A win by Zoustar in the Group 1 $1m De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on Saturday will put in-form jockey Jim Cassidy on ninety-nine Group 1 wins.

Cassidy is sitting on ninety-eight Group 1 wins and the chances of him breaking the century during the Spring Carnival is a huge possibility especially as he getting plenty of rides for the all-conquering  Chris Waller stable.

The Waller trained Zoustar ran a pleasing fourth at his first run back from a short spell behind Va Pensiero in the Group 3 $125,000  MTA NSW Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill on August 31 and the leading trainer is certain to have the three year old at his peak on Saturday.

Cassidy knows that the hundred Group 1 winners are not far away and gives Zoustar a great chance of getting him closer to the mark.

“I don’t know when it will happen, but it will,” Cassidy told AAP.

“I’m on Zoustar in the Golden Rose and hopefully he can get the job done this week.”

“I just concentrate on riding winners.”

Zoustar raced in Brisbane during the Winter Carnival and returned to Sydney with a win in the Group 2 $250,000 Al Basti Equiworld BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350) at Doomben and a second to Romantic Touch in the Group 1 $500,000 Patinack Farm J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm with Cassidy in the saddle on both occasions.

Cassidy has been riding in great form and chalked up another double at Randwick last Saturday on Aussies Love Sport for Gai Waterhouse in the Group 3 $125,000 Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m)  and on Hawkspur for Waller in the  Group 2 $175,000 Tattersall’s Club Chelmsford Stakes (1600m).

Hawkspur was Cassidy’s last Group 1 winner with the pair combining to win the $500,000 Channel Seven Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8 and the four year old is on target for another Group 1 win during the Spring.

Hawkspur is currently equal favourite with Super Cool at $10 for the Group 1 $2.65m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 19 and is rated a $14 chance in the Group 1 $6.2m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 5.

Zoustar is in the third line of betting for the Golden Rose at $7.50 behind Melbourne colts Prince Harada at $4 and Fast ‘N’ Rocking at $5.50.

    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your
    website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I
    get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, great site!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  13. bigger website

    I think that everything posted made a lot of sense.
    But, consider this, what if you added a little
    information? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however what if you added something
    that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Cassidy edging closer to 100 Group 1
    winners in Golden Rose – HorseRacing.com.au is
    a little boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch
    how they create article headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I truly love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you develop this amazing site yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m trying to create my own personal
    blog and would like to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called.

  15. Lélio Vieira Carneiro Junio

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all.

    However think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this
    blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Terrific blog!
