The 2013 San Domenico Stakes was won by Va Pensiero at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse last Saturday August 17, 2013.

Va Pensiero won the race by 0.8 lengths ahead of Cluster, who finished second, and Windjammer, who passed the post in third placing.

The three-year-old was paying odds of $11 to win the 2013 San Domenico Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.

Va Pensiero has now won two of his six race starts and has earned more than $133,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Stratum colt is trained by Jason Coyle, who was at the track to witness his 2013 San Domenico Stakes win.

“A couple of times (in the past) he’s been a bit unlucky,” said Coyle.

“Today it all fell into place. He was strong to the line.

“He’s shown today he’s come back good.

“I genuinely think he’ll get 1,400 (metres).

“Hopefully in a few weeks we’ll be in a few of the bigger races.

“Spring’s here and hopefully we’re coming.”

The whole race was turned on its head when race favourite Whittington was scratched at the gates after casting his front legs on the stall.

“It probably changed the game plan a little bit with Whittington coming out,” jockey Tim Clark said.

“We weren’t going to be overly positive.

“But I thought it was probably my chance to give him a bit of a squeeze out the gates and it paid off.

“It was a good solid win.

“He’s got a good bit of improvement left.”
