Prized Icon to stand at Kooringal Stud

Tuesday 12 February 2019, 11:08am

Dual Group One winner Prized Icon will join the stallion roster at Kooringal Stud in the NSW Riverina.

The winner of the 2016 Champagne Stakes at two, Prized Icon returned to claim an historic Victoria Derby for James Cummings who became the fourth generation of his family to lead in the winner of the blue riband.

Cummings' great grandfather Jim won with subsequent Melbourne Cup winner Comic Court, his grandfather Bart won five and his father Anthony won with Fiveandahalfstar in 2012.

Since James Cummings became head trainer for Godolphin in Australia, Prized Icon has been with Kris Lees.

By More Than Ready out of Tropical Affair, Prized Icon has won more than $2 million for his owner, Eduardo Cojuangco.

Prized Icon's 2019 fee will be $11,000 and he will stand at Kooringal alongside Duporth, Magic Albert and The Brothers War.
