Talented mare Rondinella became Ocean Park’s ninth stakes performer with her gallant performance at Matamata today.

The mare is at best on top of the ground and did particularly well to finish a close second on a wet track in the Listed Kaimai Stakes.

The winner of four of her previous nine appearances, Rondinella closed relentlessly to be beaten only a nose.

Trained by Roger James and Robert Wellwood the four-year-old’s effort has her on target to chase higher honours.

The plan with the mare is to now head to Ellerslie for the Gr.1 Bonecrusher Stakes.
