Run To The Rose First-Up For Almalad
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Almalad (Al Maher-Ilhaam, by Secret Savings) galloped impressively between races at Randwick on Saturday and is set to open his spring campaign in the Gr3 Run To The Roses (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on 30 August, reports racingnetwork.com.au. However, the Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes winner is no certainty to run in the $1 million Gr1 Golden Rose, according to Waterhouse's stable foreman Mark Newnham. "He will resume in the Run To The Rose and be aimed towards the Caulfield Guineas and potentially the Cox Plate," Newnham said. "What happens in between is yet to be decided."
