Defend the Rose will break from post 7 under Alex Canchari.

The 3-year-old daughter of Graydar is trained by Bernell Rhone and has a record of 1-0-1 from four career starts with earnings of $26,044.

The filly finished third in a June 11 allowance race at Canterbury Park, sixth in an April 26 allowance optional claiming at Tampa Bay Downs, and scored a Sept. 13 maiden special weight back at Canterbury.
