First South African Winner for Pierro
Set to be crowned Champion Australian First Season Sire, Pierro broke new ground on Wednesday when siring his first winner in South Africa.
Prepared by Frank Robinson, two year-old colt Roy Had Enough (2c Pierro x Queens Plaza, by Elusive Quality) had been placed in three of his four previous runs and scored a well-deserved two length win over 1900 metres at Greyville as favourite, beating three year-olds.
Roy Had Enough was a $95,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Element Hill draft for World Wide Bloodstock and is the first winner for Queens Plaza, an unraced daughter of dual Group I winner and Australian Oaks queen Danendri.
Roy Had Enough is the seventh first crop winner for Champion 2YO and Golden Slipper winner Pierro, who stands this spring at a fee of $49,500.
