Kiwi Filly Targets Singapore Juvenile Championship
Exciting New Zealand 2YO filly Mexican Rose (Volksraad-Down View, by Gone West) is being aimed at this month's S$200,000 Gr3 Juvenile Championship by trainer Laurie Laxon. A NZB Karaka Millions contestant (6th behind The Heckler) with 2 victories from 3 starts in New Zealand, Mexican Rose won her Singapore debut over the weekend by 0.5 lengths over 1200m in fast time. Mexican Rose was a NZ$85,000 yearling consigned by Chesterfields at the 2008 NZB Karaka Select Sale. Meanwhile her dam Down View is due to foal to Cambridge Stud shuttler & champion European 2YO colt One Cool Cat (Storm Cat-Tacha, by Mr Prospector).
