Great Goin Rose tries to stay unbeaten


Great Goin Rose will try to keep her undefeated streak alive when she faces 13 other Ohio-bred 3-year-old fillies in the $50,000 Royal North at Beulah Park. The six-furlong Royal North is the first of three stakes in the final month of the winter-spring meet.

Great Goin Rose is 2 for 2, with both her impressive wins locally. On Nov. 17, Great Goin Rose went wire to wire winning her debut against statebred maidens by 12 1/2 lengths. She came back Dec. 3 and won an open entry-level allowance race by 7 1/4 lengths.

The Royal North will be the first race off the layoff for Great Goin Rose, who signaled her readiness with a bullet work last Saturday. She will be ridden by leading jockey Edgar Paucar for trainer Donn Rowe.

Trainer Tim Hamm sends out a strong three-horse coupled entry. Heading the entry is Got Bling, who is the leading money earner in the field and has been campaigning at Gulfstream Park, where she finished second and fourth in allowance races.

Got Bling is a half-sister to three stakes winners, including Too Much Bling, and a full sister to Barnsy, winner of the $75,000 Queen City Oaks in 2004. Irwin Rosendo will ride Got Bling.

Hamm's other entrants are Eyeliner, winner of her only start Nov. 2 at Thistledown by 2 1/2 lengths, and Title Princess, a winner at River Downs last June by 9 1/4 lengths against open maidens. Title Princess also ran third in the $50,000 Tah Dah at River Downs.
