Portillo Last Start At Scone Prior To Stud
Trainer Peter Snowden confirmed multiple Gr2-winning 3YO filly Portillo (Red Ransom-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) will almost certainly contest her final race in tomorrow's Listed Inglis-Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) at Scone, before beginning her breeding career as a Darley broodmare. Portillo (an $850,000 yearling consigned by Tyreel Stud at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) is a half-sister to Gr1-winning sire Snowland; overall she boasts 3 wins (including March's Gr2 Surround Stakes over 1400m at Randwick, plus 2008's Gr2 Magic Night Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill & Listed Gimcrack Stakes over 1100m at Randwick) & 4 placings (including 2008's Gr1 Golden Slipper over 1200m at Rosehill, Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Flight Stakes over 1600m at Randwick & Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Randwick) from 16 starts for $667,175 earnings.
