Cecconi Wins Blue Diamond Preview (C&G)
Coolmore sire Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a juvenile black-type success when favoured colt Cecconi (Encosta de Lago-Tonicity, by Blazing Sword) scored a 2.75-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) for 2YO colts & geldings at Caulfield. Cecconi (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer David Hayes) defeated the gelding Classic Brom (Delago Brom-A Class Act, by Brief Truce) & fellow colt Encosta Don (Encosta de Lago-Macedon Girl, by Rechabite). Cecconi (a $460,000 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 1 win from 2 starts for $65,000 earnings.
