Slipper Winner Heads Gun Run To The Rose 2020 Nominations

A hot field of gun three-year-olds are nominated for the official 2020 Golden Rose lead-up at Rosehill on Saturday including Golden Slipper winner Farnan who is set to resume in the Group 2 $200,000 The Run To The Rose (1200m).

Eleven youngsters heading towards a run in the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) back at the track on September 26 make up the early entries for the 2020 The Run To The Rose in Sydney on the weekend.

It is shaping-up as a red-hot edition and all-in The Run To The Rose betting is dominated by the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Farnan at $2.70 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The talented Not A Single Doubt colt has won five of his six starts to date and is two-from-two at the Rosehill track ahead of his campaign kick-off.

He went out a three-time winner on the trot with two Group 2 victories before his impressive victory by nearly two lengths in the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21.

Farnan has been brought on fitness-wise with two winning trials in August, the latest at Randwick over 1050m by nearly four lengths, and looks the one to beat.

Co-trainer Waterhouse has won the race twice in the past 20 years, most recently with her boom colt Pierro (2012) who also won the Golden Slipper as a juvenile.

Also resuming in The Run To The Rose is the current $4.60 second-elect Rothfire for Brisbane’s Robert Heathcote.

The Rothesay gelding, like Farnan, has been beaten just once having enjoyed a stellar two-year-old season winning six of his seven starts and finishing second in the other.

He was last seen taking out the Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) over the mile at Eagle Farm by over three lengths back in June and makes his interstate debut in The Run To The Rose.

Following closely in The Run To The Rose odds pre-final acceptances at $5 is the in-form North Pacific for Hawkes Racing.

The nicely-bred Brazen Beau colt debuted in February’s Group 2 Silver Slipper running third to Farnan before heading out for a break.

He returned in the winter for an eye-catching win at the track over 1100m by two and a half lengths before hitting headlines with his August 15 victory in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes.

North Pacific flashed home over the 1300m for a powerhouse five length win as the odds-on favourite that day, form he will be out to repeat over the shorter distance on Saturday.

Also in cracking form this campaign and out to extend a winning streak in the event is Anders ($7) for Ciaron Maher & David Eustace.

The Not A Single Doubt colt has won his past four on the trot including a five-length win in the Listed The Rosebud (1100m).

He was equally as dominant last start when, on August 29, he recorded a tidy victory over fellow The Run To The Rose nominees Peltzer and Mamaragan in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

The Maher & Eustace stable have also nominated for $1.6 million colt Prague, the son of Redoute’s Choice having won the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes at the track and distance in mid-March.

He went on to run sixth in the Golden Slipper before a last start second at Randwick behind King’s Legacy in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

Team Snowden’s Sires’ Produce winner King’s Legacy franked that form winning the Group 1 Champagne Classic (1600m) in April and is also nominated for a The Run To The Rose start fresh on the weekend.
