First Stakes Success for Cavalry Rose
Melbourne- An $85,000 purchase for Triple Crown Syndications from the Widden draft at the 2011 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, talented Charge Forward filly Cavalry Rose scored her first Black Type success when taking out the Group III MRC Thoroughbred Club Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
Making it a race to race winning double for astute trainer Gerald Ryan, who won the previous event with Snitzerland, Cavalry Rose improved sharply at her third run back from a spell for Nash Rawiller, driving forward to lead and defying all challengers to win the 1200 metre sprint by a short half head.
“She worked enormous at Rosehill on Monday morning, around this way of going. I was really confident going into the race,” Ryan said.
Cavalry Rose has the overall record of three wins and a second from eight starts with prizemoney in excess of $430,000.
Bred by Grant Briscoe, Cavalry Rose is the first winner for the winning Danske mare Alberton Rose (NZ), a half-sister to Group II winner Te Akau Rose from the family of stakes-winners Straussbridge, Sir Alberton and Alberton Star, the dam of Group III winner Lady Alberton and stakes-winner Alberton Park.
