Rubick Could Resume in 2014 Schillaci Stakes

After a pleasing trial win at Rosehill on Tuesday morning, connections of progressive colt Rubick have named Saturday week’s Schillaci Stakes 2014 at Caulfield Racecourse as his likely first-up run of the new season.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Encosta De Lago colt hasn’t raced since a fourth, beaten three lengths by the Godolphin-owned filly Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) back in February.

That was a disappointing finish from Rubick, who held the Blue Diamond lead coming round the turn for home, and one he was sent out to freshen-up after immediately after.

Now Ryan is looking at bringing him back on Caulfield Guineas Day, October 11, with a first-up run in the $200,000 Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) under weight-for-age conditions.

Showing he was fit enough to return to race conditions on Tuesday, Rubick raced in the eighth Rosehill trial of the morning to beat home stable mate Time For War by a length over 900m in easily the fastest time of the heats over that distance – 53.05 seconds.

Rubick was slow away from the gates but quickened in no time and put in a pleasing effort with his new jockey for this campaign, Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

McEvoy takes over from Brenton Avdulla and was quick to sing the horse praise post-trial win today.

“I rode him last week but it was good to get another feel under trial conditions and he did everything we could have hoped,” McEvoy said on TVN.

“He come out a little slow but then quickened nicely and settled just behind Time For War, who is a speedy customer.

“He railed around the bend nicely and then went to the line with plenty left in the tank.”

Ryan has a number of Group 1 options for Rubick this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival including the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on November 1.

The Victoria Derby Day showdown on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival will also feature the James & Bart Cummings-trained Golden Rose winner Hallowed Crown who races in the Roman Consul Stakes in Sydney this weekend.

The Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick is also scheduled as the first-up run for today’s hit-out runner-up Time For War, who was ridden by Tye Angland, the dual Group 2 winning Snitzel colt not having raced since a sixth to 2014 Cox Plate-bound Almalad in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane on July 7.

Gai Waterhouse’s Al Maher gelding Almalad has had three runs this time in including a Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) win under the lights at Moonee Valley last Friday night in the ideal Caulfield Guineas lead-up.
