Riodini settling into Sydney life

New Zealand  three-year-old Riodini (NZ) (Proisir) has joined the Sydney stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

The Group Three winner won four of his six starts for Pukekohe trainer Nigel Tiley and was placed in the Gr.1 Levin Classic (1600m) and Gr.2 Auckland Guineas (1600m).

The son of Proisir has joined Waterhouse and Bott with a view to targeting lucrative races in the spring, with the A$7.5 million Golden Eagle (1500m) a potential target.

“He has certainly mixed it with the best in New Zealand and looks to be a really exciting horse to come over,” Bott said.

“He is owned by Alan Galbraith, who we have trained for previously. He is a son of Proisir who Gai trained many years ago and now stands at Alan’s stud Rich Hill in New Zealand.

“We are really excited to get the opportunity to train this horse because it looks to be a particularly strong crop of three year olds to come out of New Zealand and we are very fortunate that Nigel Tiley has put plenty of foundation and conditioning on this horse before sending him over.

“He has arrived in fantastic shape and won’t take much work to be ready to be seen at the trials for us.

“What we have seen from that form I think he will be very competitive for us over the carnival.”
