Richenza Scores Impressive Win

Jul 17, 2014

Richenza brightend a grey Wednesday afternoon for her band of owners when she won the Glenlogan Park Stud Benchmark 70 1200 metre race at Eagle Farm yesterday.

The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor had not been sighted since early February and the victory was her fourth from 14 starts.

After drawing wide the the four-year-old was settled near the rear of the field before making a sustained run down the straight under the urgings of rider Ryan Wiggins to nab the favourite Heart Smart on the line.

The win for Wiggins was at the expense of declared rider Damian Browne who was stood down earlier in the day.

Richenza is closely related to Baldwin's Stradbroke star La Montagna and is raced by many of the same owners.
