Pierro has won the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse today April 6, 2013.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse was thrilled that Pierro was able to overcome his bad field position to win the 2013 George Ryder Stakes.
“I thought oh my gosh we couldn’t be a worse position,” Waterhouse said.
“I must say I very rarely get goose bumps watching horses… but today I really got goose bumps.
“He’s a special horse, he’s a sexy horse!”
Jockey Nash Rawiller made up for a mediocre ride aboard More Joyous in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes earlier today with his 2013 George Ryder Stakes win.
“I don’t think he really handled the slow ground,” Rawiller said.
“There were a few concerns throughout the race but I was very confident with where I was.
“This one’s something pretty special.”
