Answer: I'd be curious to see how it performs. Black spot can be a terrible disease to try to control; some roses are more susceptible than others. Because you've pruned away practically all of the old wood (which could harbor the disease) you may have cured the rose! I'd wait and see. If it goes back to its old habits, you can always dig it up and be done with it. Hope it grows strong and healthy!
