Pinot Sold, Unlikely to Race in Oz


G1 VRC Oaks heroine Pinot (Aus) (Pierro {Aus}) has been sold, reported on Saturday. Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, the bay is now owned by a Northern Hemisphere-based owner and is unlikely to resume her racing career in Australia.

“The owners were approached and received a very good offer,” Bott told “Her breeding value going forward is huge. She’s an Oaks winner out of an Oaks winner. I can’t disclose the buyer or the purchase price. It’s unlikely she would race in Australia again.”

Bred by K Biggs Enterprises in West Australia and purchased for A$200,000 at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale on behalf of an ownership group that included Aron Wellman’s Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners as well as Newgate Farm among others, Pinot also won the G3 Ethereal S. last October. The daughter of G1 AJC Oaks victress Dizelle (Aus) (Zabeel {NZ}) sports a record of 6-3-2-0, $565,133. She is a half-sister to SW Dizlago (Aus) (Encosta de Lago {Aus}), MGSP Lucky Lago (Aus) (Encosta de Lago {Aus}) and SP Rock Giselle (Aus) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}).
