Picolo Adds UK Gr2

Friday, 13th July 2007

Eureka Stud shuttler Piccolo (Warning-Woodwind, by Whistling Wind) added a UK juvenile group success at Newmarket overnight when undefeated colt Winker Watson (Piccolo-Bonica, by Rousillon) overcame a slow start & came from last-to-first in the straight to snatch victory by a short-head in the £70,000 (A$168,000) Gr2 July Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YO colts & geldings. Winker Watson (ridden by Jimmy Fortune for trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam) defeated fellow colts River Proud (Proud Citizen-Da River Hoss, by River Special) & Swiss Franc (Mr Greeley-Swiss Lake, by Indian Ridge). Winker Watson was a 56,000 guineas (A$146,000) yearling at the Doncaster St Leger Sale & also won last month's Gr2 Norfolk Stakes (5 furlongs) at Royal Ascot. He now boasts 3 wins from 3 starts.
