Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor's Rose Gypsy rebounded from two second-place finishes earlier in the year to win the Dubai Poule d'Essai des Pouliches--French One Thousand Guineas (Fr-I) on Sunday at Longchamp. Rose Gypsy won by a head over Banks Hill, with Lethals Lady another head back and a half-length ahead of fourth-place Tempting Fate. Amonita was fifth in the 15-horse field.
Rose Gypsy stopped the timer after running the mile in 1:36.70 on the good turf course.
Rose Gypsy (Green Desert--Krisalya, by Kris) improved her career record to two wins from five starts with the win. The Aidan O'Brien trainee was ridden by Michael Kinane. She was bred in Great Britain by Hascombe and Valiant Studs.
