Hallowed Crown Returns in “Cracker” Hobartville Stakes 2015

Co-trainer James Cummings has declared the 2015 Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday as the “race of the day” with a cracker field for his returning Golden Rose winner Hallowed Crown to race against first-up.

A bumper 17 nominations were released on Monday for the weekend’s $200,000 Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m), the set weights race for three-year-olds to feature a host of returning Group 1 performers up against some in-form gallopers that boast the edge fitness-wise.

One of the headline hopefuls is Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown prepared by James Cummings and his legendary grandfather Bart.

A winner of four of his five starts to date the 2015 Australian Derby-bound youngster is best known for his Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) victory over Scissor Kick from last September.

He races for the first time since running fourth to the Chris Waller-trained subsequent Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes winner Brazen Beau, who comes up against Deep Field and Lankan Rupee first-up in Flemington’s Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes on Saturday, in the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m).

Having pleased in his trials this year Hallowed Crown, a winner of both his previous first-up runs, is travelling sweetly for the Hobartville Stakes return after which he’ll go second-up into the $600,000 Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) on March 7.

“I couldn’t be happier with where we are at with Hallowed Crown, that gallop on Saturday was a hit-out that he really needed to tackle the 1400 metres first-up,” Cummings told Racenet.

“I have been really focused on having his condition spot on to tackle the mile second-up.

“With several of these colts also valuable stallion propositions, it is important to have them wound-up to win every time they go around.”

It is a star-studded field of potential rivals including Waller’s Victoria Derby winner Preferment, the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Caulfield Guineas hero Shooting To Win and Gai Waterhouse’s Spring Champion Stakes champ Hampton Court.

Those entries along with Hallowed Crown are the resuming Group 1 winners who must face off against the likes of Scissor Kick and Delectation who ran one-two in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) first-up on February 7.

“What a cracker of a race it will be,” Cummings said.

“Race fitness versus Group I winning form. It will be the race of the day.”
