Bring Me The Maid After Historical Golden Rose Win

Peter Moody may be sweating on a 2014 Golden Rose start for his colt Better Land but he is guaranteed at least one top fancy in the race with his filly Bring Me The Maid chasing history at Rosehill Garden son Saturday.

The opening elite level of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, this weekend’s $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) could feature three fillies looking the first to win the race since its move from the autumn.

The last Golden Rose winning filly was Forensics back in 2008 on the back of a one year hiatus due to the equine influenza in 2007 before the race was moved to the spring in 2009.

Since then all the Golden Rose winners have been colts and geldings with: Denman (2009), Toorak Toff (2010), Manawanui (2011), Epaulette (2012) and Zoustar (2013) setting the trend for the boys.

Pre-field Golden Rose betting favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au Bring Me The Maid will be out to break a hoodoo for the fillies then as will likely rivals Ygritte coming off a third to Hallowed Crown in the Run To the Rose and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Echo Gal who has won her past two starts at Canterbury.

Installed as the $4.20 favourite to win, Bring Me The Maid sits above James & Bart Cummings’ undefeated Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown who took his record to three wins from as many starts in the Group 3 Run To The Rose (1200m) on August 30.

Three-time Golden Rose winning jockey Hugh Bowman will partner Hallowed Crown on Saturday.

Third in that race for Gerald Ryan, Snitzel filly Ygritte meanwhile pays $26 in Golden Rose odds while Echo Gal, in danger of missing a start, is the $101 outsider.

Along with Ygritte Ryan could also have his All American colt Bachman, not seen since a ninth to Go Indy Go in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) on April 26, and possibly even Washington Heights in the field.

Commands colt Washington Heights was a first-up second to Nostradamus in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on August 16 but failed on a wet track over the weekend when running sixth to Panzer Divison in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m) as the beaten favourite on a Heavy (9) Randwick track.

Moody meanwhile is also hoping for some defectors in the top 19 on the Golden Rose ballot at final acceptance stage tomorrow so current 20th on the order of entry, Better Land, can sneak into the field joining his stable mate Bring Me The Maid.

Both Better Land and Bring Me The Maid worked at Randwick on Sunday and pleased Moody, who made the trip to be trackside in Sydney, with their gallops.

“Pete was very happy with them,” Moody’s Sydney stable representative Claire Cunningham told The Daily Telegraph.

“Bring Me The Maid and Better Land both looked to go very well and hit the line together.

“The filly is in really good condition and has improved since her last start.

“The colt is in great order. He is capable of running well if he gets into the field.”

Stay tuned to Races.com.au to view the official 2014 Golden Rose field tomorrow morning with the barrier draw also set to take place at 10:15am on Tuesday.
