As 2010 winds to a close, Suave continues to climb in the first-crop sire rankings, thanks to several excellent recent performances by his offspring. The Darby Dan stallion is now ranked 17th among the nation's freshman sires also third in the repeat winners category.

Suave's latest winner came Dec. 11 at Fair Grounds in a six-furlong maiden special weight for 2-year-olds; it was Make It Roses who bested a full field of 12 juveniles by 1 1/4-lengths. The Louisiana bred was sixth after a quarter mile, then commenced his move to the front while three wide around the turn. He eventually got the lead inside the furlong marker with a very quick move and won going away in 1:13.61.

Make It Roses was bred by Allen Guillotte Jr. from the Easy Goer mare Makethemostofit. Owned and bred by Darby Dan's John Phillips, Makethemostofit won the April Run S. and was third in the Grade 3 Glens Falls at Saratoga while bankrolling $155,044 in her career. Makethemostofit is out of another top-class Darby Dan mare Love You By Heart, winner of five graded stakes and $612,630.

Make It Roses was making his second career start; he was a close fourth in his debut on Thanksgiving Day, also at Fair Grounds. He earned $22,200 for owner Jackie Barberito.
