Monday, 21st June 2010

In Italy overnight, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 3YO filly Rockatella (Rock Of Gibraltar-Patrimony, by Cadeaux Genereux) scored a half-length victory over her older rivals in the €77,000 (A$112,000) Listed Premio Royal Mares (1600m) for fillies & mares at San Siro in Milan. Rockatella (ridden by Karoly Kerekes for trainer Werner Hefter) defeated UK-bred 4YO mare Sakheart (Sakhee-Tanwir, by Unfuwain) & fellow 4YO mare Gazzosa Alla Menta (Gold Sphinx-Gaby Palazzolo, by Classic Secret). At her previous start, Rockatella finished runner-up in Germany's Listed Preis Der BHF Bank (1800m) at Baden-Baden on June 1.
