Requinto Sires Juvenile Stakes Winner
Only Time (2c Requinto - Young Americans, by Nayef) became the latest Stakes winner by Requinto when taking the Listed Premio Giuseppe de Montel at San Siro on Sunday.
The Scuderia Effevi homebred won his second start in May and was last seen claiming runners-up honours in a conditions race earlier in the month. Racing on the outside, he was asked to quicken three furlongs from home and led entering the final furlong. Digging deep, he held off a challenge by Spirit Noir to win by a neck.
Trained by Alduino Botti, the colt was part of a Stakes double for connections, the other success coming courtesy of Chestnut Honey (No Nay Never). A half-brother to another winner by Holy Roman Emperor, Only Time is out of a half-sister to multiple Stakes winner Regarde Moi.
Requinto commands €4,000 this season.
