Newgate Graduate with Group One Goal

Saturday, August 26, 2017


Champion sire Fastnet Rock featured with a very exciting winner at Moonee Valley on Saturday when three year-old filly Roomooz resumed to score a stylish victory over quality filly Tulip in an open fillies event that had all the hallmarks of a Black Type race without the actual Black Type.

"The formlines will be strong - that was a cracking fillies race," said trainer Tony McEvoy after Roomooz led around the home turn under Luke Currie then held off the late charge from Tulip to score by a nose.

"She got lost there when she was left in front and I think she did a super job to win," McEvoy said.

"We knew she was fresh and we had a plan - we didn't want to be back off the speed if it turned into a slowly run race."

Roomooz was racing for the first time since finishing unplaced in the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes and McEvoy said the daughter of Fastnet Rock will return to Moonee Valley for her next start.

"She'll come back here for the Atlantic Jewel Stakes and then the Guineas Prelude and then the Thousand Guineas," McEvoy said.

"I've always held her in high regard and I think what I was asking her to do in the autumn was a touch soon but when they have got as much ability as she has you press on if they are sound and well.

"I really felt she had improved tremendously and she's as good as any three-year-old I've got - certainly my best filly.

"In twelve months time she'll be better again."

Roomooz was a $480,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Newgate Farm for Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum and has won two of four starts earning $130,500.

Bred by SF Bloodstock and foaled and raised at Newgate Farm, Roomooz is the first foal of Group II winning Testa Rossa mare Pane in the Glass.

Newgate Farm sold a Pierro filly from Pane in the Glass for $300,000 at Inglis Easter this year and she has a filly by Deep Field to follow and was covered by Snitzel last year.
