Horses To Follow - 3 Horses to follow from the racing at Caulfield and Rosehill on Saturday July 15

  • What gallopers caught the eye at Caulfield and Rosehill on Saturday July 15?
Windbern claimed victory in a controversial race at Caulfield on Saturday July 15

Racing was at Caulfield on Saturday July 15 and there were a number of gallopers that caught the eye, while in Sydney, the action was at Rosehill, where a two-year-old staked his claims for bigger and better things. 

Here are our three to follow from the respective venues. 

Caulfield Race 4 - Laming Racing Handicap (2000 METRES)- Kiwia

The Darren Weir-trained Kiwia lined up as a well-backed favourite in the Laming Racing Handicap (2000m) but could only manage 4th to Windbern. However, the talk after the race centred on the carnage produced by the jockey of the winner in Dwayne Dunn, who copped an 18-meeting suspension for causing severe interference to a number of runners. Kiwia was one that was caught in the demolition and knuckled badly at the 200m mark. Prior to that, he was held up for room from the 600m mark. If you took the $2.15 it may be worth forgiving the son of Reset, who is likely to be put away for a spell. Keep an eye out for him later this year. 

Caulfield Race 6 - TAB Supports Jockeys Trust Handicap (1400 METRES)- My Paisann

The three-year-olds lined up in Race 6 of the day, which was taken out by Nikitas. One that caught the eye from the back of the field was the Lisa Enright-Trained My Paisann, who was one of few horses on the day to make up good ground in the concluding stages. The former Kiwi, who was a winner at Caulfield at his previous start, started as an easing $10 chance and was simply too far back to threaten the winner. But the son or Roc De Cambes gives the impression he will be better over further ground and can go on with the job. 

Rosehill Race 1 - #THERACES HANDICAP (1400 METRES)- Siege Of Quebec

We only had to wait for the completion of one race at Rosehill to find a blackbooker after Siege Of Quebec took out the opener. The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained galloper overcame the Chris Waller-trained Calculated in what was a thrilling finish after that pair cleared away by four lengths from the 3rd placegetter, Condor. The well-bred Siege Of Quebec was lining up for just his second career start and really knuckled to the task when the pressure came. Bott, who was clearly excited with the performance following the race, will now plot a path for the son of Fastnet Rock to head to the Ming Dynasty (1400m) in August, before tackling the $1 million Golden Rose in September.
