Juvenile hat-trick for Bertolini 31/07/09

Bertolini sired three new two-year-old winners in two days this week with his juveniles winning over five, six and seven furlongs at Musselburgh, Leicester and Goodwood.

Smart filly Water Biscuit had looked a decent prospect on her two previous outings, having twice finished runner-up, and she shed her maiden tag in resolute fashion at Goodwood on 30 July when racing over seven furlongs for the first time, winning by a length-and-a-half under Frankie Dettori. "She’s a lovely filly and she’ll go on to better things," said Patrick McEwan, assistant trainer to Brian Meehan. "She’s tough and that’s half the battle. She has a heart of gold and to come back after a hard race at Newmarket to do what she did there was fantastic. The extra furlong has really helped her - that’s what she wanted.

"She should definitely go places - I don’t know what the boss has in mind for her in the immediate future but she should pick up some black type."

Water Biscuit was bred by the Rt Hon Lord Rothschild and runs in the colours of Lady Rothschild. She is the second foal of Waterfall One, by Nashwan, and is the nine-year-old mare’s first winner. A day earlier there was a debut success for another filly, Waltz Around, who won a six-furlong maiden at Leicester for trainer Clive Brittain, representing a homebred success for Saif Ali. She is a half-sister to the Listed-placed Improvise, by former Overbury resident Lend A Hand. Living It Large, a colt out of the Almutawakel mare Dilag, stepped up from his second place on his racecourse debut in June to win a five-furlong maiden at Musselburgh on Thursday. He was bred by Sunny days Ltd and is seven-year-old Dilag’s first runner. Bertolini has now sired 12 juvenile winners this season.
