Slipper Third for Pierro Filly
Tara Madgwick - Sunday, 19 March 2017
Brave to the finish, talented Pierro filly Tulip ran the race of her life on the rain sodden track at Rosehill on Saturday to claim third in the $3,5 million Group I ATC Golden Slipper Stakes won by her sire in 2012.

PierroA last start winner of the Group III ATC Magic Night Stakes, the Hayes/ Dabernig trained filly tried hard throughout to finish third behind She Will reign and Frolic.

"It was a massive run," said her rider Kerrin McEvoy.

"We had no luck, wide the whole way. She started to move into it with good purpose on the corner, she was then pushed wide in the straight, but kept finding the ground. She probably didn't love the ground either."

With two wins and two placings from five starts including a fourth in the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes, Tulip has banked over $538,000 in prizemoney putting Pierro at the top of the Australian First Season Sires List by earnings.

He has 33 entries for the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale next month.
