Solvini Wins NZ Lion Red Plate

Monday, 16th October 2006

Rich Hill Stud's Darley shuttler Bertolini (Danzig-Aquilegia, by Alydar) added a group success when 3YO daughter Solvini (Bertolini-Paris Sky, by Paris House) defeated her older rivals by 1.25-lengths in the NZ$70,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Lion Red Plate (1200m) at Arawa Park in Rotorua. Front-running Solvini (ridden by Vanessa Johnston for trainer Stephen McKee) defeated 6YO mare Hasta La Ciao Ciao (Unbridled's Song-Ester Kelly, by Famous Star) & 5YO gelding Manten (Encosta De Lago-Dazzling Belle, by Desert Sun). Solvini (a NZ$20,000 yearling at the 2005 NZB Select Sale at Karaka) now has 3 wins (also including last season's Gr3 Ford 2YO Classic) & 2 placings (including last season's Listed Fairview Ford Stakes) from 10 starts.
