What You Missed: Rosehill Gardens

By Brad Gray

All of the bits and pieces of news that came out of the Golden Rose meeting at Rosehill Gardens.

Paret Throws It Away Paret “threw the race away” according to Hugh Bowman who piloted the boom colt in the opener at Rosehill.

After Bowman peeled off the back of eventual winner Beau Geste it looked as though he was set to reel him in but he inexplicably ducked out before half bucking.

“He has obviously got talent there is no question about it but he needs to get into a pattern. He threw it away in the final stages so there is a couple of chinks in his armour but we’ll iron those out,” Bowman said.

As for the little performance Paret put on 100m out from the line Bowman said he “just had a bit of a play.”

The spring might come too soon for the Harbour Watch three-year-old but make sure you highlight him in your blackbook for the autumn. The stable suggested he’d be seen again at least one more time this campaign to get any bad habits out of his sytem.

Egg Tart The Exhibitionist Egg Tart built towards Saturday week’s TAB Epsom Handicap with an exhibition gallop at Rosehill Gardens between races.

The four-year-old mare galloped over 1000m only warming up her last 600m which she ran in in 35.58s.

“It was a nice pipe opener,” Kerrin McEvoy reported upon dismounting.

“She switched on when I wanted her to. Moving well, breathing well and very happy.”

Chris Waller was most pleased about her attitude in the yard observing that she “didn’t turn a hair which was good.”

The four-year-old mare is currently $6 second favourite for the $1m Group One mile feature behind Happy Clapper at $4.60.

Magic Man’s Super Saturday Joao Moreira’s book of rides for next Saturday’s Royal Randwick meeting, highlighted by the Group One Epsom and Metropolitan Handicap, is coming together.

The Hong Kong-based jockey will ride Comin’ Through in the TAB Epsom Handicap and Antonio Guiseppe in The Metropolitan. He’ll also likely ride Mackintosh in the Hill Stakes for Chris Waller as well as two-year-old I Am Invincible filly Fiesta in the Gimcrack Stakes.

Gary Portelli has called on the services of the ‘Magic Man’ to ride Exceltic in the Breeders’ Plate.

Daysee For Days “She’s my little girl.”

The win of Daysee Doom was extra special for leading apprentice Andrew Adkins as it was on his the mare he has previously referred to as his best friend.

“I’m always near her and I ride her all of her work,” Adkins said.

“She had to do it the tough way but that’s how she is. She is tough. She just kept fighting.”

The five-year-old mare looks to have returned in career-best form this spring which will see Ron Quinton aim up at the Angst Stakes next start.

When asked if the daughter of Domeday would run a mile, Quinton, who trained the quinella in the race with Dixie Blossoms running second, cheekily answered “she ran a mile then.”
