Rosehill Guineas 2011 Race Preview

February 2nd, 2011

The 2011 Rosehill Guineas will be held on Saturday March 26, 2011 as the feature race of the popular Rosehill Guineas Day.

Worth $500,000 the 2011 Rosehill Guineas will be run over a distance of 2000 metres and is open to all three-year-old colts, fillies and geldings.

Run under set weight conditions the Rosehill Guineas is operated by the Sydney Turf Club and run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.

Betting on these two races, as well as the AJC Australia Derby, with Luxbet can be a great way to clean up on the horses this autumn racing season.

The Group 1 Rosehill Guineas is run as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and is the second instalment in the lucrative Triple Crown series for three-year-olds.

The first race in the three part series is the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) and the final leg is the $1,350,000 AJC Australian Derby (2,400m).

Most horses will contest all three legs of the Triple Crown, and for this reason punters should carefully watch the Randwick Guineas, which takes place on Saturday March 12, 2011.

11 of the last 15 winners of the Rosehill Guineas ran in the Randwick Guineas two weeks before.

Betting on these two races, as well as the AJC Australia Derby, with Luxbet can be a great way to clean up on the horses this autumn racing season.

The 2011 Rosehill Guineas is expected to be contested by Chris Waller’s high achieving colt Pressday, as well as Dean Lawson’s Mr Chard.

Dean Lawson is extremely confident of Mr Chard’s staying ability.

“I’d like to tackle the Rosehill Guineas and if he stays the AJC Derby. I think he’ll get 2000m at least,” Mr Lawson said.

Another likely contender is David Payne’s Praecido who, while winning only one of his thirteen starts so far, finished an admirable second to Lion Tamer in the 2010 Victoria Derby.

“He won’t be competitive until he gets up to 2000m in the Rosehill Guineas,” Mr Payne said.
