Winning the world over 09/02/09

Whether through snow or excessive heat, a huge amount of racing has been disrupted around the world but this has not stopped the global march of Bertolini’s offspring.

On 1 February he sired winners in Spain and Italy, while six days later in New Zealand, his daughter Puttanesca, who started the year in fine style with a Group Two win on New Year’s Day, again posted a valiant effort, this time finishing third in the G2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic at Te Rapa.

Bertolini’s Spanish winner, Liniberto, was bred in Britain by Brick Kiln Stud and V.A. d’Haens from the Saddlers Hall mare Jasmine Breeze. This was the first win for the four-year-old who has finished runner-up on three occasions and is trained in Seville by up-and-coming young trainer Guillermo Arizkorreta, a former assistant to Luca Cumani.

‘He’s got a lot of ability but he was a little bit unlucky as a two-year-old,’ says Arizkorreta, who is planning to take Liniberto to race in France for his next start.

Doolin Dalton, also four and British-bred, was Bertolini’s winner the same day at Capannelle, where he was recording back-to-back wins after scoring at the Rome track on 3 January. The colt, bred by Snowdrop Stud Co Ltd, also won at Naples last August.

Mocha Java was another recent winner for his sire at Southwell on 29 January. A half-brother to last season’s juvenile G3 winner Percolator, the six-year-old has now won three and been placed on six occasions. Bertolini is the sire of 10 winners in Europe since the start of 2009.
