Vancouver on Track for 2015 Golden Rose Return

Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winning colt Vancouver is on track for a big spring return including an early Group 1 run in the Golden Rose 2015 in Sydney this September.

Already the rising three-year-old son of Medaglia D’Oro is a very lucrative stallion prospect having amassed over $2.3 million in prize money during his four win career to date.

Undefeated, Vancouver has raced exclusively in black-type company since his debut last October and has progressed from a Listed win in that maiden run to a Group 1 victory last start in the Golden Slipper Stakes, the richest race for juvenile’s in the world, at Rosehill Gardens in March.

He returns to the same track this campaign with Waterhouse making plans to run him in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) on September 12, a race his trainer has saddled up 17 starters in over the years for two seconds and three thirds but no first place finishes as yet.

From there he is set to progress onto Melbourne for a shot at the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over the mile on October 10, another race Waterhouse is yet to win having enjoyed two seconds and two thirds from her eight runners in the three-year-olds classic.

Heading into his spring return Vancouver is scheduled to trail at Randwick next week, a hit-out Waterhouse described her excitement of on Twitter after his strong piece of trackwork on Tuesday morning.

“Vancouver stole the show this AM with Steve O’Halloran in the saddle, “He feels terrific.” Trials @royalrandwick 31st,” Waterhouse Tweeted.

Other gallopers turning three on the first of August that could target the Golden Rose – Caulfield Guineas double include the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Magnus colt Gredington, smart Brisbane based filly Blueberry Hill and Green Card who won at Caulfield by four lengths earlier this month.

There is also a chance Vancouver could progress onto a run in Australasia’s weight-for-age championship, the $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 24.

Waterhouse has run 20 horses in the Cox Plate over the years for two seconds and three thirds, but Vancouver is right up front in early betting at to hand her a maiden win in the ‘race where legends are made’.

All-in Cox Plate odds are led by Hong Kong galloper Able Friend and the John O’Shea-trained Contributer at $9 while Vancouver is just off them paying $13.
