cummings-trained She’s A Fox, Red Dynamite still caught the eye having carried 58kg to victory from the extreme outside barrier 12 (of 12).

“It was what we expected but they’ve still got to do it and a lot of them don’t,” Martin said of Red Dynamite’s win on debut.

Against a smaller field with just 55kg on their back this weekend, punters must surely consider Red Dynamite a chance in The Rosebud.

“The whole reason he is running on Saturday is to see if he’s worthy of running in that (Golden Rose),” Martin said.

“It’s a big test for him and Saturday will answer a few questions.”

When asked about the main dangers in The Rosebud field there were no surprises in Martin’s answer as the Rosehill-based horseman pointed to the smart last-start win at the track by Uquidez as well as She’s A Fox who also won first-up at Warwick Farm last time out.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for Urquidez, he was very impressive last time, as well as She’s A Fox,” he said.

In the futures Golden Rose odds at Red Dynamite pays a very juicy $41, a price that is sure to come in should they score an upset on Saturday.
