First Dude Filly Wins Eclipse Award
Friday, January 25, 2019

    Conrad Farms’ Shamrock Rose, voted 2018’s Champion Female Sprinter, ended her 3-year-old campaign with four straight stakes wins, the last a victory in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint. The newly- turned 4-year-old daughter of Double Diamond Farm's First Dude was purchased for $120,000 out of the Best A Luck Farm LLC consignment at the 2017 OBS April Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat.

    Trained by Mark Casse, Shamrock Rose is now 10-5-2-1 with $917,687 in earnings. She’s the second OBS graduate to win the Filly and Mare Sprint and Eclipse Award, following in the footsteps of April Sale graduate Musical Romance, who accomplished the feat in 2011. First Dude was Florida's leading sire in 2018 with progeny earnings of nearly $5 million.
