Consistent 3YO Filly Gets Third Win of the Season

MATRIOSKA, a 3-year-old filly from the second crop of DAAHER, was a clear winner by 2 1/2 lengths in a 1 3/8-mile turf event at Grosseto, in Tuscany. This was her third win of the year. She was a 17-length maiden winner in January on a surface rated good at Albenga and also won on the heavy going at Roma. This year, MATRIOSKA has already made nine starts and has been on the board in eight of those nine starts. Out of the Exploit mare, Extra Holy, who is a half-sister to Horse of the Year Holy Bull, MATRIOSKA races for owner Razza Dell’Olmo and trainer Riccardo Menichetti.
