Jamaea to head to the Golden Rose after Furious win

Jamaea was expected to move on to the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes at Randwick on Saturday after winning the second leg of the Princess Series in the Furious Stakes last weekend. 

However the stable have now confirmed that there star sprinter will head to the Golden Rose and chase a little bit of history when attempting to become only the second filly to win the race since Forensics did in 2008.

“We will make a final decision tomorrow but at this stage it’s all guns blazing to the Golden Rose,” Price said.

“She will have an exhibition gallop between races on Thursday at Kembla and then we will look towards next week.”

At the moment the Golden Rose is still slated for a Rosehill Gardens meeting however current Covid Restrictions could see that moved with recent meetings heading to Kembla Grange

TAB all in markets currently have Jamaea a $26 chance to the win the Golden Rose with Godolphins Anamoe red hot favourite at $2 after winning the Run to the Rose impressively. 

Price was an eager observer of Saturday’s three-year-old feature and accepted Anamoe was the horse to beat, off his Group Two performance.

“I think the winner has got improvement in him,” Price said.

“With that said, Count De Rupee actually ran better time than him over the same trip the next race and looked to have won easier.

“I don’t know if there are any chinks in his Anamoe’s armour but he has had a few hiccups in his preparation and I know Jamaea hasn't until this point.

“Getting out to 1400m, I think he will be very hard to beat and I think Remarque will be as well.

“She has earned her chance. We don‘t know if she will run a strong 1400m but she gave every indication she would the other day.”

Jamaica is set to be partnered by apprentice Brock Ryan who rode the filly to victory in Saturdays Furious Stakes.
