Aussie targets on cards
Steel Rose's career is back on track.
The talented John Wheeler-trained filly is in the early stages of fresh preparation after being sidelined by injury last spring.
Steel Rose won two of her six starts last season and was spelled following her only unplaced run when eighth in the Group I Diamond Stakes, at Ellerslie, last autumn.
A finalist in the two-year-old category of last season's national Horse of the Year awards, Steel Rose was on the verge of kicking off her three-year-old season, with a spring campaign in Melbourne on the cards before she went amiss.
It was later discovered the daughter of Guillotine had cracked a bone high up in her near hind leg.
"It was a stress fracture and the prognosis was that there was a 99 per cent chance of her racing again," Wheeler said yesterday. "The [cracked] bone wasn't displaced and she's 100 per cent again."
Steel Rose is in the early stages of her current preparation and so far has been restricted to conditioning work.
