Rogerson’s The Doomben Roses 2012 Queen

New Zealand horseman Graeme Rogerson will on Saturday seek successive wins in the 2012 The Roses at Doomben with his promising filly Dowager Queen looking to follow in the footsteps of her famous stablemate Scarlett Lady.

Twelve months ago Rogerson bought his star Savabeel filly Scarlett Lady down under for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival where she won The Roses on way to her maiden elite level success sin last year’s Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm.

This winter he’s back with another daughter of Savabeel, Dowager Queen set to run in Saturday’s $175,000 Group 3 The Roses (2000m).

A winner of four of her 22 starts to date Dowager Queen is also on way to the $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) on June 2.

Last season Dowager Queen accompanied Scarlett Lady to Queensland and had two runs when fourth to Hot Snitzel in the Group 2 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) and then fourth again this time to Benfica in the Group 1 TJ Smith (1600m).

She returned home and won a black type at Wanganui in September before travelling back across the Tasman for the spring riches.

She had two runs in Sydney, the best of which was her third to Streama in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m), and then headed to Melbourne.

She started three times and finished in the top three on all occasions, her Melbourne Spring Carnival campaign culminating with a second to four-time Group 1 winner Mosheen in her breakthrough Group 1 success in the Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington.

Dowager Queen has failed to really produce similar form since finishing fifth or worse in her next four starts.

She did however show a big of promise last time out when beaten just under two lengths to finish fourth to Putyourfaithinme over 2000m at Te Rapa on April 28.

Saturday sees her return to Oz for The Roses 2012, Dowager Queen rated a $17 chance in the latest markets.

Drawn in barrier seven, into five if the emergencies come out, Dowager Queen will be ridden by Glyn Schofield for the first time and her owner Max Whitby is hoping she will be competitive against the likes of NZ Oaks winner Miss Artistic ($4.80), Hollindale Stakes champ Scorpio Queen ($6) and BTC Cup Day winner Angel Of Mercy ($7).

Whitby will sell Dowager Queen at the end of the month through the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sales on the 29th but there is a chance he will retain a share in her if she produces something on the turf this season.

“Dowager Queen is a rising four-year-old and I’ve got her full sister Dowager Princess who is showing a lot of ability in New Zealand,” Whitby said.

“If I decide to travel her I’m also going to sell Dower at the sales and she’s in foal to O’Reilly.

“It’s unfortunate the sale is before the Queensland Oaks.

“If Dowager Queen wins The Roses I’ll endeavour to do a deal with whoever buys her so I can still have some of the action for the Oaks.

“If she sells for a low price I’ll definitely be trying to do a deal.”
