In Italy, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a juvenile black-type success when unbeaten Irish-bred daughter Junia Tepzia (Rock Of Gibraltar-Marie Laurencin, by Peintre Celebre) scored a 3.25-lengths victory in the €50,400 (A$86,000) Listed Premio Coolmore (1500m) for 2YO fillies at San Siro in Milan. Junia Tepzia (ridden by Gabriele Bietolini for trainer Peter Schiergen) defeated German-bred Padana (Lando-Pariana, by Bering) & Paloma Varga (Orpen-Tindari Maria, by Great Palm).
