Twin B Joe Fresh Full-Force in Roses Are Red Victory

MILTON, June 15, 2024— Once Dexter Dunn got Twin B Joe Fresh rolling for the lead, her peers could mount no fight as she registered a geared-down 1:48 win in the $305,000 Roses Are Red final at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday.

Dunn floated Twin B Joe Fresh out of post 4 into fourth and sat unhurried through a :26.2 first quarter cut by Tells On A Roll. But as Silver Label popped pocket and Always B Naughty followed overland out of third, Dunn tipped Twin B Joe Fresh into the flow up the backside and exited the shuffle on the point after a :54.2 half.

Twin B Joe Fresh stayed on the throttle through the final turn under no encouragement from Dunn and clicked by three-quarters in 1:21.2 before lifting flight for home. Opening several lengths in the sprint for the finish, Dunn coasted to the line in parallel with the ground keeping Twin B Joe Fresh under a grip to a 1-1/4-length win. Sylvia Hanover surged from a first-over trip in the back half to take second with Always B Naughty settling for third and Tells On A Roll taking fourth.

“She’s such an easy mare to drive, so we just got away in a good spot,” Dexter Dunn said after the race. “Once Sylvia [Hanover] got on my back I thought to follow Louis [Roy and Always B Naughty] to the front; I didn’t want to give Sylvia a tow up. She just felt great. She cruised down the lane pretty strong tonight.”

“The horse does the talking,” trainer Chris Ryder said. “She’s just a powerhouse, she’s got natural speed and she can carry it. I’m just lucky to have her. I came across her and got her, and all the credit goes to her. She’s just got the goods.”

A 4-year-old daughter of Roll With Joe, Twin B Joe Fresh has now won three races from four starts this season and 22 races from 31 starts in her career, banking $1,698,923 for owners Chris Ryder, Dexter Dunn, Peter Trebotica and Barry Spak. She paid $3.10 to win.
