Freshman Sire Buratino Off the Mark at Hamilton

|

Tinochio | Racing Post

Darley stallion Buratino (Ire) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}), who operates out of Kildangan Stud at a fee of €5,000 (on Oct. 1 special live foal terms), registered an overdue first winner when Hambleton Racing 38's Tinochio (Ire) landed the spoils going five furlongs in Wednesday's British Stallion Studs EBF Novice S. at Hamilton. The MG1SP G2 Coventry S. victor had so nearly cut through on Tuesday, but Michael Mulvany trainee The Blue Panther (Ire) was denied in the final stride of a Navan maiden heat.

2nd-Hamilton, £6,400, Nov, 6-24, 2yo, 5f 7yT, :58.76, g/s.
TINOCHIO (IRE) (c, 2, Buratino {Ire}–Endless Peace {Ire}, by Russian Revival), who finished just under a length off the winner when a promising fourth in his June 10 debut tackling Pontefract's one-turn five furlongs last time, was sharply into stride and raced in a close-up second through halfway in this straight dash. Last off the bridle when easing to the fore soon after passing the quarter-mile marker, the 2-1 favourite was shaken up approaching the final furlong and lengthened clear under mild coaxing in the closing stages to score by an impressive three lengths from Burning Cash (Ire) (Strath Burn {GB}). The April-foaled chestnut becomes the sixth winner from as many runners produced by a half-sister to five black-type performers headed by G3 Sandown Sprint victor and G2 Norfolk S. runner-up Hoh Mike (Ire) (Intikhab). He is half to a yearling filly by The Last Lion (Ire) and hails from a family featuring four-time G1 Irish St Leger hero Vinnie Roe (Ire) (Definite Article {GB}) and fellow G1 Irish St Leger-winning sire M-Lolshan (Ire) (Levmoss {GB}). Sales history: €20,000 Wlg '18 GOFNOV; £35,000 Ylg '19 GOUKPR. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $5,575.
