US Gr1-Winner Wicked Style Joins Oaklands At $8.8k
Queensland's Darling Downs-based Oaklands Stud announced it has acquired US Gr1-winning 5YO stallion Wicked Style (Macho Uno-Deviletta, by Trempolino) for breeding duties in the upcoming season & will stand at $8,800 alongside Ferocity, All Bar One, Chateau Istana & Break The Vault. On the track, Wicked Style recorded 5 wins (including the 2007 Gr1 Lanes End Breeders Futurity over 8.5 furlongs at Keeneland & Gr3 Arlington Washington Futurity over 8 furlongs) & 4 placings (including both the Gr2 Fayette Stakes over 9 furlongs at Keeneland & Gr3 Wellington Park Handicap over 9 furlongs at Arlington Park) from 17 starts. Oaklands Stud principal Neville Stewart enthused: "His fleet-footedness as a 2YO at Gr1 level is the hallmark of an outstanding individual & that, together with his pedigree, made it impossible to ignore him."
