Raphael’s Cat Genuine Run To The Rose 2015 Hope

Gai Waterhouse has a high opinion of both her horse and his hoop in this Saturday’s 2015 The Run To The Rose with Raphael’s Cat to be ridden by “brilliant young rider” Adam Hyeronimus.

Waterhouse is putting her faith in Hyeronimus at Rosehill Gardens this weekend rewarding the up-and-coming jockey with two exciting rides on the card, including aboard her last start Canterbury winner Raphael’s Cat in the day’s feature race.

“Adam rides a lot for me and has been with me quite some time,” Waterhouse told AAP.

“I think he’s a brilliant young rider.

“I think he’s right up there with the best riders in Sydney.”

A three-year-old Redoute’s Choice colt, Raphael’s Cat is one of seven gallopers facing off in the $175,000 Group 2 MTA NSW Run To The Rose (1200m) and jumps from barrier four with Hyeronimus taking over for Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Shinn was aboard the galloper first-up on August 19 when Raphael’s Cat won a Benchmark 67 over 1200m, his first run since finishing a below par seventh to Tarquin in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill back in mid-March.

Raphael’s Cat is the only Waterhouse-trained The Run To The Rose hope this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival after she opted not to run her $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) favourite Vancouver in the traditional lead-up.

While Raphael’s Cat isn’t heading towards the September 12 feature back at Rosehill, she is confident the colt can win on the weekend and score The Run To The Rose upset as an $8.50 chance through Ladbrokes.com.au.

“He’s a very talented young horse,” Waterhouse said.

“To even consider putting him in a Group 2 shows our opinion of him.

“He’s just a lovely precocious son of Redoute’s Choice.”

The Run To The Rose betting is led by Chris Waller’s Japonisme ($2.45) who comes off four consecutive wins including the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes last start, and gets the run of the race from barrier one.

Waller also saddles-up $5 chance Press Statement, the undefeated Group 1 JJ Atkins winner first-up for the spring.

Hyeronimus’s other ride at Rosehill on Saturday is aboard the progressive River Wild who is the $1.85 odds-on favourite to win Race 3 – the $85,000 McGrath Estate Agents Handicap (1400m).

Drawn the outside alley in a small eight starter field of three-year-olds in the BenchMark 72, lightly raced Fastnet Rock colt River Wild has had just the one run to date when Paul King rode him to a blistering six length victory over 1300m at Kembla Grange on August 15.

“He’s really an exciting horse,” Waterhouse said of the brother of Group 1 winning mare Aqua D’Amore and Group 2 champ Petrology, who runs in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield this weekend.

“I think he’ll get further. I don’t think you’ll see the best of him in the spring. I think he’s very much an autumn horse.”
