Up & Coming Stakes Winner Albrecht a Golden Rose 2012 Chance

Peter Snowden and connections at Darley Australia will consider a Golden Rose bid with improving Redoute’s Choice colt Albrecht after their smashing win in the 2012 Up & Coming Stakes at Warwick Farm over the weekend.


Up & Coming Stakes winner Albrecht is now a 2012 Golden Rose chance

The three-year-old saluted in their second race success from three starts when overcoming the extreme outside barrier 10 to take out the $125,000 Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) on Saturday, proving themselves as one to watch this spring.

“I knew there was some improvement there but I was surprised just how much he came on from that run,” Snowden said speaking of Albrecht’s last-start third at Canterbury on August 4.

“I worked him in winkers for the future.

“He worked so well in them on Tuesday, I decided he could have them for the entire way.

“It made a difference to him but I believe he is a talented horse.”

There is now a strong chance the untapped youngster will back up in the $1 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 15, Albrecht rated as a $15 chance in the latest Golden Rose odds which are led by All Too Hard.

If Snowden decides the horse isn’t ready for a big Group 1 assignment just yet, then they will instead be given the easier next-up task of running in the $100,000 Listed Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) back at Warwick Farm on September 8.

“There’s two options,” Snowden, who was keeping his cards close to his chest on Saturday, said.

“He could go to the Ming Dynasty in two weeks or go to the Golden Rose in three weeks.

“I’ve got an opinion of where we should go but I’ll talk to the team and then make a decision.

“He’s still got a bit to learn but he’s definitely a raw talent.”

In the Up & Coming Stakes on Saturday Albrecht ($4.40) was ridden expertly by Kerrin McEvoy who guided them to a half length victory over the Guy Walter-trained Toydini ($14) who is set to back up in the Ming Dynasty.

Albrecht’s stablemate Tatra ($11) then finished off the winning trifecta just a quarter length further away in third, a fine return from the Champagne Stakes minor placegetter who carried the 58kg topweight.

The short-priced favourite Sumarand ($2) from the Gai Waterhouse stables was disappointing on the day and could only manage to finish just over two lengths away from the winner in fourth, causing chief steward Ray Murrihy to question jockey Glyn Schofield.

Waterhouse opted not to race Sumarand in blinkers for the Up & Coming, despite the last-start Hawkesbury winner having done all their best racing during previous barrier trials with the blinkers on.

“He raced, to me, like he would need a bit of ground,” Schofield said to stewards.

“That was the first time I have ridden him with, or without, blinkers so I can’t comment on that.”
