Pierata Eyeing Summer Bonus

Monday, 4th December 2017

Warwick Farm trainer Greg Hickman says the best is yet to come from Pierata after the exciting colt resumed with a dominant win in the Winning Rupert Plate (1200m) at Doomben on Saturday. Pierata (Pierro-November Flight, by Flying Spur) will now chase the Summer Crown series including the Listed Gold Edition Stakes on 16 December and the Gr3 Vo Rogue Plate at Doomben on 30 December, before the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast on 13 January. He will collect a $500,000 bonus if he can win three races in the five-race series. "He's not there yet but I think he's a very smart horse," Hickman said. "He trialled very well before coming up here and we were very confident." A $160,000 purchase by Hickman at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Kitchwin Hills, Pierata record now reads 2 wins from 5 starts for $128,650 in earnings.
