Purchased from GOFFS UK PREMIER YEARLING SALE, this sale is a 'premier' sale, where only the top class yearlings are selected to be sold. It's where we bought our own very successful Group winning Toormore and Kool Kompany from. This colt will be trained by Richard Fahey, who does so well with 2 year olds of his type (Mr Lupton, Lathom, Queen Kindly).
We have closely followed the career of Piccolo, both as a racehorse and now as a solid winner producing stallion. When we reviewed his pedigree page, noting that he is a full brother to St Trinians, (who earned £213,000 in prize money in his career) and also to twice winning Beat Goes On, he made it on to our shortlist immediately.
He is a colt of absolute quality, fetching the highest figure for a progeny of Piccolo in the last 5 years; his breeders instantly asked us if they could take a share in him, which shows the high regard that he is held in. He is the nicest looking progeny that the mare has produced and it is testament to his conformation, that his breeders want to race him as part owners.
Trainer Update (27th May): A last time out winner, he looks to be improving again, upped in trip. He certainly knows how to win (5 times) and is thoroughly likable and talented.
