Vancouver Out of 2015 Spring Racing Carnival

One time favourite for this Saturday’s Golden Rose Stakes, Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winning colt Vancouver has now been ruled out of another run this Spring Racing Carnival in either Sydney or Melbourne.

A winner of four of his five career starts, the nicely-bred Medaglia D’Oro colt has been sent to the paddock as confirmed to stewards by Waterhouse who has been disappointed with his recent work.

After winning his opening four career starts, all in black-type company in Sydney including the $3 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill in late March, Vancouver suffered his first defeat first-up last month.

He went out as the short-priced favourite in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) but was beaten over two lengths when running fourth behind the Chris Waller-trained Japonisme.

Waterhouse then opted not to run her $2.36 million earner in the Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m), won by Saturday’s $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) favourite Exosphere.

She later ruled Vancouver out of the Golden Rose after he performed flatly when third in a 1030m barrier trial at Rosehill on September 1, 2012 Golden Rose winning jockey Tommy Berry unimpressed with the way the youngster felt.

Originally the focus was to then be on a Melbourne bid targeting the $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over the mile on October 10.

Since then however Waterhouse has sent the young star to the paddock saying he would be rested and bought back for next year’s Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Current $4.80 favourite for the Caulfield Guineas is Chris Waller’s JJ Atkins winner Press Statement who ran second in The Run To The Rose first-up and who is also second pick in the markets for this weekend’s Golden Rose in Sydney.

The Mick Price-trained Ready For Victory ($5.50) is the next best in futures Caulfield Guineas betting and is also the only other runner at single figures.

More Than Ready colt Ready For Victory ran a first-up second to another exciting Golden Rose hope Gold Symphony first-up in the Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 29.

He races again on Saturday in Melbourne nominated for the $200,000 Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) won last year by subsequent Caulfield Guineas runner-up Rich Enuff who was beaten only a quarter-length by Shooting To Win in the Group 1 at Caulfield Racecourse.
