Introducing Grand Syndicates’ latest colt to join the team, a sharp looking, running type by the first season speed sire NOSTRADAMUS, a son of the champion sire MEDAGLIA d’ORO and high class broodmare Leone Chiara, making him a half-brother to the dual Group 1 winning Champion two and three year-old, and successful sire STAR WITNESS.

On the racetrack, the $500,000 Easter yearling NOSTRADAMUS won his first start as a 2yo up the Flemington straight, winning the Nursery by an impressive two and a quarter lengths, against a quality field which included future dual Group 1 winner STRATUM STAR. In a high quality season of 3yo’s, he won the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill, defeating another hot field which included the G1 winning 3yo and now sire WANDJINA, before finishing 2nd behind BRAZEN BEAU in the G2 Roman Consul, beating Group 1 winners DELECTATION and HALLOWED CROWN as well as the Group 2 winner and now exciting stallion TIME FOR WAR. He would later that season win the G3 Gold Coast Guineas, again beating TIME FOR WAR. He would win the G3 Irwin Stakes the following season before joining his famous half-brother STAR WITNESS, being retired to stud. The blueblood stallion to stand at Rosemont in Victoria.
Though only yearlings, his first crop have been outstanding individuals as you’d expect from the strapping son of MEDAGLIA d’ORO, with the progeny well-received and entering some of Australia’s best stables. This colt in particular caught our eye after walking out a well balanced anforward, running type individual.

This colt’s dam is the well-bred COMMANDS mare Blessit who’s dam was the 5-time winner and multiple stakes-placed BLAZING AURA, producer of G3 winner RED FLAIR and the multiple stakes-winning Hong Kong galloper HELLO PRETTY among her 8 winning sons and daughters. With the first two foals from Blessit averaging nearly $70,000, we’re really happy to have secured this colt for a price that means we can offer full 5% shares for $2,200 including breaking in and training expenses all the way through to 2020!

To be trained by Team Grand trainer Dean Krongold from his exceptional base at Denistoun Park on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, ongoing fees are set at Grand Syndicates ‘stress-free’ $6 a day, paid quarterly via direct debit. Affordable, no fuss and simple. So if you’re looking for a nice early running type of colt without having to spend a king’s ransom for the him, this colt is just what you are looking for.
