Eurozone Nips Rivals in the Bud – The Rosebud 2013 Results

The James & Bart Cummings co-trained colt Eurozone retained their flawless career record over the weekend in Sydney winning their maiden black type in the 2013 The Rosebud.

A son of the ill-fated Northern Meteor, Eurozone made their three-year-old debut at Royal Randwick on Saturday in the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m).

It was another top run from the Golden Rose and Caulfield Guineas bound youngster following two winter wins at Canterbury and Rosehill respectively.

They got conditions to suit again too with the meeting run on a Slow (7) track – the same rating Eurozone’s two other wins were also recorded on.

Ridden by Hugh Bowman Eurozone went out as the $3.10 favourite and was able to beat home Peter Moody’s Sebring colt Dissident ($9) by one and a quarter lengths.

Finishing off the winning The Rosebud trifecta just half a length further back was then surprise place-getter Dowdstown Charlie ($41) from the stables of David Payne, the galloper showing nice improvement after their dead last finish in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm back in June.

Despite the impressive lead-all-the-way performance, Bowman said post-race that it wasn’t the best run the horse could have had and there was plenty of improvement left in them according to the Herald Sun.

“He jumped in front, I didn’t push to be there,” Bowman said of the Dato Tan Chin Nam-owned youngster on Saturday.

“I was just there, although he travelled comfortably.

“But I’m certain this horse will be a better chaser.

“He has taken a pretty decent step today and I don’t see any reason why he can’t do it again.

“You’ve only got to look at him, he is a more furnished horse in the yard, he has developed a lot in a short time. If he can continue to do that he could be a serious spring contender.”

Bart Cummings’ grandson James confirmed Eurozone would vie for their maiden elite level trophy during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 14 after contesting the traditional lead-up in the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Roses (1200m) on August 31.

“He will go to The Run To The Rose in three weeks and then into the Golden Rose,” he said.

“He’s a very classy horse and he is entirely deserving of what we are planning to run him in. We keep raising the bar and he jumps it.”

From there they are Melbourne-bound having been nominated for a shot at the big time in the $1 million Group 1 The BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 12.

After Saturday’s win Eurozone has burst up the Golden Rose odds, led by Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winner Overreach, and pays around $9.

In the Caulfield Guineas betting they are still at a generous quote of about $15 to win.
