Golden Rose Target for Boom VIC Colt
Trainer Ciaron Maher has confirmed that unbeaten Victorian colt Merchant Navy will be aimed at the $1 million Gr1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney in the spring, reports Racing And Sports. Merchant Navy (Fastnet Rock-Legally Bay, by Snippets) extended his perfect record to 3 wins from as many starts when opening his stakes account in the Listed Anzac Day Stakes (1400m) at Flemington in April. Maher plans on giving the son of Fastnet Rock a lead-up run in either the Gr3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 27 August, or the G2 Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill on 9 September. The Golden Rose will be run at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, 23 September.
