One Thing I Noticed
(FRI) September 17th, 2021
5:55 p.m. Looking at the racing form of Rose Stakes. Yes, the barrier draw has been announced though Centlight Kinen would be anounced later since it's held a day later.
Haven't researched Rose Stakes so can't say much about it. One thing I noticed is that there's only one horse that run both Ohka-sho and Oaks, Art de Vivre. This means that the level of the race might not be as tough as the usual Rose Stakes. Rose Stakes is a trial race for Shuka-sho and annually, top female 3-year-olds start their autumn season with this race.
So it could become a race between horses that performed relatively well in Oaks and the potential new comers that didn't make it to the spring classics. Anyhow, I'd value the aptitude for fast tracks and instantaneous speed if Iwere to buy betting tickets for example, Tagano Passion, Andvaranaut, Cordial, or Art de Vivre.
