The final runner for the Marc Quinn Yard will be Our Ruby Rose coming out in race six at 5:12 PM in a BM 60 handicap over 1200 m with the second up mare drawing an awkward gate (16) and at this stage is first emergency.

Our ruby Rose is a four-year-old Bay mare having raced on eight occasions for one win and two placings earning prize-money in excess of $14,000, she has been a traveller after competing in Melbourne, then ventured  to Rockhampton and raced at Port Macquarie under the guidance of Marc Quinn on November 14 finishing ninth of 12 over 1206 m when ridden by Allan Chau,  finishing 4.4 lengths off the race winner in a time of 1:12.86.

Our Ruby Rose then trialled at Taree on December 9 finishing six of seven over a thousand metres landing 7.1 lengths behind the heat winner in a time of 59.86 when ridden by Allan Chau on that occasion.

Marc has altered the gear for the mares outing by removing the Blinkers and adding a Crossover Noseband, Marc has also nominated her for Cessnock on Tuesday should she not gain a start.

The stable would like to wish connections of both these runners the best of luck at Port on Monday.
