Ten lengths victory for PEPELINA

13 Nov 2012

PEPELINA, the four year old daughter of VINNIE ROE, made a most promising debut in racing by winning the TBA Mares' Intermediate Open National Hunt Flat Race in Lingfield by mind-blowing 10 lengths.  Unable to find a suitable race due to the heavy ground earlier this year, the bay filly, trained by Paul Webber and ridden by Tom O’Brien, showed that the long wait was worthwhile when leaving the rest of the field far behind her in the last furlong.

She is a half-sister to PEPE SIMO, winner of 9 races including Novice's Hurdle (L) at Haydock, who also had started his racing career under the yellow and orange silks of Mette Campbell Andenaes.  There are more high-class N.H. horses in the fillies immediate family – VOL SOLITAIRE,
the Cheltenham 4YO hurdle (Gr.2) and Ayr Champion Novices chase (Gr.2) victor and
MELBO, the winner of Prix Gerald de Rochefort Hurdle (L) at Auteuil, to name just some of them.

Now PEPELINA is heading to the DBS Hennessy sales in Newbury on the 1st December.
