2014 Australian Oaks Results: Rising Romance Holds On To Win

Rising Romance received a stellar ride from James McDonald to record a tough win in the 2014 Australian Oaks at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Rising Romance was positioned just off the speed by McDonald, while odds-on favourite Lucia Valentina settled at the tail of the field, and she kicked well clear from the rest of the Australian Oaks field when she was asked for an extra effort.

Zanbagh and Lucia Valentina both stormed home late, but Rising Romance was able to hold on and record her maiden win at Group 1 level after finishing second behind Puccini in the New Zealand Derby (2400m).

McDonald was critical of his own ride on Rising Romance in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m), but trainer Donna Logan said that he more than made up for it with his stellar ride in the 2014 Australian Oaks this afternoon.

“To be here in Sydney at Championships time is just the ultimate,” Logan said.

“He did tell me that he made a mistake and he promised that he would make it up to me in the Oaks.

“She has loved it here, as I do, and us girls don’t mind going on a trip.

“We are very elated and very proud to have a filly this good.”

McDonald was delighted to repay the faith that Logan had shown to him after his poor ride in the Vinery Stud Stakes and paid credit to the form that New Zealand-trained and bred horses have shown during the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

“I told everybody that I rode her pretty bad and I knew that the filly was exceptional.

“Geez the Kiwis are flying this Carnival.

“We wanted to be more positive than last time and as the tempo quickened up it really opened up a bit and my filly stays all day.

“It was a great effort.”
