Ortensia Nunthorpe Mission On Target
Australian-bred 7YO mare Ortensia (Testa Rossa-Aerate's Pick, by Picnicker) remains on target for Friday-week's Gr1 Nunthorpe Stakes (5 furlongs) at York in the UK. Subsequent to her recent 1.25-lengths win in the £100,000 Gr2 King George Stakes (5 furlongs) at Goodwood, trainer Paul Messara expressed his satisfaction at her progress. According to turftrax.com, Messara claimed, "She's in great form. She came through her last race really well and we were happy with her work this morning. Her conditions came right at Goodwood and she showed how good she is. The warmer weather has really helped her and I'm looking forward to running her at York."
