2016 Golden Rose Target for Tango Rain

Gerald Ryan’s undefeated colt Tango Rain is back on show at Canterbury Park on Saturday working towards a Golden Rose Stakes 2016 assignment this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The talented Manhattan Rain two-year-old won at the track over 1100m on debut back on June 22 and has subsequently saluted in a 1050m barrier trial at Royal Randwick.

This weekend Tango Rain races in the first at Canterbury, the $85,000 Happy 70th Birthday Martin King Handicap (1200m) from barrier seven with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle once again.

He is one of the top fancies in betting at $8.50 through Ladbrokes.com.au to keep his undefeated status in check, markets led by the Tommy Berry-ridden top weight Thronum ($2.90) from the Gai Waterhouse stables who has won both his starts to date.

The latest was with Berry aboard with 57kg, two kilos under his allocated weight for the weekend, when easily accounting for Morton’s Fork over 1200m on a Heavy (9) Randwick track by three lengths at the start of the month.

Ryan is hoping for a good showing from his runner Tango Rain on the back of last week’s good hit-out, the promising youngster being set for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 10.

“I’ve just poked around with him. I thought he trialled well at Randwick. I didn’t want to back off him too much because he’s a pretty gross horse,” he told Sporting News.

“He’s fit and well and has won on a Soft (7) but what he’s like on a heavy track, I wouldn’t have a clue.”

Tango Rain and Thronum are two of seven last start winners in the mix for the Canterbury clash this weekend, a race Ryan believes should hold Black-Type status based on the class of the competitors who are all out to stake their spring claims.

“I don’t think there is any difference, especially when you consider the quality of two-year-olds we’ve seen towards the back end of this season,” he said.

“It’s a very good race on Saturday so we’ll have a fair idea of where he [Tango Rain] sits. It will be a good test for all of them.”

Being only lightly-raced and untested in the juvenile features of the autumn like the Golden Slipper and ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes, won by Capitalist and Yankee Rose respectively, Tango Rain is only rated a $61 roughie in the current all-in Golden Rose Stakes betting odds.

Ryan has saddled-up nine Golden Rose starters to date for just the one third place finish and has a total of nine gallopers among the first acceptances for this year’s edition.

The current shortest-priced of his hopefuls is Sahara Emaar ($31), plenty of hype on the unraced Snitzel colt who has solid trial form from February behind Group 1 Champagne Stakes winner Prized Icon and the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Group 2 winner Attention.

All going to plan, Ryan is set to put Tango Rain on the traditional spring path into the Golden Rose via runs in the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) on August 6 at Randwick and $175,000 Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) on August 27 at Rosehill.

“He might end up in the Rosebud, and possibly Golden Rose if he measures up,” the Rosehill-based trainer said.
