Payne Draws Bold Circle Around Golden Rose 2014

Sydney horseman David Payne has begun mapping the spring campaigns of his gallopers in earnest naming the 2014 Golden Rose Stakes in September for his promising colt Bold Circle.

Having welcomed back into work a month ago his Cox Plate-bound ATC Derby winner Criterion, Payne is also looking forward to the new season return of his Bernardini two-year-old Bold Circle.

The youngster won back-to-back Rosehill trials last spring before debuting in the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate (1000m) on October 5 at Randwick.

There they were far from disgraced first-up when third behind Law (1st) and Mohave (2nd) in the Black Type sprint.

Their next start came 21 days later at Rosehill where they were dropped back in class but up in distance for the $85,000 Men Of League Plate (1100m) which they enjoyed a long neck win over Sheer Style in.

Also in that race was subsequent $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Unencumbered who ran three quarters of a length away third.

While Unencumbered went on to race eight more times in their juvenile campaign including in the Golden Slipper and ATC Sires Produce Stakes, things went awry for Bold Circle who hasn’t raced this year.

Payne is confident the rising three-year-old can come back and be competitive this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival naming the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 13 as their first major assignment.

They are set to trial in about three weeks’ time and will use the Golden Rose as a stepping stone to the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival’s $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11.

“All going well I’d like to have a crack at the Caulfield Guineas with him because I think he’s up to it,” Payne told Racing Victoria.

Other early Golden Rose hopes heading towards the set weights feature include Darley’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes third placegetter Kumaon, the Saab Hasan-trained Turfane, Gerald Ryan’s Washington Heights and Victorian-trained Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown.

Caulfield Guineas futures markets are already open at and are led by JJ Atkins winner Almalad ($9) for Gai Waterhouse who is in line for a bumper spring.

Bold Circle is yet to be added to the pre-nom markets but if they can come back and run well this prep they’ll soon enter calculations for the mile classic at Caulfield Racecourse.

Other notable 2014 Caulfield Guineas-bound youngsters now back in work include Kiwi raider Cauthen who resumes in the Group 1 Mafki Challenge Stakes (1400m) in New Zealand in August before heading down under, Mick Price’s improving Golden Rose hope Cornrow, their stable mate Jabali who will contest the same Group 1 3YO double and Steve Richards’ Talindert Stakes winner Marcado who will return in August in the early spring sprints.
