Pierata All Class in Trial

Monday, 20th August 2018

Emerging star sprinter Pierata has tuned up for his next raceday appearance with an emphatic barrier trial win at Rosehill this morning. Pierata, who lowered the colours of Kementari when resuming with a decisive victory in the Gr2 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick two weeks ago, oozed class when scoring by 2.3 lengths untouched in his 895m heat in a time of 54.75 seconds. Trainer Greg Hickman is yet to lock in Pierata’s next target but has expressed a desire to run the impressive son of Pierro in the $13 million The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on 13 October. Pierata, who is yet to be picked up by one of the remaining two Everest slot-holders, is currently available at $11 with TAB for the world’s richest turf race. Click here to watch Pierata’s trial.
