Rosehill Run for Soon-To-Return Rubick

Local horseman Gerald Ryan has confirmed his promising young colt Rubick will have an exhibition gallop between races at Rosehill this weekend ahead of their highly anticipated spring return.

A winner of two of their three career starts to date the Encosta De Lago colt was last seen running fourth to star Darley-owned filly Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 22.

Before that they won their opening two starts with a three length win on debut at Randwick in January followed by their brave Group 3 Blue Diamond (Colts & Geldings) Prelude (1100m) victory a fortnight before the main event.

Rubick got away well from a wide barrier in the Blue Diamond and was heading the 16-horse field at the turn but was run down over the final 200m and was somewhat disappointing without a powerful finish.

Ryan is hoping they have matured and can improve this coming spring with their campaign possibly kicking off on August 16 at Rosehill in the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

Their trainer will return from a yearling sales’ trip in Japan on Friday to watch Rubick’s weekend gallop and confirm or reassess their first-up option.

The rising three-year-old will be ridden by their regular race jockey Brenton Avdulla on Saturday who makes the trip despite currently serving a suspension.

“Gerald asked me whether he should just get another jockey for the gallop because I didn’t need to be there but I told him no chance anyone else is getting on,” Avdulla told TVN.

“I’ll just cruise out and do the gallop and then head back home.”

Avdulla is excited about reuniting with the juvenile too who remains quite small despite their winter spell.

“I’m really looking forward to the gallop, he has been in for a while now and is going super,” he said.

“He hasn’t grown a hell of a lot but he is still well put together, he still feels powerful underneath me.

“He is a gentleman to do anything with, pretty laid back – he has a good horses attitude, when he gallops he can fire up a bit but that is just him, he loves to run.”

Earlier this winter Ryan told AAP that Rubick’s major assignment this spring would be in Melbourne’s Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington in November during the Cup Carnival.

How they handle the straight course however prior to then will be key to whether they definitely run in the Victoria Derby Day classic.

The San Domenico Stakes is likely to be their sole Sydney run before heading to Melbourne for the remainder of their campaign.
