Palma Merenti (2013)
Bay gelding by Reward For Effort out of Tarcoola Ice
Palma Merenti returned from a spell to produce an excellent performance in winning the 3YO Maiden Plate (1100m) at Wangaratta on the 8th of May, 2017. Ridden by Katelyn Mallyon, Palma Merenti began well but was kept very deep throughout – though he travelled very comfortably and although covering tons of extra ground he swept up to the leaders in the straight and drew away to hold an advantage of a half length on the line. It looks like the first of many wins for this promising horse.
