Proven Sires

Nicconi, click for more information.

Nicconi is the proven benchmark in this group and is undoubtedly great value at this fee given his consistency in producing winners week in and week out, Nature Strip aside.

He’s also far from a one trick pony as Nature Strip is one of two Group I winners for Nicconi this season joining the Bob and Sandra Peters bred G1 winning sprinter Graceful Girl.


Rubick is another proven sire in the group that gets plenty of winners and in Everest winner Yes Yes Yes showed he too is capable of getting an exceptional sprinter.

Flying Artie

Flying Artie is another young Group I producing sire, who covered 201 mares last spring on the back of siring Blue Diamond winner Artorius, so breeders following on this spring may reap the benefit of that bumper crop.

Churchill (IRE), click for more information.

Churchill has a Group I winner in the Northern Hemisphere from his first crop in French Derby winner Vadeni and you would expect his progeny here to hit their straps at three.

Stakes-winners in the table below are worldwide from August 1, 2021.
