2016 San Domenico Target for Tango Rain

Gerald Ryan’s Golden Rose-bound youngster Tango Rain is down to race again and make his three-year-old debut in next month’s San Domenico Stakes 2016.

The undefeated Manhattan Rain colt has won both of his career starts to date, but is as yet untested in Black-Type company.

On debut Tango Rain won over 1100m at Canterbury on June 22 where he returned stepping up to 1200m on a Heavy (8) track to win again last Saturday.

His Rosehill-based trainer has since locked in a spring kick-off at the youngster’s home track on August 13 in the $150,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m), happy with how the up-and-comer came through his latest win.

“He’s as good as gold and I’m looking forward to the San Domenico. It is the race I always think starts the spring carnival,” Ryan told AAP.

“And I’ve won it twice with Snitzerland (2012) and Zariz (2000).”

Snitzerland went on to win her next three runs on the trot after her San Domenico Stakes success, while Zariz took out the Group 2 Up & Coming Stakes (1200m) a fortnight after his win six years ago.

Last year’s San Domenico Stakes winner meanwhile was the Chris Waller-trained Japonisme (2015) who went on to take out the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Ryan is hoping to have Tango Rain return to Rosehill Gardens the following month after the San Domenico Stakes for a much tougher assignment in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 10.

If Tango Rain makes the Golden Rose field he will become Ryan’s 10th starter in the three-years-old Sydney Spring Racing Carnival classic.

From his previous nine runners, Ryan has had just one third place finish in a Golden Rose and currently Tango Rain pays $31 in all-in betting at Ladbrokes.com.au for the million dollar showdown.

The last three-year-old to complete the San Domenico Stakes – Golden Rose Stakes double was Duporth (2008) who took out the second edition of the Group 1 that year when the Golden Rose ran twice in March (Forensics) and August.

Should he stay on the Golden Rose Stakes path, a run between the San Domenico Stakes and the Group 1 in the $175,000 Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) on August 27 is most likely on the agenda for Tango Rain.

The four most recent Golden Rose winners came off a Run To The Rose start including Hallowed Crown (2014) and Exosphere (2015) who both completed the double.
