Bold Circle May Bypass The Rosebud 2014

Despite featuring as one of the topline nominees for Saturday’s 2014 The Rosebud at Randwick, trainer David Payne may save his top colt Bold Circle for a San Domencio Stakes return.

Local Rosehill-based Payne named the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at his home track on September 13 earlier this year as the primary Sydney Spring Racing Carnival goal for his son of Bernardini Bold Circle.

That 2014 Golden Rose campaign kicks off this month, possibly as soon as this weekend.

Bold Circle is one of 11 early entries for the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) on Saturday, the $26 Golden Rose chance at to race for the first time since October if accepted.

They galloped well up against their Group 1 winning stablemate Criterion when ridden by Jeff Lloyd in a public workout at Rosehill last Saturday impressing their trainer.

Payne however won’t make the final call until today, Bold Circle scheduled to have had a gallop on Tuesday morning.

“We’ll just wait and see how he works in the morning,” Payne told AAP on Monday.

On the back of two trial wins at Rosehill Bold Circle debuted as a 30-1 outsider in the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate (100m) on October 5 last spring running a game third behind Law who has been transferred from Gai Waterhouse to Chris Waller and who is also nominated for The Rosebud.

They backed up at the end of the month to win the Men Of League Plate (1100m) at Rosehill but haven’t raced since after suffering some problems with their knee.

Payne is now weighing up then whether to bring them back on Saturday in The Rosebud where they could face the likes of the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Inkling and John O’Shea’s $9 Golden Rose fancy Sarajevo or save them for Saturday week.

If they miss The Rosebud then Bold Circle would run first-up on August 16 at Rosehill Gardens in the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) won last year by Va Pensiero.

“We might wait another week for the San Domenico,” Payne said. “There is no rush to decide.”

Following the Golden Rose Payne hopes to get Bold Circle out to a mile and so will also be nominating them today for Melbourne’s $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11 with entries closing at midday.

“I believe he is a horse who can get a mile,” he said.

“The Golden Rose is his aim in Sydney and then we will see after that.”

Stay tuned to to view the official The Rosebud field on Wednesday and whether Bold Circle is accepted or not.
