First Winner for Yankee Rose

Mark Smith - Monday September 20

Top-class racemare Yankee Rose is off to a flyer as a broodmare with her two-year-old daughter Romneya making all the running in a 1600m Newcomers race at Nakayama on Sunday.

Given a positive ride from an inside barrier by Keita Tosaki, the daughter of Deep Impact held the challenge of the Lord Kanaloa colt Lord Cathedral by a neck as that pair draw five lengths clear of the third placed Duramente filly All Yours.

Trained by Sakae Kunieda, Romneya was a ¥226m ($A2,750,000) purchase by Makoto Kaneko from the Northern Farm draft at the 2019 JRHA Foal Sale.

Yankee Rose won four races in a career restricted to 10 starts that were highlighted by wins in the Group 1 ATC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) at two and the Group 1 Champion Stakes (2000m) in record time at three.

Trained by David Vandyke, the daughter of All American was also runner-up to Capitalist in the Group 1 Golden Slipper and was third to Winx in the second of the champion's four Cox Plates.

A $10,000 yearling that banked over $2million, Yankee Rose was purchased privately by Katsumi Yoshida at the conclusion of her carrer on the track.

Yankee Rose has a yearling filly by Duramente.

At this year’s JRHA Select Sale foal Sale, Masahiro Noda's Danox Co Ltd had the final say at ¥370m ($4,485,936) for Yankee Rose’s Lord Kanaloa colt.
