24.09.12. The Official 2yo Barrier Trials hosted some very well bred juveniles this morning, but none where more impressive than VA PENSIERO, who clocked the fastest heat of the morning on the Warwick Farm Course Proper. Running 50.02 seconds for the 850m journey under little pressure, VA PENSIERO will now head towards the Listed Breeders' Plate over 1000m at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day.
The stable has had success in this race previously with RUN FOR WILSON winning the event. VA PENSIERO is a lovely colt by STRATUM out of the very good race mare, ROSMARINO. She has recently foaled another colt by DENMAN.
