Len Rhodes is no stranger to success, having stood Loosen Up – the sire of champion performer, Better Loosen Up – at his Riverside Stud, while another of his home breds is the Group Two winner Ortensia.
In that regard, Len’s Delago Brom filly, Tescani, has big shoes to fill but her all the way win at Kilmore on 10 November was nevertheless impressive.
Sold to Mick Cerchi at the 2006 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, Tescani was placed on no less than 10 occasions before her Kilmore success and has now, hopefully, turned the corner for her owners.
A half sister to Group One placed 2YO, Tuscanos, Tescani is out of the Palace Music mare, Palace Fire, a daughter of Lady Zillah (stakes placed in Australia and New Zealand) and hailing from the family of Group One winner Aimee Jay.
Palace Music is also the damsire of Delago Brom’s stakes placed filly Class Prevails.
