Oaks Day Flemington Stakes-Winner Sold by Newgate

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Lightly raced Fastnet Rock filly Bleu Roche added considerable value to her worth with a fighting win in the Group III VRC Red Roses Stakes (1100m) at Flemington on Oaks day.

In a blanket finish with half a length covering the first six across the line, Tim Clark guided the Matt Laurie-trained Bleu Roche to a short-head win.

A close-up fourth in the Group III MVRC Red Anchor Stakes at Moonee Valley at her most recent start, Bleu Roche advances her record to two wins and a second from four starts with earnings of $149,750.

"She was probably a touch closer than she had been racing and it probably took her finish away slightly," Clark said.

"She got to the front and in the last 50m she was running on empty.

"She is a nice filly building a good record and Matt's done a great job with her."

Laurie said he was expecting a big run after Bleu Roche's latest effort.

"Her run the other day at Moonee Valley was enormous," Laurie said.

"I was a bit worried she had spent everything ten days ago but she's backed that up with a really great performance.

"A Group winning filly at her fourth start in her first prep, we've got a lot to look forward to."

A $230,000 purchase by her trainer out of the Newgate Farm draft at the 2017 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, Bleu Roche was bred by Love Racing and is the third foal of Esprit De Bleu (USA) an American stakes-winning half-sister by Littleexpectations to stakes winner Rockin The Blues.
