The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas, which is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday March 31, 2012.
20 horses have accepted for the 2012 Rosehill Guineas, leaving a final field of 18 runners plus two emergencies.
Strike The Stars is included in the 2012 Rosehill Guineas final field and barrier draw.
The three-year-old gelding finished seventh in his most recent race start in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas behind Mosheen, who will not be racing in this Saturday’s race.
Strike The Stars has won one of his ten race starts and has earned more than $315,000 in prize money.
The Savabeel gelding has drawn barrier four for the 2012 Rosehill Guineas and will be ridden by jcokey Blake Shinn in the race.
Sangster has also drawn well for the 2012 Rosehill Guineas and has drawn gate seven for the race.
The three-year-old is expected to jump from barrier six after emergencies are scratched.
Trainer Trent Busuttin is confident of Sangster’s chances in the 2012 Rosehill Guineas after his great draw.
“That 2000-metre start at Rosehill, it’s not a great place to draw wide and any trainer that tells you barrier draws don’t matter, it’s their horse that has drawn wide,” Busuttin said.
“You can’t beat barrier draws, especially at this level when there’s not much between the field.
“I was desperate to get a good draw with our horse and have him tucked up sixth, seventh or eighth and racing with cover and chasing something.
“I was more upbeat after the barrier draw than before it.”
Galah and Highly Recommended are also included in the 2012 Rosehill Guineas final field and barrier draw.
