Roseberry Topping (GB)

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

Roseberry Topping is a powerful filly by the underrated stallion Mayson, the sire of dual Group 1 winning sprinter Oxted. She has a very good pedigree on her dam’s side, being a half-sister to the “Budapest bullet” Overdose, and two black type horses in Majestic Mount and Poppet’s Treasure. Roseberry Topping’s trainer Andrew Balding has always thought plenty of our filly, and she ran a very promising race to be placed on her third start before being turned away for the winter. She grew and strengthened over the winter which showed on seasonal debut when she won easily at Wolverhampton in her first handicap. There should be more to come from this lovely filly!

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’s two memorable top-level wins in 2021 in the Coronation Stakes and the Sussex Stakes. These wins were the highlight of an outstanding season, which ended with Andrew finishing second in the trainers’ championship – a feat he will no doubt be trying to better this season! He and his wife Anna-Lisa are based at Kingsclere, a yard steeped in racing history with previous inhabitants including the great Mill Reef and Lochsong among many other champions.
