Victory for Victoire

14/6/10 - Bertolini three-year-old scoops big pot at York’s Timeform day

The highly progressive Bertolini gelding Victoire De Lyphar scored a valuable victory on the Knavesmire on Saturday when winning the Reg Griffin Memorial Trophy, a heritage handicap worth almost £65,000 to the winner.

Now three, the Monica Hackett-bred three-year-old hails from a well-credentialed family, his dam Victory Peak, by Shirley Heights, being a daughter of Prix de Diane winner Lypharita.

Now trained in Yorkshire by Dandy Nicholls, Victoire de Lyphar won on his second start at two last June when in the care of Patrick Haslam and was also placed twice last season. He is unbeaten so far in 2010, his York victory coming on the back of a game effort at Doncaster in April which he won by a length and a half. From eight runs, his earnings now stand at £79,816.

Hayley Cropper became Bertolini’s latest juvenile winner on 8 June, landing a Redcar six-furlong maiden by three lengths on her third outing. She too hails from the Dandy Nicholls stable and was bred by RJ and SA Carter from their Tragic Role mare Lavender Dancer, who is out of a half-sister to the great Bustino.

Meanwhile, the thoroughly admirable Memphis Man made his 101st racecourse outing a winning one when landing a six-furlong handicap at Nottingham on 10 June. The Bertolini seven-year-old won on his first start in the April of his two-year-old season and has now won ten races and finished in the first three on 26 occasions. He has raced consistently throughout his six seasons in training, winning at least one race every year. Quite an advert for the durability of the offspring of Bertolini, who ranks in fifth place of those stallions based in Britain in the overall sires’ table for the season.
