The Group 3 San Domenico Stakes is the feature race of the day at Rosehill this Saturday and a quality field of talented three year old’s are set to compete in the 1100m dash.
Previous winners of the race include Foxwedge (2011), Gold Edition (2006), Charge Forward (2004), Testa Rossa (1999) and Sir Dapper (1983).
Many of these young horses will be resuming in this Group 3 event and 6 horses have accepted for the race.
This year’s race is a very open betting race with four of the six runners under $5.00.
Exceedance won the race in 2019 before finished third in both the Group 2 Run To The Rose and the Group 1 Golden Rose.
For the first time in over four months, it looks likely that we will have a non rain effected track!
There are also plenty of other quality races on the nine race card and my full 2020 San Domenico Stakes Day Best Bets and Preview can be found here.
Race 1 @ 12:05PM over 1500m
Lightly raced five year old mare She’s Ideel can kick start our day off on a winning note. She has been a model of consistentcy throughout her short eight-start career having won four times and been unplaced just once. She has drawn well in barrier five for this first up assignment and the early suggests she is ready to perform fresh.

Race 5 @ 2:30PM over 1100m
Mamaragan is a high class colt who is already a winner at Group 2 level when he took out the Skyline Stakes at Randwick on debut. He then proceeded to finish third in two consecutive Group 1 events to close out his autumn campaign. His most recent trial behind the best three year old in the country in Farnan was outstanding and he does look the obvious one in the feature race of the day.

Race 8 @ 4:30PM over 1900m
The Canberra Cup winner Mugatoo will be very tough to beat in Group Premier’s Cup. He was an impressive winner at Listed level first up from a spell and I love the fact that Kris Lees has given him a trial in between runs for this assignment. He has drawn well in barrier three which means Kerrin McEvoy can give him a soft run in transit and he is one of the best bets of the day.
