Pierro 2YO Impresses on Debut
Primed for his debut with a recent barrier trial win, the Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt was sent out favourite and although made to work in the run showed his class over the concluding stages.
Under hands and heels riding from Kerrin McEvoy, Untamed surged clear to win the 1250m maiden by a length.
Autumn stakes goals are no doubt ahead for this talented colt, whose sire Pierro swept the 2YO Triple Crown in 2012 winning Golden Slipper, Sires Produce Stakes and Champagne Stakes.
A $450,000 Magic Millions purchase from the late Paul Whelan’s Luskin Park draft for China Horse Club/Newgate Bloodstock, Untamed runs for a big syndicate of investors that also includes his breeders.
He is the third winner from three foals to race from unraced Fastnet Rock mare She’s a Wildcat, a full sister to Group I winner and sire Foxwedge as well as stakes-winner She’s a Fox.
Currently the leading sire in Australia by earnings and stakes-winners, Pierro has 25 entries for Magic Millions 2020.
