Littorio Wins Gr1 The BMW

Tuesday, 6th April 2010

Lakewood Stud stallion Bellotto (Mr. Prospector-Shelf Talker, by Tatan) added a Gr1 triumph when 5YO gelding Littorio (Bellotto-Our Centasea, by Centaine) scored by a neck in the $2.5 million weight-for-age Gr1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill. Littorio (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer Nigel Blackiston) defeated 7YO entire Zavite (Zabeel-Miss Vita, by Alleged) & 8YO gelding No Wine No Song (Song Of Tara-Deep Time, by Kinjite). Littorio (a $15,000 yearling consigned by Basinghall Farm at the 2006 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale) took his record to 3 wins (also including 2008's Gr1 Patinack Farm Turnbull Stakes over 2000m at Flemington) & 7 placings (including 2008's Gr1 Underwood Stakes over 1800m at Caulfield, Gr1 Rosehill Guineas over 2000m at Rosehill, Gr2 Makybe Diva Stakes over 1600m at Flemington & Gr3 Randwick City Stakes over 2000m at Randwick, plus 2007's Gr1 Victoria Derby over 2500m at Flemington) from 23 starts for $2,323,425 earnings.
