Pennacchio Wins Spear Chief Handicap

Monday, 7th June 2010

NZ Highview Stud's Australian-bred stallion Align (Night Shift-Super Trend, by Red Anchor) added a black-type success (& 6th individual stakes-winner) when 5YO mare Pennacchio (Align-Abenezra, by Rory's Jester) scored by a long-neck in the $75,000 Listed Spear Chief Handicap (1500m) at Eagle Farm. Pennacchio (ridden by Dwanye Dunn for trainer Andrew Scott) defeated 4YO mare La Etoile (Thorn Park-Desert Wine, by Deputy Governor) & 4YO gelding Rockdale (Danroad-Komplete Kaos, by Desert Sun). Pennacchio (a NZ$52,500 yearling at the 2006 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) now has 7 wins & 3 placings (including 2009's NZ Listed Postponed Classic over 1400m at Hawera) from 15 starts for $115,976 earnings.
