Roguish proves himself at Rosehill

Justin Webb has always known Roguish has ability but is thrilled to see him show it on the racetrack.

The 1500m handicap at Rosehill was the Tim Martin-trained gelding’s first Saturday metropolitan win.

It also represented a rare city victory for jockey Adam Hyeronimus.

Roguish skipped clear late in the straight and held off the challenge from Speed Hero by half a length.

“We always knew he had good ability but it’s good to see him show it on a racetrack,” part-owner Webb said.

Although Roguish was a bit keen out of the gates, Hyeronimus gave him the run of the race.

“He probably found the 1500 (metres) out there a little bit late. I don’t know whether he was just waiting for something else to come with him or he just couldn’t really run the 1500 out,” he said.

The Chris Waller-trained Chandana finished third by half a neck, followed by the Snowden-trained Level Eight.
