Unnamed, by Elsu out of Parsons Clothes ridden by Alex Markowski

Vallentino, the show stopping standardbred!

Originally unnamed, Vallentino’s racing career never gained momentum.  Proving more successful under saddle than in harness, he’s certainly grown into a stunning ridden mount with owner Alex Markowski.

Vallentino, or Bobby to most, deservingly catches the eye of judges at breed and show horse events. He has brought home a number of Champion and Supreme sashes including the 2018 Supreme Standardbred and Top Five Horse of the Show at the Waroona Agricultural Show.

The pair recently attended the Off the Track WA Metropolitan Education Clinic, benefiting from flatwork and pole lessons under the experienced eyes of Liz Tollarzo and Rosemary Inglis.
