Exosphere Wins Gr2 Run To The Rose
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, former Champion Australian Sire & 11-time Gr1-winning Darley World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a Group success when Godolphin's exciting 3YO colt Exosphere (Lonhro-Altitude, by Danzero) resumed with a brilliant 1.3-length win for trainer John O'Shea in the $175,000 Gr2 Run To The Rose (1200m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO colts Press Statement (Hinchinbrook-Kaaptive Empress, by Kaaptive Edition) & Holler (Commands-Shouts, by Strategic). This was an outstanding return to racing by Exosphere who took his record to 3 wins (including the Gr2 ATC Skyline Stakes) from 5 starts for $231,950 earnings. Trainer John O'Shea said that Exosphere would next be seen in the $1 million Gr1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on 12 September. "He was soft late, he didn't have a hard run and he should go forward from that," O'Shea said. "You will see him in the Rose in a fortnight."
