Vancouver Tops 2015 Golden Rose Order of Entry

Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winner Vancouver remains firmly at the top of the updated Golden Rose 2015 order of entry for the September classic at Rosehill Gardens this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The three-year-old Medaliga D’Oro colt is the $3.20 top fancy through to win the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1200m) on September 12 and also sits No. 1 on the latest order of entry with a juicy $2.36 million in prize money.

A winner of all four of his runs to date he was last seen scoring a three quarter length victory in the $3 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) in late March and he won his first official spring lead-up trial at Randwick last Friday.

Following Vancouver in the Golden Rose ballot based on eligible prize money earned are the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained dual Group 1 champ Pride Of Dubai ($1,336,100) and another Waterhouse-trained runner English ($823,950).

The only other single figure hope in the latest Golden Rose odds at $8, Street Cry colt Pride Of Dubai won Melbourne’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in late February and was last seen taking out his second elite level the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in early April.

English meanwhile is the current top rated Golden Rose bound filly, the daughter of Encosta De Lago having run second to her star stablemate in the Golden Slipper on the back of a Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) win before her sixth in Sydney’s Sires’ Produce last time out.

She also trialled at Randwick last week and caught the eye with a fast finishing third behind Tony Gollan’s Group 1 winner Temple Of Boom over 840m with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Golden Rose futures markets have English as a $15 shot for the win.

Ahead of her in betting are three $13 third elects with Exosphere, Mogador and Press Statement who sit 22nd, 42nd and sixth respectively in the order of entry.

John O’Shea prepares the promising Lonhro colt Exosphere for Godolphin, the Group 2 winner last seen crossing dead last (16th) in the Golden Slipper while another O’Shea-trained son of Lonhro Mogador comes off a first-up win at Rosehill over 1100m from June.

Also inside the Top 10 in the order of entry for O’Shea are Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes winning Exceed And Excel filly Ottoman ($557,000) and Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes winning colt Furnaces ($304,550) who pay $51 and $26 respectively in betting.

Press Statement meanwhile has amassed $462,775 in prize money to date and is the best fancied Golden Rose hope for Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller.

The Hinchinbrook colt is undefeated in three starts so far and was last seen scoring a Group 1 JJ Atkins win over the Doomben mile in Brisbane on June 6 during the Winter Carnival.

Waller also prepares one of the notable movers up the Golden Rose order of entry, Japonisme, who posted his third win on the trot at Rosehill last Saturday.

The Choisir gelding scored an impressive four length victory over 1100m with Nash Rawiller aboard to boost his prize money earned to $133,365 and improve his chances of a Golden Rose run moving from 25th to 21st on the ballot.

Waller though is leaning away from a run in the Group 1 with the consistent galloper.

The first official Golden Rose lead-up takes place at Randwick on Saturday with the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) where Waterhouse has nominated her flying filly Kimberley Star.

A winner of her past three straight starts, the daughter of Star Witness has won over $220,000 in prize money and would sit inside the Top 20 on the Golden Rose ballot but is not currently nominated for the feature.

The Rosebud nominees that are entered for the Golden Rose are Sires’ Produce runner-up Ragesse (16th), impressive first-up Canterbury winner Sebring Sun (37th), Let’s Make It Rain (31st) and Inner Circle (43rd).
