Bertoliver dashes to glory at Epsom

Derby day success for speedy son of Bertolini

The Investec-sponsored ‘Dash’ at Epsom on Derby day has to be one of the fastest five furlongs run anywhere in the world, with the runners charging downhill for much of the race before hitting the famous rise just before the post.

Bertolini six-year-old Bertoliver came within a whisker of the track record when scorching along the stands’ rail to grab the lead with two furlongs to run and holding off all challengers to win by a neck.

The Stuart Williams-trained gelding is yet another example of the durability and gameness of Bertolini’s stock. He has not missed a season’s racing since starting out as a two-year-old, during which campaign he won a Newmarket maiden over six furlongs.

Bertoliver has subsequently won in each season, yesterday’s victory being his sixth. He has also been placed eight times from 45 starts and has amassed earnings in excess of £100,000.

Bertoliver, whose full-brother Lucullus is also a winner, is out of the Pursuit Of Love mare Calcavella and was bred by Pillar To Post Racing.
