Littorio Wins Gr1 Turnbull Stakes
Lakewood Stud stallion Bellotto (Mr. Prospector-Shelf Talker, by Tatan) added a Gr1 success when 4YO gelding Littorio (Bellotto-Our Centasea, by Centaine) packed far too many guns in the $500,000 Gr1 Patinack Turnbull Stakes at Flemington. Ridden by Steven King for trainer Nigel Blackiston, Littorio swept passed favoured Weekend Hussler to finish strongly in front of rejuvenated 5YO gelding Master O'Reilly (O'Reilly-Without Remorse, by Bakharoff) & 6YO gelding Zipping (Danehill-Social Scene, by Grand Lodge). A $15,000 yearling consigned by Basinghall Farm at the 2006 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, Littorio has 2 wins & 7 placings from 14 starts for $918,475 earnings.
