Rising Romance Progressing Well
Rising Romance (Ekraar-Post Romance, by Postponed) has pleased connections ahead of Saturday's Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Gr1-winning Kiwi mare, now trained by David Hayes and Tom Dabernig, caught the eye when resuming with a sixth placing in the Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield 12 days ago. "Her last 50 metres in the Memsie was very strong and we've had no problems with her since," stable representative Gary Fennessy said. "Stepping out at Flemington for the Makybe Diva this weekend will suit her and we haven't had to do a lot with her since the race and we've kept her doing 14s to the furlong." He added: "She's a very placid sort of mare that eats everything and does everything right so we are very happy with her."
