At Doomben in Brisbane, Coolmore's Triple Crown-winning Champion 2YO and now rising sire-star Pierro (Lonhro-Miss Right Note, by Daylami) added a black-type success when rising 3YO star colt Pierata (Pierro-November Flight, by Flying Spur) swamped his rivals when winning by 2.5-lengths for trainer Greg Hickman in the $200,000 Gr3 Magic Millions Vo Rogue Plate (1350m) for 3YOs. Filling the placings were filly Dinnigan (Snitzel-Fashion Rocks, by Dehere) & fellow colt Goodfella (Snitzel-Movie, by Red Ransom). Pierata, who now looks a huge chance in the $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas, had put the writing on the wall in his previous run when runner-up in the Listed Gold Edition. If he proves successful next week, his connections would not only pocket the $1.2 million first prize, but also a $500,000 bonus for winning the Summer Crown. Pierata, who now has 3 wins & 2 placings from 7 starts for $276,650 earnings, was a $160,000 yearling at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale where he was consigned by Kitchwin Hills.
