15th Stakes-Winner for Pierro
Well known WA based owner breeders Bob and Sandra Peters have had a lot of success so far with Coolmore’s star young sire Pierro and it continued at Ascot on Saturday when Regal Power (3g Pierro x Broadway Belle, by Redoute's Choice) broke through for his first Black type win in the Listed WATC Lex Piper Stakes.
Stakes-placed three times previously, the Grant and Alana Williams trained galloper finally came home a winner, taking out the 1600 metre feature by a short head as a hot favourite.
He has the overall record of two wins and four placings from 10 starts with prizemoney over $117,000.
Regal Power is the third winner from stakes-winning Redoute’s Choice mare Broadway Belle and is a full brother to Group II WATC Derby winner Action, so longer trips should hold no fears for him.
He is also a brother-in-blood to the Peters homebreds Arcadia Queen, winner of the Group I WATC Kingston Town Classic and Arcadia Prince, winner of the Group III WATC Scahill Stakes.
Broadway Belle has been a regular visitor to Coolmore and has a yearling colt by Vancouver, a weanling filly by American Pharoah (USA) and is now back in foal to Pierro, who covered 228 mares last spring at a fee of $88,000.
Regal Power is the 15th stakes-winner for Pierro and is his sixth in Australia this season.
