Sustained support suggests Yankee Rose will bloom
Was trainer David Vandyke foxing when he said was unsure whether Yankee Rose would finish top three in the Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill tomorrow?
UBET punters seem to think so, because the Sunshine Coast-based filly has been crunched like abs since the barrier draw and the cash keeps pouring in.
“We went up $10, she’s now $5.00 – her quote has halved since Tuesday,” said UBET spokesperson Nick Curry.
“Nearly two thirds of the money waged on the feature is for her, which is extraordinary when you consider the quality of the field and her well-publicized track work and trial struggles.”
“That said, if she’s anywhere near her best, she’ll give it a red hot shake.”
Omei Sword remains favourite for the million dollar feature, albeit an easing one at $3.80, with Run To The Rose winner Astern on the second line at $4.40.
Should either Yankee Rose or Omei Sword salute, they’ll become the first fillies to claim the race since it was elevated to Group 1 status in 2009.
