Wordless wins G3 for Rock

Blue-blooded Wordless (4f Rock Of Gibraltar-Holy Moon, by Hernando) brought more Group-race glory for Rock Of Gibraltar in Milan on Sunday.

The Stefano Botti-trained filly captured the G3 Premio Verziere Mem. Aldo Cirla at San Siro under Fabio Branca.

Wordless is a sibling to three sisters who won the G2 Oaks d’Italia - Final Score, Charity Line and Cherry Collect. She looks set to head next to the G1 Premio Lydia Tesio, which Charity Line and Final Score won while Cherry Collect finished second in the race.

Branca said of Wordless: “She is a lovely filly. This race was the target and it is great for her to win a Group race. She really deserved that.”

Bred by Razza del Velino, she races in the colours of Scuderia New Age.
