Caulfield Cup Aim For Rising Romance
Meanwhile, last season's Australian Oaks winner Rising Romance (Ekraar-Post Romance, by Postponed) will also be aimed at the Caulfield Cup, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 4YO daughter of Ekraar, who has been back in work for two months, will have three runs in Sydney before heading to Melbourne for the $3 million mile-and-half feature at Caulfield on 19 October. "Her regular rider said she can't believe the strength about her now," co-trainer Donna Logan said. "She'll get in on the minimum and that's the most suitable race for her this year." She added, "We'll be looking at giving her a trial here at the end of the month and then she'll run in the Tramway Handicap (1400m) at Randwick on September 6 and probably the George Main Stakes (1600m) two weeks later."
