Rosalita's Wish (Rosie) won another turf race, a $47,000 (actual value $62,870) Allowance, at Philadelphia Park on Tuesday. She ran the 1 mile 70 yards in 1:41.72 seconds under Kyle Frey. Don White trainer, owned by John Benson and Strait Up Stables, and bred by yours truly.
She is the gamest gal! I know I post about her often, but I feel I am so blessed to have bred such a wonderful filly out of my late mare Lyphard's Theatre (Juliet). Somehow this all helps in my grief over Juliet - a bit of her gallops on through Rosie. And, this all seems like a dream that I always wanted to have.
Rosie's next hopeful start is in September at PA's Day of Racing. I am so excited that she has made the grade for this important day.

The next stop for Rosie, if all goes well, is the $100,000 Mrs. Penny Stakes, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for PA-Bred fillies and mares. This will be on September 10, part of the Pennsylvania Day at the Races.
