Pronto Pronto to Start in 2012 Danehill Stakes Not Golden Rose

Jason Warren-trained colt Pronto Pronto will not contest Saturday week’s 2012 Golden Rose and will instead turn out this weekend in the Group 2 2012 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington.

The promising three-year-old was unable to make an impact earlier this month in the Listed Rosebud at Warwick Farm and Warren has elected not to burden him with another Sydney trip.

The Mornington trainer said he didn’t cope well with the traveland highlighted that, rather than the quality of opposition, as the reason for bypassing the $1 million three-year-old feature.

“He didn’t travel that well up to Sydney the last time,” Warren said.

“All round, I think we’re better off staying home.”

The Rosebud was the son of Snitzel’s first test as a three-year-old and he failed to adapt to the Sydney way of going as he finished six lengths behind winner She’s A Fox.

But Pronto Pronto should be far more comfortable at Flemington this weekend after showing a liking for the track earlier this year.

The Caulfield Guineas hope finished second to All Too Hard in the Henry Bucks Sires’ Produce Stakes in what was the final start of his juvenile career.

A winner of one of four starts, it will be no easy task to add to that resume on Saturday with a quality field of three-year-olds nominated for the Group 2 sprint.

The top nomination is Golden Slipper runner-up Snitzerland who will be having the second start of her spring campaign after beating Driefontein and All Too Hard to win the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes last month.

Also nominated are unbeaten youngsters Psychic Mick, Molto Bene and Stralia.
