The Group 1 Rosehill Guineas has been won by John Bary’s Jimmy Choux in Race 7 at Rosehill Gardens today March 26, 2011.
This was Jimmy Choux’s first race start in Australia, with the three-year-old Thorn Park colt winning seven Group 1 races in New Zealand, including the Group 1 New Zealand Derby last start on March 5, 2011.
The 2011 Rosehill Guineas began began when Retrieve shot to the lead early ahead of Light Brigade and Shamrocker, while Praecido was caught wide throughout the majority of the race.
Retrieve appeared to be holding off the rest of the field down the home straight until Jimmy Choux surged up the outside to win one of the most prestigious three-year-old races on the horse racing calendar.
Retrieve held on well to past the post second, while recent Australian Guineas winner Shamrocker rounded out the placings in third position.
Jimmy Choux was the favourite for the 2011 Rosehill Guineas at Luxbet, paying odds of $5 for the win.
Jimmy Choux has now won seven of his past eight starts and will head towards the AJC Derby at Randwick Racecourse on April 9, 2011.
