Dr Gene Tsoi‘s home-bred 4YO mare gave her trainer Peter Moody some concern when she slipped and fell in her stall before the race, grazing a hind leg. However, she was passed fit to race and proved to be so with a powerful run from mid-field to finish a long neck second to the courageous topweight winner King Mufhasa.

All going well, the next chance for the 2011 NZ Filly of the Year to gain a Group 1 win will come in either the $3 million MVRC W.S. Cox Plate on 22 October, or the $500,000 VRC Myer Classic on 29 October.

King’s Rose is one of 20 Group 1 winners and 10 Classic winners by Redoute’s Choice, who has already accumulated more than $2 million prizemoney in the quest for his third Australian general sires’ championship.
