CHRISTIANO Rose has sent out the first signs to Gold Crown candidates with a brave win in the Harness Racing NSW Pace at the Gold Crown Paceway at Bathurst on Wednesday.

Bouncing off the arm over 1730m for the two-year-olds, Christiano Rose on the back of strong trials surged to the early lead challenged by Crunch Time and the pair made the running at a solid tempo.

Trainer-driver Rickie Alchin soon had his talented Crunch Time pushing quickly to the lead with Chrisitiano Rose in hot pursuit.

The sprint to the finish was enough for Christiano Rose to bravely get the lead and go on and win by five metres. Crunch Time stuck on gamely for secodn with Lord Heston finishing off well for third in a mile rate of 1.58.1 and the final quarter in 27.8 seconds.

Reinsman Mat Rue said he was pleased with the Alta Christiano – Miss Aqua Blue filly.

Zanadu produced a good front running exhibition in the three-year-old  again using good gate speed.

Driver Colin McDowel piloting a victory in 28 seconds last quarters.

"She’s going well and we’ll be looking at the NSW Oaks," he said.

Eccentric hit the line well seven metres from the winner, Whata Reactor filling the minor prize .

Rockin Marty rated a strong last quarter for Brad Hewitt in the other three-year-old pace making it back-to-back wins.

Meanwhile, Lettucefirestar and Life Lavros couldn’t be split in the Group 10 Rugby League Pace, sparking a dead heat.
