Kimberley Star Considered for The Rosebud 2015

Tulloch Lodge representative Mark Newnham has confirmed plans to look at Saturday’s 2015 The Rosebud field to see if the stable’s exciting filly Kimberley Star will run in the Royal Randwick support act.

A lead-up race to youngster’s heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 12, this weekend’s $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) attracted an original nine early entries.

One of two black-type races on Missile Stakes Day to kick off the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival action for another season, The Rosebud nominations are full of class.

Key nominees for the quality handicap for three-year-olds include Gary Portelli’s impressive first-up Canterbury winning Sebring colt Sebring Sun and the Team Hawkes-trained Street Cry colt Rageese who was runner-up behind Pride Of Dubai in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at the track back in early April during The Championships.

Gai Waterhouse is also looking at running a top hope in the feature with Star Witness filly Kimberley Star coming off three straight wins.

A seven-time starter to date the up-and-comer has posted all three of her career runs in her three most recent starts.

Her maiden success was on a Heavy (9) Warwick Farm track on July 1 before she saluted in the wet again this time at Randwick over f1400m on July 11 and then beat home More Than Fabulous by an impressive three lengths last time out on a Soft (6) at Rosehill only last Saturday.

If accepted into The Rosebud field she’ll be shooting for four on the trot and will also be dropping back in distance but going up in class for her first black-type assignment on the short seven day turnaround.

Newnham confirmed the filly had come through her win in the $85,000 Structaflor Yellowtongue Plate (1400m), where Blake Shinn rode her to victory as the $2.80 favourite, well and that a quick back-up was a high possibility.

“Gai’s intention was to nominate and have a look at the field,” Newnham told AAP.

Last year’s The Rosebud winner was the Paul Messara-trained Scissor Kick who went on to win the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) before a brave second behind Hallowed Crown in the Golden Rose as a 12/1 shot.

This year’s Up And Coming Stakes runs on Warwick Stakes Day back at Randwick on August 22 and is the likely next-up assignment for the best performing three-year-olds in The Rosebud on Saturday.

Early Golden Rose odds are already open online at with Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winner Vancouver the red hot $3.20 favourite.

Team Snowden’s dual Group 1 winner Pride Of Dubai ($8) is the next best in betting as the only other single figure fancy while Kimberley Star is yet to be added into the markets.
