Rossini rings up No. 1

Rossini rings up No. 1


Promising three-year-old Rossini, who was bred at Benstud Standardbreds by client Harvey Kaplan, posted his third win from six starts this season when he defeated older, more experienced rivals at Kilmore on Thursday night (May 23).


Starting from the No 6 gate, the gelding sped straight to the top and was never afterwards headed.


He rated 2:00.3 over 2180 metres.


Rossini is the first foal of Miss Fantastic NZ, a 1:58 Falcon Seelster mare.
