Pierro has won the 2013 Hobartville Stakes, which took place at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday March 2, 2013.
The three-year-old won the race by a nose in front of a gallant Rebel Dane, who finished second, and Proisir, who rounded out the placings in third.
Pierro has now won nine of his 11 race starts and has earned more than $3.67 million in prize money during his successful career.
Trained by Gai Waterhouse, the Lonhro colt appears on track for another successful autumn racing carnival campaign.
Waterhouse was thrilled with Pierro’s race win in the 2013 Hobartville Stakes.
“Pierro has the heart of a lion,” she said.
“He was vulnerable today being first-up at 1400m and on a heavy track but he showed once again what a special horse he is.”
It was the first time Pierro had run without blinkers during his entire career.
“He is such a lovely, relaxed colt but he is very genuine and he doesn’t need blinkers,” Waterhouse said.
“We can always go back to them if we have to but he showed today he doesn’t need them.”
Pierro was ridden by jockey Nash Rawiller in the 2013 Hobartville Stakes.
“I was worried because Pierro was out on his feet,” Rawiller said.
“With 50m to go I thought Rebel Dane was going to beat him but Pierro just kept finding that little extra only the really good horses can find under pressure.”
