An announcement about the immediate racing future of one of Patinack Farm’s brightest stars overshadowed another comeback win for veteran mare New Beginning at Rosehill on Saturday.

As New Beginning returned to scale after winning the opening race, trainer John Thompson revealed go-ahead filly Nechita would run in the Group One Golden Rose in two weeks.

Nechita was a brilliant winner of the Group Three Silver Shadow Stakes at Warwick Farm last Saturday but Thompson said at the time a Golden Rose call would be made by owner Nathan Tinkler who also owns pre-post favourite All Too Hard.

“She’s great and runs two weeks from today (in the Golden Rose),” Thompson said on Saturday.

“I’m happy with that. She’s shown enough promise to have a go at that and I’m looking forward to it.”

Nechita’s jockey Christian Reith, who partnered New Beginning to a 1-3/4-length victory in the Spotless Handicap (1400m), was delighted to hear the news the filly would be heading to the Golden Rose on September 15.

“Is that right? Bring it on,” Reith said.

While the Group One target has been set for Nechita, Thompson is unsure where he’ll head next with the Les Tinkler-owned New Beginning but hopes to find a suitable stakes race during the spring carnival.

Six-year-old New Beginning claimed her second win from three starts this preparation as she came from worse than midfield to race away and defeat Westchester with Natch Catch in third.

“We’ll just poke along with her and with a bit of luck maybe through the carnival we might be able to sneak a bit of black type which would be great,” Thompson said.
