Tuesday, 2nd October 2012

On Friday in Melbourne, Darley's former Champion sire & World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a Gr2 success when the colt Pierro (Lonhro-Right Note, by Daylami) crushed his rivals to score by 4.75-lengths for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $220,000 Gr2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs at Moonee Valley, over fellow colts Carringbush Jack (Break the Vault-Fonteyn Star, by Langfuhr) & Jimando (Commands-Finko, by Caerleon). Pierro (a $230,000 yearling consigned by Musk Creek Farm at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 8 wins (including Sydney's 2YO Gr1 triple crown last season) from 8 starts for $3,154,950 earnings.
