Counties Trials Win for Devil's Peak

Pencarrow Stud bred Johannesburg colt Devil's Peak sealed a comfortable win at the Counties trials over 1200m on Tuesday.

Trained by the Richard Yuill & Stephen Goodin partnership at Pukekohe, the three-year-old colt was ridden by Michael Walker for owners Peter & Philip Vela and Peter Corlett.

From the unraced Sir Tristram mare Devil's Lair, the promising colt is a half-brother to Group 1 New Zealand Oaks winner Vapour Trail and the talented Group 2 winning racemare Santagostino.

Devil's Lair foaled a colt by Encosta de Lago this season and has a two-year-old filly by Stravinsky retained by the Stud to race.
