Speedster Faustino left his rivals in his dust at Hollywoodbets Scottsville again, controlling the pace from the jump under Keratile Katjedi to secure his fifth career victory over 1000m, in a time of 56.22 seconds.
A recent winner of the World Sports Betting Dash over 400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville, the son of Gr1 sprint winner Crusade won by almost two lengths from Winter Flight, whilst his 8-time winning Toreador half brother Filippo finished further down field.
Bred by Piemonte Stud, dam Wishful Eye has been a star at stud to date with all four of her runners being multiple winners, and it will be exciting to see her beautiful daughter by Vercingetorix coming through the ranks; a graduate of the 2022 National Yearling Sale.
It was part of a treble for trainer Kom Naidoo on the day, including another #kznbred Candy For My Mommy for owner and breeder Mr Shaktie Bunwarie, a daughter of Noble Tune raised at Rathmor Stud.
Piemonte Stud have 12 two year olds on offer at the August 2YO Sale taking place at the TBA Complex on 26 & 27 August.
They include progeny by Erupt, New Predator, Flying The Flag who has had a slew of winners recently, Global View, a filly by Flower Alley (who is developing a reputation for producing good fillies), Captain Of All and the late Lancaster Bomber.
