Cougar Roars


Del Mar Thoroughbred Club names Rosie Goldstein its Miss Del Mar Cougar contest winner Wednesday


Goldstein bested dozens of others to become Miss Del Mar Cougar 2009.

A San Diego woman named Miss Del Mar Cougar 2009 has plenty to say about her title and where she would like her newfound fame to take her.

Real-estate agent Rosie Goldstein got her crown Wednesday.

Goldstein said she was originally from the Bay Area but moved to San Diego about 20 years ago. Two friends who saw the contest mentioned in a local paper called her Sunday and told her she had to enter. By Monday she was front-runner, and the next day, a finalist.

“It was unbelievable,” Goldstein said about her experiences. “A whirlwind. We need to find a reality show - a cougar-based reality show.”
