Pitavago tunes up with trial win

Pitavago was faultless at her first official outing for new trainer Marc Chevalier at the Hawkesbury Trials on Monday.


Jay Ford was able to jump cleanly in the small field of four and settled third throughout the first half of the 800m event.


Pitavago showed a clean pair of heels and was able to quicken without much asking from Ford and was able to push on to win the trial.


"Very pleasing to see it unfold that way," TBB Racing's Todd Blum said.


"It was only a small field and they went pretty slow in the first half of the trial but she was able to quicken and do what was asked.


"Marc has done an excellent job conditioning her so far since she has come into his care and we are looking forward to her heading to the races soon."


Chevalier purchased Pitavago through the July (Early) Catalogue and teamed up with TBB Racing to offer opportunities in the mare.


"We have a lot of faith in Marc and his training career and after one conversation on the phone I just new that we had to do something with him."


Pitavago has been touted to debut for the new stable and ownership group on Sunday at Wyong over 1100m.
