Rosehill Gardens Track Report

  • Rail Position: +3m Entire Circuit
  • Track Condition: Good (3)
  • Weather: Fine
  • Penetrometer: 4.65

In a different schedule to usual the black type action kicks things off at Rosehill today with Race 1 at 12:40pm being the $200,000 Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) featuring 2014 Victoria Derby favourite Sweynesse ($2.30 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

A handicap clash featuring Chris Waller’s Wyong Cup winner Multilateral ($4.40) follows with Race 2 at 1:15pm being the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m), a nice lead-up for stayers looking to back-up Saturday week in Randwick’s $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan over the same distance.

The next Group race is then Race 5 at 3:05pm with top three-year-olds including luckless Golden Rose runner-up Scissor Kick ($1.90) and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Valentia ($4.80), scratched from the day’s opening event, facing off in the $200,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m).

The $175,000 Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) follows at 3:45pm where four-year-old Rock Sturdy ($3.20), runner-up to Manawanui in the Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) last Saturday, on the rails looks the one to beat.

While only holding Group 3 status, the day’s marquee race in Sydney today is then Race 7 at 4:25pm with the fillies and mares running in the lucrative $300,000 Golden Pendant (1400m).

Waller’s smart mare Catkins ($1.55) is the deserving odds-on favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au and the best performers in the Golden Pendant will be setting sights on a trip to Victoria during the Melbourne Cup Carnival for the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington.
