Aussies Love Sport Scratched From 2013 Golden Rose

Aussies Love Sport was provisionally passed fit to run by Racing NSW Senior Official veterinarian Dr C Suann yesterday but another exam found that an old healing wound to the inside of the off side gaskin was still causing the Redoute’s Choice colt discomfort.

The three-year-old stamped himself as a 2013 Golden Rose contender with back-to-back victories in the Dooleys Handicap (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens and the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) and he had been fairly well backed in the lead-up to the race.

The withdrawal of Aussies Love Sport leaves leading trainer Gai Waterhouse with four runners in the Golden Rose and she remains confident that one of them will be her first ever winner in the $1 million race.

“I have five really good chances – I can’t split them because they are all going well,” Waterhouse told News Limited yesterday.

War has gone ahead in leaps and bounds since he won at Warwick Farm, Pitcrew and Marseille Roulette are the forgotten horses in the field and Bull Point has just exploded since his last run.”

Melbourne-based colts Prince Harada ($5) and Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($5) are currently on top of the 2013 Golden Rose betting market but Waterhouse believes that the Sydney three-year-old form is superior to that which has come through Melbourne.

“I feel the Sydney three-year-olds have the edge,” Waterhouse said.

“The home-ground advantage, so to speak, is in their favour.”

Waterhouse has major chances in both states this weekend with Cox Plate contender Fiorente one of the favourites for the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m).
