Connections of this season’s batch of three-year-olds are clamouring for a berth in The Everest after Yes Yes Yes showed last year the yougsters are capable of winning the lucrative sprint.

But before The Everest, this month’s Golden Rose is shaping as the strongest edition of the race.

Last year’s three-year-old crop was considered one for the ages, but the next wave of youngsters could be even more promising.

Here are 10 emerging stars destined for success this spring.

FARNAN

Colt

SuperCoach price: $225,000

Target races: The Everest (Round 3), Coolmore Stud Stakes (Round 5)

Gai Waterhouse declared the Golden Slipper winner won’t be beaten this campaign after the colt produced another scorching barrier trial. A slot in The Everest will be assured if he lives up to his trainer’s expectations in the Run To The Rose this Saturday.

ROTHFIRE

Gelding

SuperCoach price: $200,000

Target races: The Everest (Round 3), Coolmore Stud Stakes (Round 5)

The popular Queensland galloper is the only three-year-old confirmed for The Everest. He demolished his rivals in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins during the Brisbane winter carnival, which was his sixth win in seven starts.

ANDERS

Colt

SuperCoach price: $200,000

Target races: Manikato Stakes (Round 4), Coolmore Stud Stakes (Round 5)

Returned like a bullet with a five-length win in the Rosebud, then left his rivals gasping again in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes where he nearly broke the Rosehill 1100m track record. That sheer speed will make him hard to beat when he takes on the older horses in the Group 1 Moir Stakes over 1000m at the Valley. But can he stretch his brilliance out to 1200m?

NORTH PACIFIC

Colt

SuperCoach price: $200,000

Target races: Caulfield Guineas (Round 2), Cox Plate (Round 4)

Shot into Golden Rose calculations after a commanding five-length romp on the Up And Coming Stakes. He’s clearly improved since Farnan beat him on debut by more than four lengths. The Caulfield Guineas and Cox Plate will be on his radar if he can measure up in the Golden Rose.

MAMARAGAN

Colt

SuperCoach price: $225,000

Target races: The Everest (Round 3)

Finished third in the Golden Slipper at just his second start before a luckless placing in the Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes. He was no match for speedy Anders first-up but will benefit from that run. Another colt being set for the Golden Rose. The Caulfield Guineas at 1600m looks ideal for him but trainer John Thompson is eager for an Everest spot.

HUNGRY HEART

Filly

SuperCoach price: $200,000

Target races: Flight Stakes (Round 1)

Will attempt to emulate stablemate Funstar by winning the Group 1 Flight Stakes. A fast-finishing second to Dame Giselle in the Furious Stakes last week shows she’s on track.

INSTANT CELEBRITY

Filly

SuperCoach price: $150,000

Target races: Thousand Guineas (Round 2)

The South Australian filly was unbeaten as a two-year-old, making a huge impression when winning the 1400m Oaklands Plate from near last. Her spring campaign begins this Saturday at Morphettville.

KISUKANO

Filly

SuperCoach price: $200,000

Target races: Flight Stakes (Round 1)

She’s the only horse to have defeated Rothfire, and the Toowoomba filly’s three wins this campaign have exuded class. She won’t be out of her depth against the Sydney fillies.

NIGHT RAID

Filly

SuperCoach price: $100,000

Target races: Thousand Guineas (Round 2)

Successfully stepped up to city company in last week’s Atlantic Jewel Stakes following a dominant Tatura maiden win. A repeat in the Thousand Guineas Prelude will send her into outright favourite for the main race.

FLYING AWARD

Colt

SuperCoach price: $175,000

Target races: Caulfield Guineas (Round 2)

There’s a bit of hype about him and there’s plenty of upside for the early Caulfield Guineas second after his eye-catching second in the McNeil Stakes.
