ETOBICOKE, Ontario - One for Rose, last year's champion older filly or mare in Canada, beat the boys in the $136,700 .

Emile Ramsammy rode One for Rose, who tracked front-running Norfolk Knight through moderate fractions in the 1 1/16-mile event. One for Rose hit the front at the three-eighths pole and drew off in the stretch for a five-length win over favored Mark One.

Hydrogen was third in the seven-horse field, and Mobil was scratched. The final time was 1:44.34 seconds.

"She's definitely one of the best mares I've been on," said Ramsammy. "She plays hard every time."

One for Rose paid $6 and banked $82,050 for Tucci Stable and trainer Sid Attard.

* Chris's Bad Boy, Woodbine's six-furlong track record holder on the dirt, set the course record for 6 1/2 furlongs on the grass in Saturday's second race, covering the distance in 1:14.27 seconds. The previous record of 1:14.30 was established by Free Agent on Ice in 2000.
