23/9/2019  Golden Rose for Yao Dash

The lightly-raced Yao Dash (Smart Missile), the only horse to have beaten Saturday’s Tea Rose Stakes (Gr 2, 1400m) winner Funstar (Adelaide), looks likely to take his place in the Golden Rose Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at Rosehill this weekend. Connections were originally planning to bypass the Group 1 contest, but Dynamic Syndications boss Dean Watt said Yao Dash’s trackwork last week had prompted a change of heart. "It all depends upon how Yao Dash continues handling the pressure in what is his first racing preparation," Watt said. "A final decision on a jockey and whether we accept with Yao Dash in the Golden Rose will be delayed until after his final trackwork gallop on Tuesday morning. It is now more likely than not, Yao Dash would be accepted into the Golden Rose."
