Triple Century for Widden Stud Victoria Sires

Widden Stud Victoria is in a unique position this spring in having three stallions on the roster that have all sired 100 winners this season with Star Witness joining his barn mates Nicconi and Magnus in the ‘Century Club’ on Sunday.

One to Watch – Taree

Kris Lees is never afraid to send a talented horse up the line to break his maiden in the country and he did it on Monday with a very nice juvenile carrying the Australian Bloodstock colours that has a half-brother entered for the Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale.

New Stakes-Winner for Nicconi

Bob and Sandra Peters have bid farewell in recent weeks to two of their Group I superstar mares in Arcadia Queen and Celebrity Queen, both sold at broodmare sales for a combined total of $5.7million, but there are always more stakes-winning fillies emerging from their breeding operation and we saw a new one on Saturday in Graceful Girl.

Century of Winners for Nicconi

With five winners around Australia on Saturday, Widden Stud Victoria’s Nicconi quietly passed the milestone of 100 winners for the season over the weekend and mong those winners was the talented Gary Portelli trained filly Nicci’s Fling.

One to Watch - - Newcastle

The most expensive yearling filly by Nicconi broke the ice for her first win at Newcastle on Tuesday in the Star Thoroughbreds colours.

Another Millionaire Earner for Nicconi

Winner of the Group III BRC Fred Best Classic at three, talented seven year-old Nicconi gelding Niccanova has recaptured his best form and scored a resounding win in the Group II BRC Victory Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday taking his prizemoney beyond $1million.
