Tulloch Lodge is keen to throw talented campaigner Dawn Passage in the deep end first-up in the Classique Legend Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill with an eye for chasing the state’s late spring millions.

Co-trainer Adrian Bott, who works alongside Gai Waterhouse, confirmed the stable’s intention to start the Group 3 winner in Saturday’s $1m sprint that will feature several The Everest contenders. It’s been six months since Dawn Passage was last sighted on raceday, finishing seventh in the Doncaster Prelude on April 3 at Randwick before being sent for a spell.The stable have given him two trials this month in preparation for his first-up assignment which included a strong win over 1030m at Randwick last week in a heat where Group 1 winners Private Eye and Hungry Heart both featured.

“His trial was awesome, he has come back really well, in great shape. He gave him a nice hit out and wanted to give him one at this stage of his preparation. There will be a few coming through the Everest so it will be a big ask for him first-up but it‘s more of a lead-up into races like The Hunter. We wanted to go through races like The Hunter, The Gong and potentially the Villiers." Bott said

Dawn Passage is rated a $26 chance with TAB for the Classique Legend Stakes where the market is dominated by Everest runners. Masked Crusader heads the betting at $3 while Eduardo and Lost and Running share the second line of betting at $6. Dawn Passage was one of two horses from the stable nominated for the Classique Legend Stakes with Everest runner Embracer also among the early contenders. But Bott confirmed Embracer is now enjoying a stint in the paddock after beating home one runner in the world’s richest race on turf.

The final field for the Classique Legend Stakes, which offers a $750,000 bonus to any horse that ran in The Everest who can win the race, will be declared on Wednesday morning
