Piccolo Adds Irish Gr3

Monday, 28th May 2012

Former Eureka Stud shuttler Piccolo (Warning-Woodwind, by Whistling Wind) added an Irish group success when UK-bred 6YO gelding Tiddliwinks (Piccolo-Card Games, by First Trump) scored a half-length victory in the €62,500 (A$80,000) Gr3 Greenlands Stakes (6 furlongs) at The Curragh to improve on his runner-up in this same race last year. Tiddliwinks (ridden by Pat Smullen for trainer Kevin Ryan) defeated UK-bred 8YO gelding Jimmy Styles (Inchinor-Inya Lake, by Whittingham) & 4YO gelding The Reaper (Footstepsinthesand-Lady Gregory, by In The Wings). Tiddliwinks took his record to 8 wins (also including last start's Gr2 Duke Of York Stakes over 6 furlongs at York on May 16) & 4 placings (including 2011's Irish Gr3 Greenlands Stakes over 6 furlongs at The Curragh & UK Gr2 Duke Of York Stakes over 6 furlongs at York) from 29 starts for €196,530 (A$252,000) earnings.
