Diana Anceschi is one ‘fine’ breeder and has managed to produce herself an outstanding performer in De Fine Lago.
Racing out of the Tony Vasil stable after being sold for $32,500 at the 2007 Inglis Melbourne Premier II Yearling Sale, De Fine has since trebled the asking price with five wins and four placings from just 14 starts.
Importantly, and seemingly typical of the Delago Brom breed, De Fine Lago is improving the more he matures: the 4YO has now won four of his last five starts this time in, culminating in his first city win at Moonee Valley on 13 December in the PFD Food Services Handicap over 2500m.
Out of Diana’s Flying Spur mare, Fine Glass – who sadly died in September of last year – De Fine Lago is linebred 3 x 3 to the influential Mr Prospector mare, Rolls, dam of Flying Spur and grandam of Encosta de Lago.
