Rothesay Wins Queensland Guineas

Monday, 14th June 2010

Multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when favoured colt Rothesay (Fastnet Rock-Schiaparelli, by Woodman) notched his 2nd successive group victory in 3 weeks with a 3.25-lengths win in the $250,000 Gr2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Rothesay (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Gerald Ryan) defeated the geldings Launay (Lonhro-Eve In Seychelles, by Palace Music) & Fifteen Carat (Show A Heart-Brynica, by Snippets). Rothesay (passed-in for $140,000 as a yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 4 wins (also including last start's Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup over 1615m at Doomben on May 22) & 2 placings (including April's Listed Gosford Guineas over 1200m) from 7 starts for $384,150 earnings.
