Ortensia A Possibility For HK Campaign
Exciting 3YO filly Ortensia (Testa Rossa-Aerate's Pick, by Picnicker) is a chance to head to Hong Kong for a crack at the rich Hong Kong sprint, according to racenet.com.au. Ortensia is currently spelling and her trainer Tony Noonan said, "I had a look at her last week and she's doing beautifully. Her coat looks terrific and she's looking a picture at the moment." With a light spring campaign planned, Noonan declared: "I think if she keeps going the way she's going, she might be up to a trip to Hong Kong. Her acceleration off a fast pace would give her a chance in a race like the Hong Kong Sprint later in the year."
