Support For Testa Rossa From Far And Wide
Courtesy of 14 individual 2YO winners in his first crop, and his position on top of the national 2nd Season Sire ladder, Yallambee Stud has received outstanding support for Testa Rossa (Perugino-Bo Dapper, by Sir Dapper). Among the mares booked into Testa Rossa this year are two from Western Australia. Owned by prominent breeder, Bob Peters, Gr1 winner Spectrum and Marrich Bay (dam of Gr1 winner Hardrada & last year's VRC Oaks-G1 placegetter Storm Alert) are being floated across the Nullabor for a date with the crack sprinter, with multiple Group winner Gwalia Girl also making the long trip. Mares are also visiting him from South Australia, Queensland & New South Wales, among them Sally Magic, who ran second to Testa Rossa in the Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast.
