Pierro Wins NSW Breeders Plate

Tuesday, 4th October 2011

Last season's Australian Champion Sire, former Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year & 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a juvenile black-type success (& 31st individual stakes-winner) when his colt Pierro (Lonhro-Miss Right Note, by Daylami) scored by a head on debut in the $100,000 Listed Thoroughbred Breeders NSW Plate (1000m) for 2YO colts & geldings at Randwick. Pierro (ridden by Nash Rawiller for trainer Gai Waterhouse) defeated the gelding Hidden Warrior (Hidden Dragon-Marcovette, by St Covet) & fellow colt Rusambo (Elusive Quality-Lobola, by Anabaa). Pierro (a $230,000 yearling consigned by Musk Creek Farm at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has a win in his initial start for $60,000 earnings.
