Once again, we have been successful in purchasing an outstanding colt at exceptional value. We are over the moon to be able to offer you shares in this beautiful colt by gun Champion Racehorse & Sire PIERRO!

He is a tall, rangy colt that will look to get over some ground in time. He looks an ideal Derby prospect in the making, both on his physical type and his pedigree; being out of a half-sister to G1 VRC Derby winner MONACO CONSUL. He rates as an A++ on eNicks rating and is bred on the same Pierro-Danehill cross as Gr 1 winners PIERATA, ARCADIA QUEEN, LEVENDI, REGAL POWER & SHADOW HERO. See Pedigree page and the eNicks report further above.?

He was inspected by our trainers Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr, along with our Bloodstock Agent Sheamus Mills and our Director David Mourad, who all found him to be an exceptional type and exceptional value.

Watch footage of him parading and hear their comments in the videos below.

The sire – Pierro (by Lonhro - Miss Right Note) Bay 2009, 16.1 hh

Pierro was an absolute freak of nature on the racecourse. He was the undefeated champion 2yo of his era after winning the coveted Triple Crown (Gr 1 Golden Slipper, Gr 1 Sires Produce, Gr 1 Champagne Stakes), a feat rarely achieved. That labelled him as the highest-rated Australian juvenile since 1977.

He went on to win 2 more Gr 1 races at 3yo, along with 2 runner up Gr 1 placings and a 3rd in the Gr 1 Cox Plate. His race record was incredible, 14 starts (all in stakes company), 11 wins (5 Gr 1’s), 2 seconds (both Gr 1’s), and a 3rd (Gr 1 Cox Plate).

But his Champion title doesn’t stop there. He was crowned Champion First, Second & Third Season Sire in Australia.

His top performers include...

LEVENDI – multiple winner including the Gr.1 Australian Derby, Gr.2 Tulloch Stakes & Gr.3 Carbine Club Stakes for Peter Gelagotis

PINOT – 3-time winner for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott including the Gr.1 VRC Oaks & Gr.3 Ethereal Stakes

ARCADIA QUEEN - winner of the Gr.1 Kingston Town Classic, Gr.1 Caulfield Stakes, Gr.1 Mackinnon Stakes, Gr.2 West Australian Guineas, Gr.2 Theo Marks Stakes & Gr.3 Champion Fillies Stakes

PIERATA – winner of the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes, Gr.2 Missile Stakes, Gr.2 Shorts H'cap, Gr.3 BRC Vo Rogue Plate, Gr.3 Sydney Stakes, Listed Magic Million 3YO Guineas & $1,000,000 Redzel Stakes. Runner-up in the Gr.1 Randwick Guineas, Gr.1 All Aged Stakes & Gr.1 Galaxy H'cap

SHADOW HERO - Gr.1 Spring Champion Stakes, Gr.1 Randwick Guineas, Gr.3 Gloaming Stakes & Listed Phoenix Stakes winner

REGAL POWER - winner of the Gr.1 Railway Stakes, Gr.2 WATC Derby, Gr.2 Ted Van Heemst Stakes, Listed Lex Piper Stakes & Listed Melvista Stakes

FURORE - winner of the Hong Kong Derby-Gr.1 (HK), Hong Kong Classic Mile-Gr.1 (HK) & Gr.2 Jockey Club Cup. Runner-up in the Gr.1 QEII Cup at Sha Tin, Gr.1 Hong Kong Gold Cup & third in the Gr.1 ATC Rosehill Guineas
