3yo colt MILITARIZE & Joao Moreira announced their Spring arrival when storming home in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes at Rosehill to post the most dramatic and impressive of wins in the style of a serious colt. There is no one better than Joao in a tight spot and he conjured all his magic to find the route to victory. This win marks Joso’s third consecutive Group 1 win on MILITARIZE and this partnership made in heaven is far from done this Spring with a Caulfield Guineas & Cox Plate around the corner.
Congratulations to Henry Field & all our partners in the colt partnership on the exciting win from an important colt to us all. Our dominant Group 1 winner at 2 is now a Golden Rose winner as a 3yo and as good a 3yo in the country. A stunner on looks by DUNDEEL ex DUBAWI mare – he ticks all the boxes we look for in a stallion. The future is bright with this win marking Sir Owen’s & the Newgate partnership’s 2nd win in this contest from the past 3 years.
