Almalad Leads 2014 The Run To The Rose Nominations

Gai Waterhouse’s equal Golden Rose favourite Almalad leads the early nominations taken for Saturday’s The Run To The Rose 2014 at Rosehill Gardens.

Al Maher gelding Almalad is one of 14 three-year-olds entered for the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) on the weekend, nominations for which have been extended until 11am on Tuesday.

Winner of the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane back in early June, the undefeated Almalad is currently heading futures Golden Rose odds at $7 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

That is now an equal price for the $1 million Group 1 showdown, run over 1400m back at Rosehill on September 13, with Peter Moody’s Golden Slipper placegetter Bring Me The Maid.

She returned last Saturday racing for the first time since her third to Mossfun in the world’s richest race for juveniles in April, the Sebring filly easily winning the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) in the wet at Randwick.

Third fancies in Golden Rose betting paying $8 are then the Chris Waller-trained Brazen Beau and the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Nostradamus – both also in the mix for the traditional lead-up this Saturday.

I Am Invincible colt Brazen Beau has won two of his five starts to date, including the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) in Doomben.

He is also Group 1 placed having crossed just a long neck off Almalad in the JJ Atkins last time out during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Waller has a total of three Run To The Rose hopefuls having nominated for High Chaparral colt Sniper Fire yet to be tested in black-type company and Law as well as the Group 1 winning stablemate.

A Slipper failure in the mud last season, Denman colt Law returned on August 16 at Rosehill and ran an eye-catching third in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

As mentioned, San Domenico Stakes winner Nostradamus is also in the mix for The Run To The Rose for Team Hawkes.

The son of Medaglia D’Oro was seventh to Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne back in February before his successful return in Sydney two weeks back this Saturday.

The other shortest priced Golden Rose hope in The Run To The Rose nominations is then the John O’Shea-trained Sarajevo ($11).

Lightly raced with just two starts behind him the Lonhro colt stepped up to stakes company on August 9 at Randwick in the Listed The Rosebud (120m) running just over a length away fourth to Scissor Kick.

O’Shea has also nominated for $41 Golden Rose roughie Kumaon and the much better fancied Ghibellines.

At $15 to win the Golden Rose next month, Shamardal colt Ghibellines won the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill in March but hasn’t raced since an eighth in the Golden Slipper.

Also with dual entries is Gerald Ryan who has nominated San Domenico Stakes runner-up Washington Heights and Snitzel filly Ygritte, sixth in the same race, which pay $11 and $34 respectively in the Golden Rose markets.

See below for the current The Run To The Rose 2014 nominations, the final field set for release on Wednesday.
