2014 The Roses Results – Arabian Gold Far Too Good

Arabian Gold stamped herself as the leading contender for the 2014 Queensland Oaks with a comfortable victory in the 2014 The Roses at Doomben this afternoon.

Jockey Blake Shinn settled Arabian Gold in the middle of the field and the race was set up for her when Ric McMahon pushed forward on Kiwi filly Chop Chop and made sure that the race was run at a good pace.

Tornado Miss kicked clear coming around the turn and Hera looked a winning chance after receiving a lovely run into the race, but Arabian Gold was far too strong in the final stages of the race and she cruised to her straight victory.

“It is fantastic to come up to Brisbane and ride winners on a feature day, that is what it is all about,” Shinn said.

“We have come up here today with a Sydney horse and I was pretty confident that she would do the job.

“She did it in flying colours and it was a great victory.

“There is a little bit of give in the ground, but it is riding like a good track and I think that she showed her class and it is very special to win in these colours.”

Trainer David Vandyke opted not to run Arabian Gold in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) during the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and elected to contest the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) and Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m); with the talented filly producing two strong victories.

Arabian Gold has been included in the nominations for both the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) and Queensland Derby (2400m), but Vandyke refused to confirm that the daughter of Dubawi would contest either Group 1 event and will wait until he sees how the filly pulls up from the impressive victory.

Owner Nick Moraitis was at Doomben to witness his star filly in the flesh and revealed after the race that it was the first time that he had been at Doomben since his greatest horse Might And Power recorded a popular victory in front of a capacity crowd in the 1998 edition of the Doomben Cup.
