Union Rose, Stimulations first two-year-old winner is now the son of Choisir's first stakes performer.
Category: General

Entered in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot over five furlongs, Union Rose defied the odds of 100/1 and justified his trainer, Ron Harris's, confidence by beating all bar the colonial entry, Hootenanny, to a memorable three-and-a-half length second over the 24 runner field.

Union rose is a scopey bay colt, out of the Refuse to Bend mare Dot Hill, who had had five previous runs from his Chepstow yard and not been out of the first three in all bar his first outing at Bath in April.

It was this run that persuaded Harris that the big step in class was justified. Union Rose had taken a little time to grow into his impressive frame and this Chepstow outing had shown that the penny had dropped and put the icing on the cake as far as his trainer was concerned.

Following his first victory by seven lengths in a Maiden Auction Stakes he was entered in a Class four Novice Stakes and recorded a pleasing performance.


Harris hope that his new two-year-old stable star has many more rosey days and is looking forward to more stakes runs and hopefully victories from the 97 rated colt
