The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 1 The BMW, which is due to run at Rosehill racecourse this Saturday April 7, 2012.
Americain has drawn the widest barrier of ten for the 2012 The BMW and will jump from gate 10.
The seven-year-old entire finished third in the Group 1 Australian Cup first-up and will be having his second autumn run in the 2012 The BMW.
New trainer David Hayes said he was happy with how Americain was progressing on his way to the 2012 The BMW.
‘I’m very happy with my big horse, who worked at Randwick yesterday morning,” Hayes said.
”He worked nicely under Brad Rawiller and he is going out to have a look at Rosehill on Tuesday.”
”He hasn’t missed a beat.
”I was frightened he’d be too dour for the Ranvet, so I decided to miss it.
“The Australian Cup run had a mile-and-a-half [2400m] written all over it.
“The last thing he needed was a mile-and-a-quarter [2000m] race to take the speed out of his legs.”
Hayes will then go on to the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday April 28, 2012.
”I’ll freshen him up after Saturday,” he said.
“He’ll have fresh legs for the Queen Elizabeth on the last day of the Randwick carnival.
“Often that race falls away. It’ll be nice to have a crack at it with a fresh horse.”
Manighar has drawn well in barrier six, while Drunken Sailor has the inside barrier of one for the 2012 The BMW.
