Listed Cranbourne Cup, Cranbourne

Race Summary:

Octabello (Pierro) prevailed in a thrilling finish to win the Listed TAB Cranbourne Cup.

The 4-year-old was given a great ride by Noel Callow and pushed himself to into the clear at the top of the straight to come with a late charge to defeat Sully (NZ) (Reliable Man {GB}) with odds-on favourite Furrion (GB) (Camelot {GB}) third.

The Mick Price-trained gelding has now won four of his 12 starts with this his first success at stakes level.

Pedigree notes:

Octabello was a $190,000 buy at the 2016 Premier Sale. He is out of Charlotte De Belle (Secret Savings {USA}), who is a full-sister to multiple Group 1 winner Dash for Cash.

Charlotte De Belle has also produced multiple winners Handsome Tycoon (Not A Single Doubt) and Municipality (Henny Hughes {USA}).

He is the third stakes-winner for Pierro this weekend joining Pierata who won the G3 Sydney S. and I Like it Easy, who was victorious in the Listed Reginald Allen Quality.
