Niconero Wins Anniversary Vase

Monday, 3rd April 2006

Arrowfield Stud sire Danzero (Danehill-Confidentially, by Kaoru Star) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Niconero (Danzero-Nicola Lass) grabbed victory by a short-halfhead (& survived a protest) in the $100,000 Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m) at Caulfield in Melbourne. Top-weighted Niconero (ridden by Nash Rawiller for trainer David Hayes) defeated 6YO gelding Oamaru Storm (Royal Academy-Mamzelle Perdu, by Vite Cheval) & 5YO mare Strikeline (Desert Sun-Strike High, by Pre Emptive Strike). Niconero now has 8 wins (also including last year's Gr2 Waterford Crystal Mile over 1600m in October & Listed Aurie's Star Handicap over 1200m in August) & 2 placings (including the Gr3 Carlyon Cup over 1400m on February 25) in 20 starts for $497,680 earnings.
