Bidding on Te Akau Racing’s stakes performed sprinter Burgundy Rose (NZ) is set to close from 7pm (NZT) tonight, Friday 12 May, on Gavelhouse Plus.
Burgundy Rose performed up to stakes level, finishing second and beaten by a short neck in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1200m) in March of last year. She also finished fifth in the Group Three Stewards’ Stakes (1200m) and Listed Pegasus Stakes (1000m), and she ran sixth in the Listed Power Turf Sprint (1200m).
“She was a very good and super-consistent performer across five seasons, and she was unlucky not to win a black-type race,” Ellis said. “She’s a beautiful type of mare and will make a lovely addition to any broodmare band.”
At the time of posting she is yet to meet her reserve with a current bid of $31,000.
