The Wattlefield Stud homebred Malotru landed the Group Premio Primi Passi at San Siro racecourse on just his second racecourse appearance. The striking two year old colt was given a brilliant ride by jockey Andrea Atzeni to win comfortably by 2 1/2 lengths to the second placed horse Sicomoro.

Malotru is now the winner of two races from two starts and has picked up nearly £40,000 in price money. He has come out of the race well and holds entries in several group races over the coming months.
