Six Horse The Run To The Rose 2012 Field Released

Just six three-year-olds have been accepted to run in this Saturday’s The Run To The Rose 2012 at Rosehill Gardens, the Golden Rose lead-up to be dominated by dynamic colts Pierro and All Too Hard.


Pierro will carry the 60kg topweight in the 2012 The Run To The Rose this weekend

Set to run as Rosehill Race 5 at 3:10pm, the sure to be favourite for the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Pierro.

The classy Lonhro colt has won all six of their career starts to date including the Golden Slipper, Sires Produce Stakes, Champagne Stakes treble as a juvenile back in April.

Preparing for a major Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival assault with the Caulfield Guineas and Cox Plate firmly in their sights, Pierro is first-up on Saturday and will dominate The Run To The Rose odds at bookies around the country.

Drawn in barrier four with Nash Rawiller engaged the only real test for Pierro is their 60kg topweight, the horse having only carried up to 56.5kg previously, but his jockey isn’t worried.

“It won’t be a problem for him,” Rawiller said with confidence.

“I can’t wait for Saturday to get on him in a race again. The improvement in him in the past couple of weeks has been so great and he is ready to go.”

Their main danger lies in barrier two with the Nathan Tinkler-owned All Too Hard looking to turn the tables on Pierro after running second to them in the Inglis Sires Produce last time out.

A half-brother to the mighty Black Caviar expensive yearling purchase All Too Hard resumed on August 18 and ran third to Golden Slipper runner-up Snitzerland in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill.

Winner of the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes over the track and distance back in March All Too Hard is expected to improve second-up on Saturday with Dwayne Dunn retaining the ride, but Pierro will still take some beating.

All Too Hard uses the race as a preparatory run leading into the season’s opening Group 1 with the $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 15.

They are the dominant $2.50 favourite in the futures Golden Rose odds at too with Pierro all but ruled out of the race.

Along with Pierro two other gallopers make their three-year-old debuts in The Run To The Rose on Saturday with the John O’Shea-trained Ashokan (barrier three) who won the Skyline Stakes before failing in both the Slipper and Sires Produce, and Peter Snowden’s Commands colt Epaulette (barrier five).

Black Opal Stakes winner Epaulette is currently a $12 Golden Rose chance despite not having run since their dead last finish in the Golden Slipper.

The other major player in the Golden Rose betting markets that features in The Run To The Rose field for 2012 is then the Anthony Cummings-trained Your Song who also pays $12 to win the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival’s only million dollar race.

The son of Fastnet Rock has won two of their three career starts to date most recently over 1400m on a Heavy (9) track at Rosehill in July and would prefer a bit of give out of the ground here.

Cummings also made the late decision to accept for fellow Fastnet Rock colt Ninth Legion in Saturday’s clash, the last-start San Domenico Stakes fourth place-getter to jump from barrier six with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.
