A shared common experience is often a bonding one. When the Kolivos Family so generously shared their glorious ride with the great horse Pierro, an enduring friendship was formed. So it was with immense pride and pleasure that we could finally present them with Francesco’s first win for the stable. Ridden by Josh Parr, Francesco (Wanted/With Love) won the Schweppes Evening Star Handicap over 1550m at Canterbury on Friday Night 19thJanuary 2018. Jumping from barrier 4, Francesco settled just worse than mid-field. Approaching the turn he made his way towards the outside and got to the front with 150m to go. Holding off a late challenge by the Kris Lees trained Wahng Wah, scoring by a nostril.

Congratulations to our loyal friends Greg, Donna and Alexander, we can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to train their horses.
