Adelaide Will Not Run in 2015 George Ryder Stakes

Four-year-old globetrotter Adelaide was the headliner of the 17-strong nominations taken for the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) on Monday morning, however it’s looking unlikely that the horse will take his place in the race field at Rosehill this Saturday.

After an impressive career that saw him travel from Europe to America back to Europe before settling in Australia during the spring, Adelaide made his Australian debut in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) on October 25, winning the $3 million race after outstaying his rivals.

Adelaide enjoyed a track gallop at the course proper this morning (Tuesday), in which she was beaten by classy grey mare Catkins. English jockey Ryan Moore partnered the horse, in Sydney for this weekend’s meeting.

James Bester, representing owners Coolmore, believes a run in the 2015 George Ryder Stakes is unnecessary and he can head straight towards the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on April 11.

“The final decision will be down to the trainer Chris Waller but it’s highly unlikely he will run in the George Ryder,” Bester told Sky Racing.

“He doesn’t need a race to bring him on for the Queen Elizabeth.

“Ryan was delighted with his gallop this morning. He was up against a horse who was beaten a nose in a 1300 metre Group One last start so you would expect her to be in front.

“He is a naturally clean winded horse and the George Ryder would have just been a preparatory race and he doesn’t need it.”

Adelaide has yet to make his debut for Chris Waller after transferring from the care of Aidan O’Brien for the season and it looks like he’ll have to wait a little bit longer. The 2015 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is worth $4 million and run on day 2 of The Championships at Randwick on April 11.

Without Adelaide, the George Ryder Stakes is still set to be a top-class affair with the likes of David Hayes & Tom Dabernig’s Criterion, Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) winner Cosmic Endeavour, and Sacred Falls all set to tackle the $1 million race.

The attention is set to shift towards the two Japanese visitors World Ace and Real Impact.
