Healthy Noms For Golden Rose Day
Racing NSW has received 280 nominations for Saturday's Golden Rose meeting at Rosehill. The $1 million Gr1 Golden Rose (1400m) is the feature event on the 8-race card and has attracted some of the best 3YO talent from Sydney and Victoria with a huge 163 nominations in total. Topping the order of entry is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Golden Slipper winner Overreach with $2.3 million in prizemoney. Overreach's spring campaign was in jeopardy after a poor barrier trial performance in August, but following her 1.75-length trial win at Randwick yesterday the daughter of reigning champion Australian sire Exceed and Excel may yet play a part in Saturday's big race. The Tony Vasil-trained Prince Harada, a most unlucky runner-up at his most recent outing, is the current $4 favourite ahead of Fast 'n' Rocking ($5) & Zoustar ($8).
