Group Winner Riodini Joins Waterhouse/Bott Stable

Friday, 17th July 2020

New Zealand 3YO Riodini (Prosir-Giardini, by Perfectly Ready) has joined the Sydney stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, reports racingnews.co.nz. Winner of his first four starts in succession, including the 2019 Gr3 Bonecrusher Stakes at Ellerslie, Riodini then ran second in the Gr2 Auckland Guineas and third in the 2020 Gr1 Levin Classic. “He has certainly mixed it with the best in New Zealand and looks to be a really exciting horse to come over,” Bott said. “He is owned by Alan Galbraith, who we have trained for previously. He is a son of Proisir who Gai trained many years ago and who now stands at Alan’s stud Rich Hill in New Zealand. We are really excited to get the opportunity to train this horse because it looks to be a particularly strong crop of three year olds to come out of New Zealand and we are very fortunate that Nigel Tiley has put plenty of foundation and conditioning on this horse before sending him over.” He will be aimed at the A$7.5million Golden Eagle. “He has arrived in fantastic shape and won’t take much work to be ready to be seen at the trials for us. What we have seen from that form I think he will be very competitive for us over the carnival.”
