St Petersburg / Summerhill Stud (p)


Nureyev (USA) - Miss Bold Appeal (USA)

St Petersburg continued his Group 1 success in Australia this past weekend when his son Solzhenitsyn ran third in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes in Rosehill over 1300m for trainer Rob Heathcote.

Running on good going on turf, Solzhenitsyn was just a length short of the Gai Waterhouse-trained winner, Pierro (Aus) (Lonhro), who made it 10 in a row with this win. More Joyous (NZ) (More Than Ready) squezed home for second.

Already a Group winner, Solzhenitsyn hit the headlines last year after winning the Group 1 Toorak Handicap, the Listed Strawberry Road Handicap and Group 3 Lord Mayors Cup. He has also placed in a Group 1 and Group 2.

St Petersburg, a son of Nureyev, stands at Summerhill Stud.
