2013 Rosehill Guineas Day Scratchings – Fiveandahalfstar Withdrawn

Today’s racing is set to begin at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse shortly, with the first race of 2013 Rosehill Guineas Day due to jump at 12.10pm (AEDT).

A number of high profile horses have been scratched from the meeting, with the latest being Fiveandahalfstar‘s shock withdrawal from the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas.

Fiveandahalfstar has finished second in all four of his race starts this autumn carnival, and was looking to finally claim a well deserved victory in today’s race.

However, trainer Anthony Cummings made the tough call to scratch Fiveandahalfstar from the 2013 Rosehill Guineas due to his failure to bounce back after last start’s grinding finish in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes.

“Once I decided to gallop him today it put tomorrow out of the question,” Cummings said.

“I am thinking his gallop this morning and another one on Sunday will probably get him to where he needs to be without having to worry about running on Saturday.”

Fiveandahalfstar has won three of his 19 race starts and has earned more than $1.3 millon in prize money during his horse racing career.

He was second favourite behind It’s A Dundeel to win the 2013 Rosehill Guineas at bookmaker.com.au.

Other scratchings at Rosehill Racecourse today include Hay List and Adebisi in the 2013 The Galaxy, as well as Ladys Angel and Gybe in the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes.
