Tiger Hill Adds Italian Black-Type
Triple Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Tiger Hill (Danehill-The Filly, by Appiani) added an Italian black-type success overnight when Irish-bred colt Figli Fanesi (Tiger Hill-Fanofadiga, by Alzao) scored a 3-lengths victory in the €61,600 (A$85,000) Listed Premio Botticelli (2100m) for 3YO colts & geldings at the Capannelle. Figli Fanesi (ridden by Mirco Demuro for trainer Vittorio Caruso) defeated UK-bred colt Bacchelli (Mujahid-Bugia, by Kendor) & fellow Irish-bred colt Plushenko (Nayef-Vertigine Bianca, by Sadler's Wells).
