Waterhouse/Bott’s The Autumn Sun filly runs away with Rosehill trial

May 3, 2023

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott’s filly Autumn Ballet (The Autumn Sun) won her trial with remarkable ease on Monday, whilst a daughter of G1 Golden Slipper winner Mossfun (Mossman) also looks smart.

There were six heats for the 2-year-olds at Rosehill’s trial on Monday, with some exceptionally well-related winners amongst them, though the clear highlight was Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott’s The Autumn Sun filly, a dominant winner of Heat 8.

Heat 3 – Maher/Eustace’s Anamoe relation takes smooth victory

Sending out five youngsters, over half of the nine juveniles in Heat 3, Ciaron Maher and David Eustace were responsible for the first three home in the first 2-year-old trial at Rosehill on Monday morning.

Burning to the front was Exceed Perfection (Exceed And Excel), who was tracked into the straight by Tiz Invincible (I Am Invincible). Under a tight hold from the moment she left the barriers, Tiz Invincible joined her stablemate with 100 metres to run, edging 0.76l past him at the line.

She completed the 1030-metre workout in 1:02.17, the last 600 metres in 35.07s, and the front pair left Nondisclosure (Dundeel {NZ}) 6.46l in their wake.
