ROSEHILL GARDENS WARMS UP TO TOAST 66th RUNNING OF BOWERMANS WINTER CUP
June 1, 2023
Rosehill Gardens hosts the 66th running of the Listed $160,000 Bowerman Winter Cup on Saturday as part of the Australian Turf Club’s series of winter middle distance and staying events across June.
Saturday’s 10-race card has attracted 144 entries with the Listed Bowermans Winter Cup followed in coming weeks by the Listed $160,000 W J McKell Cup at Rosehill Gardens on 17 June and $150,000 Stayers Cup at Royal Randwick over 2600m on 24 June.
Sydney’s 12-time premiership winning trainer Chris Waller has a strong hand in Saturday’s feature with three runners including the early TAB Fixed Odds favourite Al Aabir ($3.50-$3.70) with jockey Kerrin McEvoy.
Chris Waller has won three of the past nine runnings of the Winter Cup and also has Desert Icon (Brett Prebble) $8-$7.50 TAB and Shameless Miss (Kathy O’Hara) $15-$16 TAB in the race on the stable’s home track.
Jockey Kerrin McEvoy rode Niwot to victory in the 2009 Winter Cup before that horse went on to win a Schweppes Sydney Cup – a double also completed in recent years by Knights Order (2021 Winter Cup and 2022 Schweppes Sydney Cup).
Jockey Sam Clipperton for trainer Annabel Neasham rides second favourite Spirit Ridge ($6 TAB Fixed).
Clipperton rode the remarkable Destiny’s Kiss to victory in the Winter Cup in 2019 some six years after that horse won his own first Winter Cup at Rosehill Gardens.
Race 1 is due to start at 11am with the final race to be run at 4.20pm.
A track report recorded on Thursday morning with Rosehill Gardens Racecourse Manager Shaun Patterson is available here.
Punters Packs are loaded with value and include one General Admission entry ticket, two Furphy vouchers, a $10 food voucher, and a racebook.
Punters Packs can be purchased online at theraces.com.au up until 4.30pm on the Friday prior and collected on raceday at the Wagering Concierge in the Betting Ring.
