At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Vinery Stud's 6-time Gr1-winning stallion Testa Rossa (Perugino-Bo Dapper, by Sir Dapper) added a Group race success when 6YO Australian-bred gelding Testashadow (Testa Rossa-Moonlight Shadow, by Flying Spur) toughed it out for a narrow win in the $150,000 Gr3 Festival Stakes (1500m) for 3YO+, defeating Mister Sea Wolf & Red Excitement. Testashadow, who was passed in for $55,000 at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Eliza Park, improved his record to 8 wins (including the Listed (R) Magic Millions Cup) and 11 placings from 37 starts for $1,320,585 in earnings. Trainer Gary Portelli said Testashadow would make his next appearance in the Gr2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 16 December.
