Fastnic is a winning 5yo mare by one of Australia’s most progressive sires in Nicconi. Typical of his progeny, Fastnic is an outstanding type, great length and strength, she has excellent muscle tone and balance.

Fastnic is being offered as a breeding or racing proposition, only lightly raced she is a winner over 1300m at Canberra she has also placed second on another 2 occasions from only 10 career starts. Handy at the track Fastnic also has a running, winning pedigree being one of six foals to race for her dam for five winners.

Her breeding also has a fantastic cross of international and colonial blood with her grand dam being the multiple stakes winner MEMORIES who is also a half-sister to the ZIPPING and WORK THE ROOM. Fastnic’s sire Nicconi is fast becoming one of Australia’s hottest sires both on the track and in the sale ring. Having already produced horses of the calibre of FAATINAH, CHILL PARTY, NICOSCENE, CONCEALER etc. his yearlings have also had an impact at sale selling up to $300,000 during 2016 and will be strongly represented again during the 2017 sale season
