The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 3 The Run To The Rose at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse this Saturday September 1, 2012.
The final field has revealed another clash between star colts Pierro and All Too Hard in the race.
Pierro will attempt to continue on from his unbeaten two-year-old campaign by winning the 2012 The Run To The Rose this weekend.
The Lonhro colt won all six of his race starts last season, including the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.
Pierro has drawn barrier four for the 2012 The Run To The Rose and will be ridden by regular jockey Nash Rawiller.
All Too Hard will begin inside Pierro in gate two and will have jockey Dwayne Dunn aboard.
The three-year-old will be second-up in the 2012 The Run To The Rose after placing third in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes last start.
All Too Hard will go into the 2012 The Run To The Rose with three wins from five starts to his name, along with prize earnings of more than $430,000 in prize money.
The Casino Price colt will be looking to turn the tables in Pierro after finishing second to the Golden Slipper winner in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes during the autumn.
Just four other three-year-olds will line up to take on All Too Hard and Pierro in the 2012 The Run To The Rose.
Ashokan, Your Song, Ninth Legion, and Epaulette make up the remainder of the 2012 The Run To The Rose final field and barrier draw.
