New Stakes-Winner for Nicconi
A savvy $30,000 purchase for WA trainer Simon Miller from the 2021 Inglis Australian Weanling Sale, three year-old Nicconi filly Petula gained a valuable Black Type victory on Sunday at Bunbury when taking out the $125,000 Listed WA Breeders Classic (1208m).
Fourth in a Listed race at Ascot last November, Petula has been making steady progress and scored a long neck win taking her overall record to three wins from seven starts with prizemoney topping $165,000.
She stormed home from back in the field under a well-timed ride from Pat Carbery and there are more wins in store.
