Peltzer will be on a mission to prove he is not Sydney's version of Chief De Beers

Peltzer will be on a mission to prove he is not Sydney’s version of Chief De Beers when he sets out to break his Rosehill hoodoo in the Hobartville Stakes.

The burgeoning talent has won six of his nine starts, five of his victories coming at Randwick and one – his maiden – at Kembla Grange.

His three defeats have all been handed down at Rosehill, a record trainers Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou hope he can rectify on Saturday.

His home track jinx recalls memories of grand Queensland campaigner Chief De Beers, whose 20 career wins were all posted at Doomben during the mid-1990s.

Twelve of his victories were at stakes level, including a pair of Group Ones, but he could not win at any other venue, pointedly in eight starts at his home circuit of Eagle Farm.

Ryan remembers Chief De Beers well and says he isn’t the only horse to have an aversion to its local racetrack.

“I had a horse at the Gold Coast and then down here called Striking Victory and he won at Randwick, Canterbury, Gosford, Kembla, Toowoomba, Doomben,” Ryan said.

“He had 11 starts at Rosehill and ran two placings.”

While Peltzer has so far gone winless at Rosehill, his efforts at his home track have had merit.

He was second to runaway winner Anders in the San Domenico, fourth to Rothfire in the Run To The Rose and fifth to Ole Kirk in the Group One Golden Rose.

“He ran here in an 1100 metre race, a 1200 metre race and a Golden Rose and he ran second, fourth and fifth so they haven’t been bad runs and they were in good company too,” Ryan said.

Ryan has had several top colts during his training career, including outstanding stallion Snitzel, Trapeze Artist and Menari.

Peltzer is shaping as his latest and Ryan says all the good colts share two important attributes, neither of which can be taught.

“Attitude and ability,” Ryan said.

“The attitudes are born in them.”

A first up winner of the Eskimo Prince Stakes when he stalked the speed, Peltzer ($4.20) is being shaded for 2021 Hobartville Stakes favouritism by New Zealand raider Aegon, who heads TAB fixed odds markets at $3.90.

Hawkes Racing will be represented by North Pacific after deciding to take Ole Kirk to Melbourne for the Futurity Stakes and the Golden Rose runner-up is on the third line of Hobartville betting at $4.60.
