Pergola Wins Sportingbet Night Cup
NZ Rich Hill Stud's multiple European Gr1-winning stallion Pentire (Be My Guest-Gull Nook, by Mill Reef) added a feature success when 6YO gelding Pergola (Pentire-Gondolin, by Zabeel) scored by a short neck in the $150,000 Sportingbet Night Cup (2500m) at Moonee Valley in Melbourne. Pergola (ridden by Dwayne Dunn for trainers Colin & Cindy Alderson) defeated favoured fellow 5YO gelding Olympic Win (Montjeu-Tennessee Moon, by Darshaan) & 6YO gelding Mr Tipsy (Montjeu-Fairy Tipsy, by Casual Lies). Pergola (a NZ$54,000 yearling consigned by JK Farm at the 2006 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale at Karaka) now has 5 wins & 4 placings from 22 starts for $203,243 earnings.
