One To Watch - Sandown - Impressive New Fiorente Winner
Craig Tompson - Wednesday December 5
Fiorente's outstanding second season continued at Sandown on Wednesday with his tenth season winner, an impressive performance from a horse having just his second start.

Piemonte as a yearlingPiemonte had made his debut with a strong second at Mornington on November 19 over 1200m and with the race experience and an extra 200m he was clearly too good.

Trained by Robbie Griffiths, Piemonte had raced wide for most of the race and showed some inexperience getting a little erratic once he found the lead, so the future looks bright for the gelding.

By Fiorente out of Canny Lad mare Ellas, he is from a family with includes Street Cry, Shamardal and second season Invincible Spirit sire Territories.

He was bought by Griffiths, and Peter Ford Racing for $105,000 at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale from the draft Flinders Park Stud.

The signs are good for Fiorente as he heads into his second season with a maturity and distance obviously key.

He is standing this season at Sun Stud on a fee of $17,600 but has had the Book Full sign hoisted.

2019 yearlings aren't thick on the ground in catalogues released so far so his six entered at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale are sure to be popular. Click here to see them.
