Another Impressive Debut Winner for Pierro
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 13 July 2017
Fast tracking towards the title of Champion Australian First Season Sire with a flurry of smart recent winners, Pierro added another debut victor to his ever growing tally with a strong finishing win at Ballarat on Thursday for Poseidon’s Pool.

PierroA homebred for David Moodie’s Hesket Bloodstock, the Darren Weir trained gelding was well supported and surged to the line to beat the favourite Straviera by the best part of a length in the 1000 metre maiden.

"He had a difficult run through the race and has done well to win on debut. He’s a horse we have a nice opinion of,” said Jeremy Rogers, Racing Manager for Darren Weir.

Poseidon’s Pool is the first foal of Group III winning Exceed and Excel mare Kulgrinda and becomes the eighth winner for Pierro, who also sired Roy Had Enough to win in South Africa on Wednesday.

Golden Slipper winner Pierro stands at Coolmore this season at a fee of $49,500.
