New Stakes Winner For Cracksman In Milan

Cracksman | Amy Lanigan

Aloa (GB) (Cracksman {GB}) gave her Darley-based first-season sire his second stakes winner with a 1 3/4-length victory in Milan's Listed Premio Coolmore over 1500 metres on Saturday.

A debut winner locally in May, Aloa dropped to second in the Listed Premio Gino E Luciano Mantovani on June 25. Kept at 1400 metres, she won an allowance at Milan when she returned on Sept. 11 and was 9-2 in this step up in class and distance.

Glued to the fence while covered up through the early stages, the blaze-faced chestnut snuck up the inside on the bend and was poised to pounce 600 metres from home. She split rivals at the quarter-mile marker and wore down stretch leader Beirut (Ity) (Ectot {GB}) to win going away. Hey Honey (GB) (Adaay {GB}) launched a tardy bid to take third.

Picked up by Valfredo Valiani out of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 2 for 47,000gns, Aloa is a half-sister to the Italian stakes-placed Vento di Passioni (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and a weanling filly by Ghaiyyath (Ire). Her dam is a half-sister to G1 Irish 1000 Guineas and GI E. P. Taylor S. victress Just The Judge (Ire) (Lawman {Fr}), and two other stakes-placed runners. She is also kin to the group winner High Heeled (Ire) (High Chaparral {Ire}), who was third in the 2009 G1 Oaks.
