Military Rose Sale To Go Ahead Despite Guineas Win

Despite the brilliant win from Military Rose in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas yesterday, her connections still plan to sell the talented three-year-old in the Broodmare Sales next month.

Military Rose is sure to have added to her value and elevated her breeding prospects with a half a length win ahead of Celtic Dancer and Skating On Ice in the $125,000 Guineas.

Trainer Gillian Heinrich was elated with Military Rose’s win.

“I’m absolutely rapt,” Heinrich said.

“She is back!”

“I was a little bit worried about four weeks ago when she started down there in Sydney.

“But I think she is the sort of filly, that if you let her lead she is comfortable and she doesn’t fight and doesn’t choke down.

“Everything works out better for her (when she leads) and obviously Dan rode her like that today and she’s back.”

Military Rose was in Sydney for the autumn carnival but came back to Brisbane after a rainy season that saw her scratched from most of the races that she entered.

“We stayed in Sydney ticking her over for about six weeks and it just rained and rained,” Heinrich said.

“We put her in everything and just kept scratching and scratching.”

“Eventually we brought her home for this race.

“This morning they said (the track was) a slow 6 and I just hoped it would pick up by this afternoon.”

Despite Military Rose demonstrating she is back in her best form, her owners are still going ahead with plans to sell the three-year-old.

“She’s done enough for us and she’s my favourite horse but she’s also a very valuable mare,” Heinrich said.

“She will have another couple of runs before we sale her but there’s not much around for her and she struggles past 1200 metres.”

“She’s going to sales in June for a broodmare. There are those 1350s coming up, but if she can get the 1350, that’s another thing.

“We’ll just have to see after today and have a think about what we’re going to do with her,” Heinrich added.

Military Rose has won six of her eleven race starts and has accumulated prize earnings that top $1.6 million.
