Bowman Booked for Rose Ride on Prince Harada

Victorian horseman Tony Vasil has confirmed Hugh Bowman will replace Steve Arnold aboard his smart col Prince Harada when they jump favourite in this Saturday’s $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney.

Haradasun three-year-old Prince Harada is the current $3.30 favourite for Rosehill’s 2013 Golden Rose on the weekend after their Darwin-based connections paid Sunday’s $50,000 late entry fee.

In the latest Golden Rose odds Prince Harada is at the top of the markets paying $3.30 ahead of their last-start conqueror in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m), the David Hayes-trained Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($5).

A winner of their opening two starts during the winter, Prince Harada was luckless in their first-up run at Caulfield on August 31.

While they did well to recover and snare second, the horse suffered nasty interference during the McNeil Stakes run when rival jockey Lauren Stojakovic shifted out on her mount Miracles Of Life.

They were also badly checked in the closing stages due to the ride of Melbourne Cup winning jockey Brett Prebble on the eventual winner.

For all three of their starts so far Prince Harada has been ridden by Steve Arnold.

However for their step up to elite level in the Golden Rose, Sydney big race specialist Bowman will take over as connections still harbor disappointment that Arnold didn’t take Prince Harada to the inside in the McNeil.

Bowman, second only to Nash Rawiller in last season’s Sydney jockey premiership, is also expected to stay on for the colt’s shot at the $1 million Group 1 The BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne on October 12.

They will be on a float to Sydney on Thursday for the Golden Rose, Vasil having worked them the Sydney way of going on Saturday morning.

“He’s in great order and now we have the chance to win two stallion-making races at the highest level in two states,” Vasil said.

The Golden Rose field, likely to reach its 18 starter capacity for the first time in history, is shaping up as a cracker too.

Other key contenders include the Chris Waller-trained JJ Atkins runner-up Zoustar, Peter Moody’s Run To The Rose runner-up Dissident, and the Anthony Cummings-trained duo of Cluster and Drago.

The majority of the other major Golden Rose jockey announcements have also been made including Jim Cassidy to stay on Zouster, Cluster (James McDonald), Drago (Peter Robl), Dissident (Tim Clark) and Moody’s other hope Thermal Current (Brad Rawiller).
