Talented Canterbury mare Debnita Rose has been retired.
The Mach Three four-year-old heads to the broodmare barn after winning four races for trainer Cran Dalgety and driver Dexter Dunn.
Debnita Rose transformed herself from runaway renegade to handy middle-grade mare in her 27-start career.
The half-sister to good winners Chesterton and Glenburn Jewel, will be mated with a leading stallion in the spring.
