29/01/02 Million Dollar Girl Does it Again in Thorndon Mile
0104giovana.jpg (17650 bytes)With a sensational win over Cent Home and Hail in the Group One Thorndon Mile at Trentham on Saturday, Giovana's earnings surpassed the NZ$1 million barrier.

It was another triumph for Carol Marshall, the owner, trainer and breeder of the mare, which is headed for richers races in Australia over the autumn.

There was no time for celebration for Marshall however, she was hard at work helping out Sir Patrick Hogan with his huge Cambridge Stud yearling draft at the Karaka National Yearling Sales.

Giovana has now won eight races - four of which have been Group One features. Before the Thorndon Mile she had scored wins in the Queensland Oaks, Whakanui Stud International Stakes and The Oaks Stud Classic.

Marshall will target the $1.25 million Australia Cup at Flemington and the $1 million Tancred Stakes in Sydney.

Also heading over the Tasman with the mare will be top kiwi hoop Peter Johnson. It was Johnson's eighth individual Group One winner and thirteenth race in total.

"Peter gets on so well with her," said Marshall when confirming Johnson would be heading to Australia to partner Giovana.

Following her two runs in Australia the mare will be retired to stud where she will be served by Fusaichi Pegasus toward the end of the year.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
