Blinkers on Yankee Rose in Golden Rose 2016

The now Queensland-based David Vandyke is expected to add blinkers to the gear of 2016 Golden Rose hope Yankee Rose in Saturday week’s Group 1 to try and bring the best form out of the filly.

On Tuesday morning the three-year-old daughter of All American lined-up in the first heat at the Sunshine Coast and put in a fair performance in the 1270m hit-out after her minor injury setback last week.

Vandyke wasn’t exactly blown away by her efforts, but expects her to show up and turn it up for her resuming run of the season on September 10 at Rosehill Gardens.

“I was a bit disappointed but she has always been a different horse under race pressure,” Vandyke told AAP post-trial.

To date Yankee Rose has won three of her four career starts including the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in early April.

That followed her only loss so far when second as a 21/1 shot behind Capitalist in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill in March.

She returns to that track for her spring kick-off in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at her preferred distance and will have blinkers on to help sharpen her performance.

Yankee Rose’s opening two career starts were also both at Rosehill Gardens last spring giving her plenty of form at the track.

With Golden Slipper winner Capitalist out of the Golden Rose Stakes this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the markets on the classic have opened up.

Yankee Rose is one of the big drifters in pre-field markets at out to $11 as a host of other three-year-olds have staked their early claims with lead-up runs this time in.

She will be Zac Purton, chasing his first Golden Rose Stakes victory, who was aboard for both the Slipper and Sires’ Produce runs in the autumn.

Current $4.40 favourite is the John O’Shea-trained Astern who won last Saturday’s Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) and now chases a double completed by both Hallowed Crown (2014) and Exosphere (2015) over the past two years.

The best fancied of the fillies in the mix looking to be the first female Golden Rose Stakes winner since Forensics (2008) is the Chris Waller-trained Silver Shadow Stakes champ Omei Sword.

Waller’s progressive daughter of High Chaparral is nominated for a possible run this Saturday in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.

She is tipped to enjoy more distance this campaign and is the early $3.80 favourite to win Caulfield’s $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) over the mile in Melbourne on October 8.

Yankee rose occupies the second line of Thousand Guineas betting at $7 and is also entered for the $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 22 paying $17 in markets for the weight-for-age classic.
