Rosewood Returns to Awapuni27 Jul 2018
Quality racemare Rosewood (Redwood) returns to Awapuni on Saturday – a track where she has had 5 starts for 2 wins and 3 seconds – in the $35,000 Fasttrack Insurance over 1200m. Rosewood meets a small, but select, field over the 1200m on Saturday with the likes of Dolcetto, Duffers Creek, and Darci Mac amongst her four rivals. Rosewood comes into the race with just 54kg on her back but the fact that her rivals will all use apprentice claims will make it a competitive race.
Rosewood has been in a purple patch of form this preparation with 3 wins and third from her five starts since the end of May, and the Marilyn Paewai trained mare will have plenty of support in the second at Awapuni.
Rosewood’s sire Redwood has had a fantastic flow of winners in recent weeks with the likes of Rising Red, Red Sierra, Suliman, Mighty Quinn, Soonbaby, The Heiress, General Sherman etc and there are a number of his talented runners such as Romancer, Night’s Watch, Tamarack, etc set to return to the track in the weeks ahead.« Back
