30th Stakes-Winner for Pierro
Golden Slipper winning sire Pierro passed a milestone on Saturday when siring his 30th stakes-winner when super consistent gelding Bonaparte (7g Pierro x Trafalgar Miss, by War Pass) landed the Listed Tatts Members Cup (1350m) at Doomben.
Trained by Stuart Kendrick, Bonaparte was a last start winner at the track and charged to the line to beat race favourite Snippy Fox by a long neck.
Bonaparte was originally a $360,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Bhima Thoroughbreds draft for Paul Moroney Bloodstock and did his initial racing in Victoria before being purchased by Kendrick through Inglis Digital in August 2020 for $50,000.
He has proven an outstanding investment for his new ownership group winning six races for them and over $200,000.
Bred by GSA Bloodstock, Bonaparte is the best of three winners from Trafalgar Miss, a placed half-sister by War Pass to Group I winner Sizzling.
Bonaparte is the first stakes-winner of the new season for Pierro, who stands at a fee of $99,000 this spring.
