Results – Tesio Stakes 2012 Winner Is Star Of Giselle

October 30th, 2012

Star Of Giselle has won the Group 2 Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley Racecourse last Saturday October 27, 2012.

The Reset mare has won seven of her 18 race starts and has earned more than $390,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.

The five-year-old won the 2012 Crystal Mile by almost two lengths ahead of Tavarnelle, who finished second, and Spirit Song, who ran home for third.

Star Of Giselle has now won her past three race starts and has not finished worse than second this spring racing carnival.

Co-trainer Matthew Ellerton is yet to decide on the remainder of Star Of Giselle’s spring campaign.

“We’ll let the dust settle,” Ellerton said.

“(It’s the) first prep she’s ever been pain free.

“It was fantastic.

“She makes her own luck.”

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was aboard Star Of Giselle for her 2012 Tesio Stakes race win, which is also known as the 2012 Trojan Hand Tools Stakes.

“(She’s a) real competitor,” McEvoy said of Star Of Giselle.

“Matty (Ellerton) said he was happy with her coming into today.

“I’d like to thank the owners for putting me back on.

“She’s probably had an easy time because there wasn’t a lot of pressure up front.

“It just makes the jockey’s job really easy.”
