Vancouver Heads San Domenico Nominations
Golden Slipper hero Vancouver heads the nominations for Saturday's Gr3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens. The unbeaten son of Medaglia d'Oro has been allotted top weight of 60kg for the $125,000 3YO feature which has also attracted entries from Gr2 Silver Slipper winner Headwater, promising sprinter Japonisme, Snitzel's three-quarter brother King's Troop, and Exceed And Excel gelding Haptic, impressive winner of the Listed Lonhro Plate at Randwick in February. The only unraced entry is the Bryce Heys-trained colt Spieth, a $200,000 NZB purchase by Thorn Park who was a recent 4.3-length trial winner at Randwick on 31 July. Spieth is a direct descendent of the Chop Chop mare Ciboulette, dam of celebrated blue hen Fanfreluche. Click here to view all nominations for Rosehill on Saturday.
