Group 2 Aims For Unbeaten Footstepsinthesand Colt

Elaire Noire (2c Footstepsinthesand - Miss Brazil, by Exceed And Excel) continued a standout season for his sire when extending his unbeaten record in the Listed Premio Vittoria Riva.

The colt took the seven and a half furlong contest by two lengths and will now be aimed at the Group 2 Gran Criterium, according to winning jockey Andrea Mezzatesta, who said, "He is a very good colt and has learned more with every start. I think his connections will head for the Gran Criterium and he could be a competitor.”

Trained by Raffaele Biondi for owner Luigi Roveda, Elaire Noire was bought by Marco Bozzi as a yearling for 38,000gns. He was bred by Old Carhue Stud and provides a timely update for his sister selling at the upcoming Goffs Sportsmans Sale.
