Lope De Vega's Alia's Rose Snags TDN Rising Star Tag At Chantilly


Lope De Vega | Ballylinch Stud


Jaber Abullah's Alia's Rose (Fr) (Lope De Vega {Ire}–Quanzhou {Fr}, by Dubawi {Ire}) was let go as a 33-5 chance for Sunday's Prix de la Butte Blanche, a maiden for unraced fillies, at Chantilly and returned to the winner's circle with a 'TDN Rising Star' tag after producing a breathtaking display from off the pace in the seven-furlong test. Racing at the tail of the field through halfway, she made smooth headway on the bridle out wide in the straight before quickening impressively for control approaching the final furlong and powering clear in style to easily outclass Karmina Bella (Fr) (Almanzor {Fr}) by six lengths.

Alia's Rose, half-sister to a yearling filly by Wootton Bassett (GB), is the sixth of seven foals and third scorer produced by Listed Grand Prix du Nord victrix Quanzhou (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}), herself a half-sister to G1 Prix du Cadran hero Mille Et Nille (GB) (Muhtathir {GB}) and G3 Prix de Conde third Capo Maximo (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}). The January-foaled bay's dual stakes-placed second dam Quezon Sun (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}) is the leading performer out of the stakes-winning Quezon City (Ger) (Law Society), who ran second in both G1 Deutschland-Preis and G2 Preis der Diana (German Oaks).
