Setinum Wins Listed Bendigo Guineas
At Bendigo in Melbourne, dual Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Holy Roman Emperor (Danehill-L'On Vite, by Secretariat) added a black-type success when 3YO gelding Setinum (Holy Roman Emperor-Uptown, by Success Express) scored a surprise 0.2-length win for trainer Shane Fliedner at odds of 20-1 in the $150,000 Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO geldings Eclair Choice (California Dane-Bounce, by Woodman) & Java (Medaglia d'Oro-Dawn Attack, by Fantastic Light). This was the first stakes victory for the locally trained Setinum who took his record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 5 starts for $117,975 earnings. Setinum was purchased by his trainer Shane Fliedner for just $17,000 at the 2013 Magic Millions Adelaide yearling Sale from the draft of Salamander Park.
