Rose Family Stable’s 3-year-old Florida homebred filly Joanie’s Catch obviously thrives on racing, most recently finishing a game second in the $100,000 Old Hat Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 9, and is back for more as she makes her 15th career start for trainer Barry Rose in Sunday’s $150,000 Forward Gal Stakes (G2).

A daughter of the family’s home stallion First Tour, Joanie’s Catch brings a bankroll of $286,000 into Sunday’s seven-furlong test, a total earned the hard way with four runner-up performances in stakes from her last five starts, punctuated by a third-place effort in the Delta Princess Stakes (G3) at Delta Downs in Louisiana on Dec. 4.

The familiar ‘Pink, Gray Yoke, Pink Cap’ colors of the Rose Family Stable are best remembered at Gulfstream with Mia’s Hope in the 1995 Bonnie Miss Stakes (G2) and Mia’s Hope’s son Hal’s Hope in the 2000 Florida Derby (G1). Both were trained by late family patriarch Harold Rose.
