Fiorente Wins Gr2 Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes

Monday, 16th September 2013

At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, 7YO Irish-bred gelding Fiorente (Monsun-Desert Bloom, by Pilsudski) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $300,000 Gr2 Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+, over 7YO gelding Spacecraft (Galileo-Demanding, by Octagonal) & French-bred 5YO entire Lidari (Acclamation-Laxlova, Linamix). This was a well-deserved victory for the highly consistent but luckless Fiorente and took his record to 3 wins (also including the Gr2 Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket in the UK) & 5 placings (including the Gr1 All Aged Stakes at Randwick, Gr1 Melbourne Cup, Gr3 Gordon Stakes at Goodwood & Gr2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot) from 13 starts.
