Soriano Visits Pins
5 October 2015
Denise Howell’s dual Gr.1 winning Savabeel mare Soriano could well have been trying to take a leaf out of her former stablemate Costume’s book, when she visited Pins this afternoon.
Last year after placing 12th in the Gr.1 Windsor Park Plate, the Gr.1 Savabeel mare Costume paid Pins a visit. It seemingly worked the oracle, as at her very next start, she won the Gr.1 Hawke’s Bay Spring Classic with her 2015 filly in-utero.
Soriano, who was awarded the Champion Middle Distance Horse in NZ in 2014/15 for trainers Graeme and Debbie Rogerson, ran below expectations in last weekend’s Gr.1 Livamol Classic, finishing 9th.
Whilst the decision is yet to be made as to Soriano’s immediate plans ahead, if she was to continue racing, at the top of Howell’s wishlist would be repeat victories in the Gr.1 Zabeel Classic and the Gr.1 Herbie Dyke Stakes.
