Nechita Confirmed for 2012 Golden Rose

Patinack Farm head trainer John Thompson announced over the weekend that the stable’s promising young filly Nechita will be a definite Golden Rose 2012 acceptor.


Nechita has been confirmed for the 2012 Golden Rose on September 15

The undefeated daughter of Fastnet Rock won her race debut at Warwick Farm back in June over Diamond Earth before coming back on August 25 to break her black type maiden status.

First-up at Warwick Farm she easily got the better of a smart field of fellow three-year-old fillies when beating home the Peter Snowden-trained Meidung by one and three quarter lengths in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m).

Ridden by Christian Reith, who copped a careless riding suspension at Rosehill on Saturday, for both victories Nechita has since been confirmed as heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 15.

“She’s great and runs two weeks from today (in the Golden Rose),” Thompson said on Saturday.

“I’m happy with that. She’s shown enough promise to have a go at that and I’m looking forward to it.”

Reith’s original seven-meeting ban on the weekend was reduced to six allowing him to return just in time for the Golden Rose.

Up-and-coming spring star Nechita is also nominated for two of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival’s biggest features.

Firstly she could tackle the females in the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600im) at Caulfield Racecourse on Wednesday October 17 before a possible shot at Australasia’s weight-for-age championship – the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Saturday October 27.

In the latest Golden Rose odds at bookmakers around the country Nechita is now topping the markets at around $2.75 knocking former favourite All Too Hard off top spot, the fellow Nathan Tinkler-owned youngster failing to feature when a disappointing fifth to Pierro in the Group 3 The Run To The Rose on the weekend at Rosehill.

For the Thousand Guineas 2012 meanwhile Nechita is also now the firm favourite at a price of around $3.70 ahead of Atlantic Jewel’s three-quarter sister Commanding Jewel ($5.50).

She obviously does not top the 2012 Cox Plate odds however, Nechita paying a juicy $41 in markets led by Gai Waterhouse’s unbeaten colt Pierro.
