The Rosebud Winner Scissor Kicks Way into Golden Rose 2014

Bookies around the country have slashed the price on the Paul Messara-trained Scissor Kick to win next month’s 2014 Golden Rose after their smart win in Saturday’s The Rosebud at Royal Randwick.

The Redoute’s Choice colt was cut from a juicy $51 right into $11 at Ladbrokes.com.au in their futures markets to win the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 13 after the weekend’s Sydney race results.

Featuring a field of eight Golden Rose hopes this year’s $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) was one of two black-types on the Randwick race card for Missile Stakes Day.

A winning ride on the inside from Tye Angland produced The Rosebud winner with Scissor Kick ($6.50) making it back-to-back wins this time in defeating the highly-spruiked Peter Moody-trained Better Land ($6) by three quarters of a length.

“He’s a beautiful type and knows what he’s doing,” Angland said.

“It’s only his third time out on race day so he’s got a lot of improvement.

“He’s a nice horse and he’s going to go a long way.”

Better Land, who had a luckless run three wide without cover on Saturday, has also stormed up the Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes.com.au also at $11 to win now in markets led by Blue Diamond Stakes winner Earthquake ($7) who is a doubtful final acceptor in the three-year-olds’ classic.

Third in The Rosebud trifecta on Saturday meanwhile only a short head further back was then the consistent Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Inkling ($5.50) who was brave in defeat having carried the 59kg top weight – a full three kilos more than the winner.

Duporth colt Inkling, who has won two of their four starts to date, also managed to beat home the John O’Shea-trained favourite in The Rosebud with Sarajevo ($2.60) losing few admirers running one length and a long neck off the winner in fourth after making up late ground.

“The team’s very happy,” Godolphin‘s head Australian trainer O’Shea said of Sarajevo on Saturday.

“What was most impressive is he was so strong through the line. I’m looking forward to 1400 [metres] because it looks like it will just absolutely suit him.”

While Sarajevo is still on the Golden Rose path, the Lonhro colt at $9 to win, Inkling is likely to have a brief freshen-up now missing the Sydney feature in favour of a later Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival comeback.

Whether Scissor Kick will measure up in the Golden Rose meanwhile is still questionable after they graduated from a three length win first-up at Canterbury in a midweek meet last month to The Rosebud.

Still Messara would like to give it a go, the horseman putting off his retirement from training to move into a full-time stud manager position at his family’s Arrowfield Stud to prepare Scissor Kick and only a handful of other runners at his Scone base.

“In the long term we’ll probably keep two or three or a very small group in work,” Messara told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“There’s still a couple of nice ones coming through and this is obviously one we’ve had a nice opinion of.

“There’s still an itch to scratch and I love training, but the job’s at the farm now.”

In regards to Scissor Kick’s upcoming campaign, the promising stallion prospect could also head to Melbourne after the Rose for a shot at the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11.

“He’s got a stallion’s pedigree and it’s fantastic to see him do that and we’ll go forward from there,” Arrowfield boss John Messara added.
