2013 Golden Rose Dream for Ike’s Legacy

Punters could be watching the debut of this year’s Golden Rose 2013 winner when David Vandyke saddles up the promising Ike’s Legacy at Warwick Farm this week.

The nicely-bred Redoute’s Choice colt out of King Of Kings Group 1 winning mare Ike’s Dream (2005 Queen Of The Turf Stakes) has had two trials to date.

Their most recent was a winning effort over the 1050m at Randwick on June 7 and they now run under race conditions for the first time in the $35,000 TAB Ipad App Handicap (1300m) on Wednesday.

Vandyke, who has been back in training since 2010 after spending two decades away from racing having previously trained under the name David Hayes, has slowly been building up his contingent and now fills 32 boxes in his Sydney stable.

Not to be mistaken with Hall of Fame trainer David Hayes, Vandkye adopted his mother’s maiden name  when reapplying for his training license three years ago and is eager to see exactly how far he can take one of his most exciting juvenile’s Ike’s Legacy.

“We are all very excited about his debut,” Vandyke said.

“He has to be close to being the best bred horse in the stable and has the perfect credentials to become a stallion.

“He has the perfect nature.

“He is relaxes, he is confident and the complete package.

“His breeder Noel Carroll races him and he is out of a wonderful race mare who sadly is no longer with us, hence his name.”

For his much awaited debut Ike’s Legacy will be ridden by Peter Robl who was aboard for his winning trial last Friday the pair to jump from barrier four in the small nine-horse field.

Following Wednesday’s maiden run Vandkye is hoping Ike’s Dream can enjoy a short break before coming back into work ahead of a Sydney Spring Racing Carnival campaign targeting the $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 14 which kicks off the season’s elite levels.

“If he does what we expect he will have a couple of weeks off and be aimed at the Golden Rose,” he said.

Early 2013 Golden Rose nominations closed on June 4 with first acceptances to be taken on Tuesday July 9.

Futures Golden Rose betting is sure to begin shortly after and should Ike’s Legacy win their Wednesday debut then they are likely to open as a decent chance in the ante-post odds.
