Perfect ten (22/06/09)

Bertolini’s winning spree continued with ten winners in the week between 13 and 20 June – and once again they were spread across the globe, this time in eight different countries.

A Sandown double was recorded in two hemispheres on Saturday, 13 June with four-year-old Brassini winning his fifth race at Sandown in the UK while three-year-old New Zealand-bred Trustus notched a third win at Sandown in Melbourne. Brassini was bred by Mr and Mrs Toye from Silver Spell (Aragon) and Trustus is a son of the Scenic mare Southdown.

The breeding partnership of Stanley Estate & Stud Co and Mount Coote Stud will have been thrilled by the efforts of Gwynedd (ex Bethesda by Distant Relative), who became Bertolini’s seventh two-year-old winner of the campaign with a second start win over five furlongs at Lingfield. Meanwhile, another three-year-old struck in the southern hemisphere when Realism (ex Excelsior by Happy Melody) recorded back-to-back wins at Awapuni.

The international flavour was maintained the following day with winners in Italy, Switzerland and Norway. Debbys Boy, who was bred by Robert Percival from the Petong mare Zilkha, shed his maiden tag with victory in the Prix des Peupliers at the Swiss track Avenches while sprinter Rio Ther, a six-year-old entire from his sire’s first crop recorded his seventh victory at Livorno in Italy over the five furlongs. The Claire Hollowood-bred filly Juvenlini took advantage of Ovrevoll’s speedy 900m event to gain her second win in Norway.

Memphis Man, a product of Richard and Tessa Watson’s successful Manor Farm Stud, is another of Bertolini’s first-crop sons who is clearly still very much in love with the game as advertised by his ninth career win at Windsor on 15 June. His busy career has also seen his placed on 21 occasions.

In Singapore, four-year-old gelding Financier (ex All About Money by One Pound Sterling) won a mile maiden at Kranji on 19 June. That same evening, Red Rosanna landed the five-furlong handicap on the first night of racing at Newmarket’s July course this year. The tough three-year-old, who is a daughter of the Emarati mare Lamarita and was bred by J R Mitchell, had been second at Leicester the previous day and also won at Pontefract as a two-year-old.
