Stakes winner number seven for Rossini

Nijinsky Stakes (Listed), Leopardstown, 1m1f

ROSE HIP (6 m Rossini - Rose Tint by Salse)

Breeder: Ballyhane Stud in Ireland

ROSE Hip gained her first stakes win in good style on Thursday night when denying Shintoh Cat, a Giant's Causeway half-brother to War Chant and Ivan Denisovich, to win this Listed event by one-and-a-half lengths.

Rose Hip is one of seven stakes winners by the former Irish-based Rossini. The Group 2-winning son of Miswaki started his stud career at Ballyhane Stud and after his first crop of two-year-olds yielded the Group 3 winner Tournedos, was sold to Darley in late 2004, the same year that his three-parts brother Elusive Quality sired Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes hero Smarty Jones.

Rossini stood for two seasons at Darley at Jonabell in Kentucky at a fee of $10,000. However, when his later crops produced little of any note, he was transferred to Elite Thoroughbreds in Louisiana, where he now stands for $2,500.

A €10,000 yearling purchase by BBA Ireland, Rose Hip is the best of five foals and eight runners out of Rose Tint, an unplaced half-sister to useful Italian sprinter Prairie.

Rose Tint has a yearling colt by Martino Alonso.
