«Dedicated to Stefano» . Riding Circle of Fire, jockey Andrea Atzeni won the Sidney Cup , a prestigious Group 1 race held at Randwick in Australia. The jockey from Nurri then ran to embrace the family of Stefano Cherchi, the unfortunate jockey from Mores, who died last week at the age of 23 , after two weeks in a coma, following a fall from his horse during a race in Australia .

A long hug to Sebastiano Cherchi, the father, and then another to his sister Eleonora and Stefano's mother. It should be remembered that Andrea Atzeni was a sort of sporting godfather for the talented Stefano Cherchi , considered one of the great promises of international galloping. As soon as he learned of the accident, Atzeni left Japan (where he had a job) to join his friend Stefano at the hospital in Canberra .

“It was a difficult period for his family and it's incredible to see them here,” declared the Atzeni champion who has won everywhere: in Ireland as in the United Arab Emirates, in France, Germany, Japan and Canada. And of course in England, where he racked up almost 1,200 hits.
