Niello Back On Track Today

Friday, 7th July 2006

Still on news with a Woodlands Stud connection, exciting young Victorian stallion Niello (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) "will make a return to the racetrack today as part of the Chatswood Stud raceday at the Seymour Turf Club." The full-brother to Woodlands Stud's boom sire Lonhro covered over 110 mares in his debut year last season, and that followed a brilliant 3YO treble of the Gr1 AJC Spring Champion Stakes, Gr1 STC Canterbury Guineas, & Gr1 Rosehill Guineas when he was campaigned in the famous cerise silks. Chatswood principal Greg Willis commented: "It is an exciting time at the moment. We have World Champion Rakti joining our stallion ranks this year, Invincible Spirit is currently leading the 1st Season Stallion Table in the U.K, and the 1st Niello foals are due in early August. Niello has proven to be as successful in the breeding shed as he was on the track having completed his first season at stud with a fertility record over 90%. He is a very promising young stallion and we are pleased to be able to parade him for the racing public and support the local industry."
