Scarlet Rose

Daughter of Silvano produces the goods

Cape trainer Joey Ramsden enjoyed a change of luck in the final feature event of the weekend with Anthony Delpech riding a powerful finish to secure top honours in the R150 000 Listed The Scarlet Lady at Scottsville on Sunday.

Gallica Rose wins Scarlet Lady

Gallica Rose finishes powerfully uunder Anthony Delpech

Former PE galloper Crackpot has settled in smartly to Ashburton and the daughter of Judpot led theh large field for home as Deputy Ryder moved to challenge her at the 400m.

With Bernard Fayd’herbe riding a powerful finish Deputy Ryder (another Go Deputy!) looked a winner inside the 250m. But Anthony Delpech had other ideas and he brought the 2015 Gr2 Gold Bracelet winner Gallica Rose up to challenge and in a desperate dash to the line, the latter got the verdict by a quarter length in a time of 104,92 secs.

Deputy Ryder had to overcome a wide draw and was not disgraced – ironically Fayd’herbe, who rode her here, had been aboard when Gallica Rose had won the Gold Bracelet.

Cape challenger Adorada caught the eye with a smart late dash into third, while the gallant Crackpot clung on to secure fourth after leading for a long way.

Gallica Rose is a R200 000 Cape Premier Yearling Sale Book 1 graduate, and has now won 6 races with 5 places from 20 starts.

She took her stake earnings to R672 675 and looks to have a bright SA Champions Season ahead of her.

She is daughter of Silvano, who was bred by Digteby Stud out of the five time winning Al Mufti mare, Al Jestic.
