Race Day: Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, 30 March 2019
A heavy downpour last night looked like it could stop racing at Rosehill Gardens today, but the meeting went ahead, and the HEAVY 10 turf had some gremlins in it early.
The first four races were won by horses on the pace; BELLEVUE HILL (1,400 metre Group 3 The Schweppervescence for two-year-olds), TAIKAMOCHI (2,000 metre Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes) and ANGEL OF TRUTH (2,000 metre Group 2 Tulloch Stakes for three-year-olds) all leading from start to finish before INVINCIBLE GEM (1,500 metre Group 2 Emancipation Stakes) fought on best from 2nd in the run.
It wasn't until the on-pacers went "mad" in-front that a swooper could get into the finish, Jason Coyle's mare SIREN'S FURY surging home late to win the 1,200 metre Star Kingdom Stakes after ESTIJAAB had set a rapid tempo in the lead.
The track then evened out for the rest of the day and we were treated to big wins from star filly VERRY ELLEEGANT (2,000 metre Group 1 Vinery Stakes) and the flying AVILIUS (2,400 metre Group 1 Tancred Stakes), both gallopers relishing the softer conditions, AVILIUS once again powering home best off a slower tempo.
