Rock Of Gibraltar Adds Italian Black-Type

Monday, 31st May 2010

European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added an Italian black-type success overnight when UK-bred 4YO entire Brusco (Rock Of Gibraltar-Blaze Of Colour, by Rainbow Quest) scored a 0.75-length in the €61,600 (A$92,000) Listed Coppa D'Oro (3000m) at San Siro. Bruscio (ridden by Eduardo Pedroza for trainer Andreas Wohler) defeated German-bred 6YO gelding Earlsalsa (Kingsalsa-Earthly Paradise, by Dashing Blade) & Irish-bred 4YO entire Mariydi (Kalanisi-Mariyba, by Be My Guest). Last year Brusco finished runner-up in Germany's Listed Derby Trial (2100m) at Bremen.
