Love is a Rose

Trainer: Michael Wigham


Sire: Churchill (IRE) – Dam: Parsnip (IRE)

Love is a Rose is a beautifully bred chestnut mare by the leading sire, Churchill, a champion 2-year-old colt in Europe and dual guineas winner at 3. From a speedy family and out of Parsnip, a 1st time debut winner and rated as high as 83.

She has only run twice and showed enough ability to be competitive once in handicaps. She was a 32,000 gns purchase as a yearling and was sold to break up a syndicate and has been purchased for a snip of the yearling price.

She has arrived at Michael Whigham’s Stables and John Wright took her under his wing a few months back. She will have her first race at the end of April where she will then gain a qualifying handicap mark.
