*** Price reduction , must sell with Stud season approaching ***

First full season at Stud

18 live foals , 1 subsequently died

From then 17 , now 2yo's

11 named

6 have trialled

3 have raced , with another nominated next week.

These results have been achieved with level 3 type mares , but do indicate his ability to
'get' a 2yo . Nashian won on debut , and resumed with a nice 3rd against older horses mid May.

SCINTILLO is unique in many ways being a 2yo Gr1 winner , by a six times Gr1 winner from a dual Gr1 winner DANSEUSE du Soir incl French Thousand Guineas.

His first runner Nashian is a 2yo winner at her debut this season ( video 1 ) . From 17 2yo’s in addition to Nashian he has a 2yo filly with Gai Waterhouse who has trialled and put away and another filly placed in a jumpout and set to debut Friday . He has only served small books , it is very difficult for small studs to attract mares in competition with adjoining larger studs .

SCINTILLO had very good form lines . He won his 2yo Gr1 defeating GLADIATORUS who entered the race off 2 impressive LISTED wins , and won his next 3 after being defeated by SCINTILLO , incl Gr2 & Gr1 , US$2,000,000 DUBAI DUTY FREE , he was then rated the WORLD'S HIGHEST RATED horse.

Later in winning his Gr2 SCINTILLO defeated CHINCHON subsequent multiple Gr1 winner , incl Gr1 SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL.
