Rome - Premio Guido Berardelli
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.
Latest Trainer Update: This colt really has one of the best walks, a superb stature and of course a very good pedigree, so he has a lot going for him! He is not bred to be a 5f horse, so when the 6f and 7f races open up mid season, we'll have the right races to consider for him. He's very straightforward, well mannered, mature and simply the loveliest looking specimen. Much like his older brother, he will improve with age but being an early foal should still give owners plenty of fun at 2. With him qualifying for a lot of these giant prize money sales races (shown above) and with these being run over the trips he is bred to relish, we will be targeting him very much at these.
