Pierro is onto a good thing.He’s a Triple Crown winner. To those not in the know, in the horse racing business that’s a big deal.In fact, it’s such a big deal that a consortium was willing to pay $40 million for him.
“He’s a cheeky chap to be fair,” Coolmore Stud business manager Paddy Power says. “But you need that little bit of extra spice in you to do what he did as a two-year-old.”
Pierro’s racing days were successful but short-lived.
In the ever-growing global world of racing, his value was judged not in what he could earn on the track, but his breeding potential.
