Roseberry Topping (GB)

2019 bay filly by Mayson (GB) ex Our Poppet (Ire) (Warning (GB))

This is a powerful looking filly by the underrated stallion Mayson, the sire of Oxted who won last season’s Group 1 July Cup. Mayson was a winner of the July Cup himself, and is by a sire of speed sires in Invincible Spirit. The dam, Our Poppet, has produced some very classy horses, including the “Budapest Bullet” Overdose who won 15 races in Hungary, remaining unbeaten before travelling to the UK to run in Group 1 races here. She has also produced Majestic Mount and Poppet’s Treasure, who were Listed winning/placed horses respectively. The three year old half sister is our own Daisy Warwick, who was slow to come to hand but showed plenty of ability at home last season. Roseberry Topping looks more forward than Daisy was, and we have high hopes for them both this year.

Trainer

Andrew Balding

Andrew started his training career with a bang back in 2003 when Casual Look landed the Oaks. Globetrotting star Phoenix Reach followed soon afterwards and Andrew has never looked back, with Group 1 winners aplenty, most recently with Alcohol Free winning the Cheveley Park. His wife Anna-Lisa and himself are based at Kingsclere which is steeped in tradition. Indeed horses have been trained at this magnificent venue since the mid-nineteenth century, when it was occupied by the great John Porter. More recently, Mill Reef, one of the best horses of all time, was trained here by Andrew’s father Ian back in the early 1970’s.
