Verossi Wins Roberts Stakes

Monday, 10th March 2008

Former West Australian Alwyn Park Stud shuttler Verglas (Highest Honor-Rahaam, by Secreto) added a black-type success when gelded son Verossi (Verglas-Virtuose, by Palace Music) gained the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $75,000 Listed J.C.Roberts Stakes (1800m) for 3YOs at Ascot in Perth. Verossi (ridden by Paul King for trainer Warren Radford) scored by a short-halfhead from the colt Famous Roman (Danetime-Famous Friend, by Marooned) with a further head to favoured fellow gelding  Yuro (Fusaichi Pegasus-Hot Spice, by Old Spice). Verossi (a $32,500 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) now has 3 wins & 3 placings (including last month's Listed Challenge Stakes over 1400m at Ascot) from 7 starts for $109,050 earnings.
