2017 Sky Racing Rosehill Guineas Group 1 March 18 - Rosehill
Gingernuts wins 2017 Sky Racing Rosehill Guineas Group 1 $600,000 at Rosehill (NSW) 3yo, 2000m.
The New Zealand Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) winner Gingernuts was impressive at his Australian debut in scoring a very strong win here. He settled back in tenth place, moved up smartly from the 600m, was a distant third on straightening, got to the front at the 200m and then went on to score decisively, staking claims for the upcoming ATC Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) in the process.
The Randwick Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) winner Inference settled back in ninth place, improved from the 600m, was a distant fourth at the 300m and kept running on well for second without threatening the winner.
So Si Bon was sixth, one off the rails, made a wide move nearing the home turn and went to a distant second on turning for home. He then battled on quite well to take the minor placing.
Anaheim raced in last place in the 12-horse field, went deep coming to the home turn and made ground for (4.3 lengths) fourth.
Harper’s Choice soon went to the front and set up a big lead coming to the 600m. He was overtaken at the 300m and then held on for (4.4 lengths) fifth after running a bold race while Impavido was near last, went deep from the 600m and kept battling on solidly for (5.9 lengths) sixth in a promising effort at only his fifth race start.
