Aust Bred Arcetri Pink Wins SAf Gr2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas
At Tuffontein in South Africa, 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when 3YO Australian-bred filly Arcetri Pink (Rock of Gibraltar-Arcetri, by Galileo) scored by 1.5-lengths for trainer Geoff Woodruff in the R500,000 Gr2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas (1600m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Not Sulking (Trippi-Dragoncharm, by Silver Hawk) & Athina (Fort Wood-The Heiress, by Rich Man's Gold). Arcetri Pink took her record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Pretty Polly Stakes) and 2 placings (including the Gr3 Magnolia Handicap) from 12 starts for R756,250 earnings. Arcetri Pink was purchased for $45,000 by Heritage Bloodstock at the 2012 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Millford Thoroughbreds and is the first foal of Arcetri, an unraced half-sister by Galileo to Gr2-winning sprinter Camena.
