G3 success for Alpen Rose at Dresden
Alpen Rose gained a breakthrough G3 victory with a comfortable success in the Grosser Preis der Landeshauptstadt Dresden over seven furlongs at Dresden, Germany, on Saturday, 25 September.

Alpen Rose disputed the early pace with Dibujaba before being send on into a narrow advantage by Julien Guillochon. She increased her lead in the straight, staying on well to win by a length and a half.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “We are delighted to get a G3 win with Alpen Rose, who has been knocking on the door. This looked to be a race within her capabilities and she has duly delivered.”
