CONCRETE ROSE brings $1,950,000!
We are proud that CONCRETE ROSE got her start here at the Aiken Training Track with Cary Frommer
Concrete Rose is something special. All eyes have been on the daughter of successful young sire Twirling Candy since she won her career debut at Saratoga, and the attention has continued throughout her career while she succeeded at the highest level.
At two, Concrete Rose proved her talent with a 3-length triumph in Keeneland’s JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G2) in her second start. She opened her 3-year-old campaign with a win in the Florida Oaks (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs, and she would remain undefeated for the year winning every major stakes she entered in her division..
Concrete Rose’s outstanding performance on Kentucky Oaks Day in the Edgewood S. (G3), in which she defeated Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) winner Newspaperofrecord (IRE) by 3¾ lengths, cemented her status among the sport’s most talented 3-year-old fillies on turf. She polished her resumé even further in her next race when she scored a nearly 3-length victory in the $750,000 Belmont Oaks Invitational S. (G1) in a showcase of division standouts.
Her dominance continued in her next race at Saratoga, where she won the inaugural $750,000 Saratoga Oaks Invitational S. by 4¾ lengths. With the victory, the superstar captured two-thirds of the New York Racing Association’s new Turf Tiara series while recording her sixth win in seven starts and pushing her earnings past $1.2 million.
