PIERATA First Up Win At Doomben

Dec 03, 2017

Pierata (3c Pierro x November Flight, by Flying Spur) won convincingly at Doomben on Saturday when he powered clear to win the $100,000 Winning Rupert Plate by 3 lengths.

Pie settled, running third comfortably from gate one, in the straight he kicked clear of the early favourite Bring It Home Pop & Eisemann. His jockey Corey Brown gave him a lovely run and Pie did the rest. Corey committed & went to Brisbane to ride him and came home a winner.

Pie clocked a slick 1min 9.08 sec with an official sectional of 33.6 sec.

PIerata's good win was the first in a series of planned starts that will culminate in the $2m 3YO Gold Coast Magic Millions Guineas next month. He will be running in the Queensland summer series of bonus races in December which could also net an extra $500,000 bonus.

Pierata was Group 2 placed last prep and from only five starts & has nearly won prizemoney of $130,000. A great buy by his trainer, from the Magic Millions sales.

Most importantly Pierata is a colt with enormous potential and a wonderful attitude and temperament.

Congratulations to all his owners -  Mr R W Wilson, Mr R J Coleman, Mr W S Clegg, Dr G A Clegg, Mrs C E Clegg, Mr A A Gianesi, Mr A Merritt, Mr K B Ayton, Mr B R Turton, Mr M T Mathews, Mr C J Testa, Mr V Sikais, Steelies Racing, Mr T R Bonello, Mr J Zammit, Mr M Aurisch, Mr A P Carney &, Miss T A Powers
