Benzini has an international rating of 110, why is it that high?
It's always good when a WA horse does well in the Eastern States or abroad.

No need to get upset.

Benzini was a late addition to the field.

Celebrate the story, and the little guy.

Owner/trainer living the dream.  Nice work.  Pretty sure I backed him when he won the Brisbane Cup.  It was a tough honest win.

Conceived in Australia, born and raced in NZ, now (as has already been said) allowing the owner/trainer to live the dream.  Thumbs Up

I don't know why everyone thought he would run terrible, ran a little better than I had him rated (8th-9th) but the trip was never going to be an issue for him like it was for others, would have been keener to lay Big Orange the place then Benzini if I had to.

Rosie Myers very happy with Benzini's run & without 7 laying in on him in straight felt he could've run 3rd. She quipped, "maybe next year"
