Havana To Target $250,000 Gosford Guineas

Impressive last start Canterbury winner Havana will miss this weekend's Darby Munro Stakes at Rosehill and instead target the Listed $250,000 Gosford Guineas on Sunday April 6th. Heavy rain has fallen in Sydney all week ahead of the Rosehill meeting with the track currently a Heavy 8 and set to deteriorate further with more rain falling. 

Keen not to flatten the horse on an unsuitable surface, trainer Paul Messara won't risk the 3yo Stakes performer on a Heavy track with bigger targets such as Group 2 Royal Sovereign on the horizon for the now gelded son of Starcraft. 

 Havana returns to scale after dominant 4 length win at Canterbury on February 12 for Paul Messara & Nash Rawillar
