Trained by: Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young, Melbourne
A stunning filly by the hottest sire in Australasia. PIERRO was the winner of the Golden Slipper, but is leaving Group 1 winners at all distances and was Australia’s Champion first and second season sire. He has won the $2 Million ATC Derby with LEVENDI and has left exceptional Group 1 winners PINOT (VRC oaks), ARCADIA QUEEN, PIERATA (All Aged Stakes), SHADOW HERO and Hong Kong Derby and Classic Mile winner FURORE just to name a few.
Pierro left the Karaka sale topper at $900,000 and averaged $262,000 across the sale. This was his one filly we wanted and the one that both Trent and I marked down to buy after seeing her independently. She is out of a Commands mare that is a three-quarter sister to the multiple Group 1 winner SPORTS and the multiple stakes winner to Group 2 level and Group 1 placed SEIKA. This filly is a half-sister to four winners, including Ever Laugh who has won over $3 Million in Hong Kong.
Physically she is very athletic and walks like a dream. She obviously will have incredible residual value if she gains black type, but it is as a racehorse that we are excited about her. She is a great filly to start our relationship with Trent and Natalie and will race for minimum prizemoney of A$125,000 in Melbourne on a Saturday.
This is the one horse I told Albert to buy me. I wish I had a stable full of horses that look like her.
