Pierro Colt Goes Two From Two
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 13 September 2017
Exciting Pierro colt Levendi turned heads with his resounding debut win at Ballarat in June and reappeared at Mornington on Wednesday to post another dominant win.

Levendi as a yearlingThe Peter Gelagotis trained colt was sent out favourite for the Benchmark 64 event over 1200 metres and delivered an impressive win on the heavy ground.

He settled back in the field for Ben Melham and accelerated to the line to win with authority by nearly two lengths.

Levendi is entered for the Group I MRC Caulfield Guineas, a race in which his sire finished second in 2012 and his grand-sire Lonhro won in 2001.

A $140,000 Magic Millions purchase for Manny Gelagotis from the Widden Stud draft, Levendi was bred by long time Widden client Robert Anderson and is the second winner for stakes-placed Redoute's Choice mare Lipari, a daughter of Group I winner Tully Thunder.

Pierro's top class daughter Tulip returns to Sydney this weekend where she is an acceptor for the Group II ATC Tea Rose Stakes.
