Gr1 Winner Guiseppina Retired To Pencarrow

Wednesday, 20th March 2013

Meanwhile, in NZ, another Gr1 winner in 6YO mare Guiseppina (Johar-Battocchi, by Success Express) has also been retired and will join Pencarrow Stud's quality broodmare band. Trained by Steven Ramsay and Julia Ritchie for owner-breeders Peter and Philip Vela, she won 6 races, including last year's Gr1 Telegraph Handicap at Trentham. Pencarrow manager Leon Casey commented: "She's retired sound and we're going to give her plenty of time to let down… She's a Gr1 winner under handicap conditions and placed at Gr1 level at weight-for-age so she's done a great job." Guiseppina descends from a quality family that features Gr1 NZ 2000 Guineas winner The Pooka (by Tobougg) and Gr1 WA Oaks-winning filly Trappings (by Grosvenor).
