After impressing when clearing Maidens last time out, Pisco Sour stepped up with a tenacious victory in the 2YO & 3YO 1200m on Saturday at Hawera.
Carrying the Trelawney Stud colours of owners Brent & Cherry Taylor and Faith Taylor, Pisco Sour capped good form with an impressive six and three-quarter lengths victory in the Maiden 1200m on 20 April at Matamata, and warranted favouritism to win again.
Ridden by Lisa Allpress, Pisco Sour worked to lead and required resolve after being headed in the straight by The Stoney One to fight back and win.
From the family of Redoute’s Choice (Danehill), with third dam Monsoon Wedding a sister to the Champion Sire, Pisco Sour was offered as a yearling by New Zealand breeder James Chapman under the Jamieson Park banner at the 2020 Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
“We had to outlay quite a lot for her, but she’s a purchase for the farm for racing and breeding,” said Brent Taylor. “She’s got a lovely pedigree, being by I Am Invincible out of a very strong family.
“She’s a very nice filly that just looked like she would take time to mature and we hope that next season she can step right up to the best.
“She’s probably going to be a 1200m-1400m type, but might squeeze a mile, and a bit like Vamos Bebe and some of the other I Am Invincible mares that look like they’re going to be sprinter/milers.
Te Akau Principal David Ellis added: “we are so proud to train horses for Brent, Cherry and Faith Taylor of Trelawney Stud, one of the best farms in the business. They are great supporters of our stable and we could not be more delighted for them than to see this highly talented filly win back to back races. She is in for a big season ahead for sure.” -Te Akau Racing
