Testashadow Heads To The Listed Civic Stakes First Up

Jun 13, 2018

Testashadow is looking to add another Group win to his resume this campaign as the son of Testa Rossa will look to the Group 3 Civic Stakes first up this campaign!

Testashadow has had two trials to date, with his previous trial at Warwick Farm impressing trainer Gary Portelli.

Whilst 1350m is short of his best being a mile to 2000m, Testashadow has won over 1400m first up in previous preparations. As time has gone on, he had developed from a 1400m 'first up specialist', to a horse that needed a run or two before getting to the mile and 'hitting his straps'. However, Gary Portelli plans to have him as fit as possible fit going into his first up assignment, as he will have a 3rd and final trial before heading into the Civic Stakes.

"He has been working great", said Gary Portelli.

Testashadow was a $50,000 purchase for Elite Thoroughbreds at the Magic Millions. He has amassed almost $1.4 million in prizemoney thus far for his lucky owners!
