Lot 135 - Pierro/Montana Sunset '17

By our very own 2YO Triple Crown winner, out of the Stakes placed More Than Ready mare, Montana Sunset

This colt is by our very own unbeaten Triple Crown winner at two and dual Group 1 winner at three, Pierro. Champion First and Second Season Sire, Pierro has done a phenomenal job at stud so far. He is the sire of 16 individual stakes winners, three of which are Group 1 winners including our VRC Oaks winner Pinot and most recently our two-year-old Group 3 winning colt Bellevue Hill. With stakes winners over all distances ranging from 1000 metres to 2400 metres and as two, three and four-year-olds Pierro is proving to be a truly versatile sire.

This colt is out of the stakes placed More Than Ready mare Montana Sunset. This is a family that Gai knows particularly well, having trained this colt's dam as well her half-sister Montana Flyer. Montana Sunset was a very precocious two-year-old winning three times and placing in the Group 2 Light Finger Stakes. Her half-sister Montana Flyer was a fabulous racehorse for Gai, winning the Group 2 Roman Consul as a two-year-old and placing in two stakes races. As a three-year-old she added another Group victory to her resume and placed in another two Group races and then came back as a four-year-old to win another Group 3. From a very talented family of juvenile stakes horses this colt has the physique to be just that.
