Golden Rose 2011 Final Field, Barrier Draw & Betting Odds

September 7th, 2011

The 2011 Golden Rose is set to run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse this Saturday September 10, 2011.

Just six horses have accepted to be part of the $1 million event, guaranteeing all runners a minimum $10,000 in prize money.

Included in the 2011 Golden Rose final field is Smart Missile, who is the odds-on-favourite for the race, paying odds of $1.80 to win at Luxbet.

Smart Missile will go into the Golden Rose 2011 unbeaten, and will be looking to enact revenge after he was a late scratching from the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

The Fastnet Rock colt is the only horse to have beaten Golden Slipper and Blue Diamond series winner Sepoy during the Group 2 Todman Stakes on March 19, 2011.

Smart Missile also won the Group 3 Run To The Rose ahead of competitors Foxwedge and Helmet in convincing style.

The three-year-old surged to the lead after emerging from the very rear of the field down the final straight.

Also included in the 2011 Golden Rose Stakes final field is Manawanui, whose owners risked the $50,000 late entry fee to give the Oratario gelding a start in the race after he won the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes in a convincing fashion.

Jockey Glyn Schofield will ride Manawanui in the 2011 Golden Rose and is confident that the young gelding has the talent necessary to win the race.

”I rode So You Think here and Hay List but he is right up there,” Schofield said.

”When I first got on him he reminded me a lot of Hay List because he so big and bulky.

”Let’s just hope there isn’t a Black Caviar for him to chase.”

There is a lot of quality in the field but [Manawanui] has the ability to be there,” Schofield said.

”It’s not who they’re talking about leading into the race that matters, it’s who is in the papers on Sunday that counts.”
