2012 The Run To The Rose Results – Pierro Wins

September 3rd, 2012

Pierro has won the Group 3 The Run To The Rose at Rosehill Racecourse last Saturday September 1, 2012.

The three-year-old colt proved too good for the competition, winning the 2012 The Run To The Rose field by almost one and a half lengths.

Pierro won the race ahead of Your Song, who placed second, and Epaulette, who finished in third.

All Too Hard, who was the second favourite to win the 2012 The Run To The Rose, failed to run on in the closing stages of the race and placed fifth of six runners.

Pierro proved that he has the ability to be one of the biggest spring victors after proving he was not only a top two-year-old.

The Golden Slipper Stakes winner won the triple crown of Sydney two-year-old racing earlier this year, winning the Group 1 Golden Slipper, Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes and Group 1 Champagne Stakes.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse admitted she had experienced some nerves prior to the race.

‘I was very nervous before the race, I didn’t want to bring him to the races until he was right.” Waterhouse said.

”He is just an outstanding, outstanding horse.”

Pierro has been targeted tworads the Group 1 Caulfiled Guineas and $3 million Cox Plate in October.

“He can go to Melbourne,” Waterhouse said.

“The guineas is the one we want and we will see how he is going after that but he is still in the Cox Plate.”

Pierro has now won all seven of his race runs and has earned more than $3.02 million in prize money.
