17 Starter 2013 Golden Rose Field Announced

Despite controversial talks of a capacity 18 starter Golden Rose 2013 field for this Saturday, the official final acceptances taken this morning by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) have revealed 17 hopefuls that will face off in the big one at Rosehill Gardens on the weekend.

The premier race for three-year-olds held during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose (1400m) will be run as Race 7 at 4:30pm (AEST) and has drawn a crack field of up-and-comers.

The early favourite for the classic is Tony Vasil’s Prince Harada.

A late entry at a cost of $50,000 to connections, the Darwin-owned Haradasun colt has had two wins and a second from their three career starts to date, their most recent effort being runner-up to Fast ‘N’ Rocking in the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 31.

The David Hayes-trained McNeil Stakes winner is also set to back up for a rematch in the Golden Rose, the son of Fastnet Rock occupying the second line of betting.

Well tried with nine runs to their name, including a Golden Slipper and Champagne Stakes fifth as a juvenile in the autumn, Fast ‘N’ Rocking has definite class.

Their McNeil win by two lengths however was generous as Prince Harada was luckless throughout the run suffering severe interference in the closing stages which lost them the race according to many.

McNeil Stakes third placegetter Thermal Current is also among the Golden Rose final field for trainer Peter Moody.

Victoria’s premier trainer saddles up two chances in the race having also accepted for his Sebring colt Dissident who has come via the traditional path.

A first-up second in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) was improved upon by Dissident last start when a narrow second beaten just a long neck in the Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m).

The best represented trainer though is Ms Gai Waterhouse with an incredible five chances.

Her best fancied is Pitcrew, a son of Sebring who won their opening three starts on the trot before a fourth to stablemate War in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m).

Pitcrew will be joined by stablemates Aussies Love Sport, Bull Point, Up & Coming Stakes winner War and Zizou colt Marseille Roulette who comes off a third in the Run To The Rose.

Also with multiple Golden Rose hopes this year is Anthony Cummings who is represented by one of the top fancies in Up & Coming Stakes runner-up Drago and progressive Fastnet Rock colt Cluster.

Other big name hopes then include the Chris Waller-trained Northern Meteor colt Zouster who was second in the Group 1 JJ Atkins in Brisbane during the winter, Peter Snowden’s Golden Slipper runner-up Sidestep out to improve on a shock last place finish in the Run To The Rose, and the James & Bart Cummings-trained The Rosebud winner Eurozone.

See below for the full 2013 Golden Rose final field with jockeys to be confirmed.
