Lot 946 was a colt we had earmarked early on in the sale as a potential value buy and amazingly we were able to buy him for almost half the budget we had for him! We loved this bloke as did Kris Lees so we teamed up and bought the horse for what we hope will be a bargain.
SIRE – Nicconi
Nicconi has a 74% runners to winners strike rate! If we compare this stat to the following sires you will see how good he is going
Brazen Beau – 43% | Choisir – 67% | Deep Field – 43% | Dundeel – 48% | Exceed and Excel – 74% | Fastnet Rock – 74% | Medgalia D’oro – 64% | More than Ready – 71% | Pierro – 66% | Not a Single Doubt – 70% | Rubick – 37% | Sebring – 66% | Snitzel – 69%
As you can see he doesn’t get a lot of publicity but his stats are outstanding and his runners to winners are better than almost every stallion in the Country. He has produced Nature Strip and Faatinah amongst a host of others.
What I like is the average earning of every Nicconi colt is at a very healthy $104,000. Given he had lots of ordinary mares to start his career and only the past 2 years has got a service fee increase and now is getting the better mares, we expect this will skyrocket if he upgrades the good mares like he did the bad ones.
DAM – Nightingales
The Colt is out of a Street Cry mare and Street Cry is statistically one of the worlds best broodmare sires. Nightingales was talented, only beaten 5 lengths to the Champion ARABIAN GOLD with TINTO second in the Group 2 Roses in which Nightingales pulled up with an issue and was retired to stud. She has since been served by Lonhro.
WHY WE BOUGHT HIM
When you find a horse with big stats on both the male and female side of the pedigree and one that looks as good as this bloke you will appreciate what great value he represents and he’s one we can highly recommend. Interestingly the first foal was by Reset and he reportedly had lots of issues from the moment he was born but this fellow was perfect on the scope and x-ray so he ticks all our boxes.
