Italian superstar Dylan Mouth (4c Dylan Thomas-Cottonmouth, by Noverre) recorded his third career G1 success on Sunday when capturing the G1 Premio Roma in Rome.
Jockey Fabio Branca set a demanding pace aboard the son of Dylan Thomas, bred by Azienda Agricola Mariano, and led home a 1-2 for owner Felice Villa and trainer Stefano Botti when holding off Circus Couture.
“The trip was a bit short for Dylan Mouth, so we decided to lead and set a strong pace. Everything went according to plan and I was pleased with the result. Circus Couture had his ideal conditions – 2,000 metres on fast ground at Capannelle is just his cup of tea,” said Botti.
A delighted Villa added: “I have received some offers for Dylan Mouth and, if somebody pays the price I want, then that’s okay; if not, he will move to Marco Botti’s yard in the next ten days.”
