Finiguerra Wins Port Adelaide Cup

Monday, 14th May 2012

Deceased triple Gr1-winning former Chatswood Stud stallion Niello (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) recorded his 1st stakes-winner when favoured 5YO gelding Finiguerra (Niello-Gold Choice, by Final Card) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Port Adelaide Cup (2500m) at Morphettville. Finiguerra (ridden by Dwayne Dunn for trainer Darryl Dodson) defeated top-weighted 6YO gelding Texan Warney (Gallo Di Ferro-Nene Valley, by Idealiste) & fellow 6YO gelding Rowland (Lonhro-Paris In The Fall, by Sadler's Wells). Finiguerra (a $35,000 yearling consigned by Mill Park Stud at the 2008 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) took his record to 6 wins & 6 placings (including March's Listed C.S.Hayes Stakes over 1600m at Morphettville) from 16 starts for $199,688 earnings.
