It’s A Dundeel dominates Rosehill Guineas 2013 Results

New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel dominated the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas today, winning by an impressive 6 3/4 lengths over Sacred Falls and Tatra.

It was a masterful performance by jockey James McDonald who early on in the race manoeuvred It’s A Dundeel off the fence after being pushed in by Hvasstan. While it meant It’s A Dundeel fell back to second last for most of the race it meant that coming into the straight McDonald was able to get the three-year-old colt out and produce an impressive turn of foot to surge away from the field for a dominante win.

Sacred Falls and Tatra had a close battle for the minor placings, with Kingdoms finished fourth.

“It was a brilliant win. You know when he was back second last I thought gee, but we know he’s got that big sprint and he can sustain it,” trainer Murray Baker said of the race.

“I think he was relaxed, and it was probably off the fence, that’s a big thing, we didn’t want him to get trapped on the fence where he had to stop start

On It’s A Dundeel’s next race, Baker said.

“The Derby’s been the mission right through… we wanted to keep him to his own age group.”

Jockey James McDonald was clearly happy with the result,

“He’s definitely the best horse I’ve ever sat on, and his evenness was breathtaking. I was in a bit of an awkward spot, especially approaching the home corner and a few of the guys were riding probably to beat me and they weren’t going so soon or even if their horses needed to go a little bit earlier . But My horse was clearly the best horse and it would have been good if Fiveandahalfstar was in there.”

“He found the line stroing, real strong.”

It’s A Dundeel will now head to the Group 1 ATC Australian Derby in 2 weeks time at Royal Randwick, where he might run into recent rival Fiveandahalfstar. Scratched yesterday from the Rosehill Guineas, Fiveandahalfstar will target The BMW next weekend instead instead and then maybe go to the ATC Derby.
