PIERRO off to a Flying Start for the 2019-20 Season

05 Aug 19


We are only four days into the new racing season and Coolmore's Outstanding Young Sire PIERRO has hit the ground running having produced seven (7) winners including a metropolitan double at Sandown on Sunday that featured undefeated three year-old PEIDRA, who will be aimed towards the Caulfield Guineas.

Prepared at Lindsay Park, Peidra was stepping up to a Benchmark 70 event for three year-olds over 1200 metres. She was held up for a run momentarily in the straight, but showed a good turn of foot for Luke Nolen and strode clear to win by two lengths.

"He did a really good job," said Ben Hayes.

"He was boxed in for a while, but once he was clear it was a really classy effort.

"We'll be looking at better races now for him and a traditional Guineas path as being by Pierro, the 1600 metres should be ideal."

A $250,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Aquis Farm draft, PEIDRA is the third winner from stakes-placed Exceed and Excel mare Valoura, a half-sister to Group 2 winner Noire from the family of Group 2 winners Media and Timbourina.

Valoura had another Pierro colt that made $200,000 at Inglis Easter this year and she is back in foal to Pierro again.


PIERRO - At Stud

Pierro had a great season in 2018/2019 with over 100 winners that collected in excess of $9 million headed by eight (8) stakes-winners including Group 1 winners Pierata and Arcadia Queen, both horses being targeted towards The Everest.

Pierro stands at a fee of $88,000 at Coolmore this spring.

PIERRO made it 3 Champion Sires titles in a row at the conclusion of the 2018-19 Racing Season.

He had been Champion First Crop Sire, then Champion Second Crop Sire and now he’s Champion 3rd Crop Sire.

In addition, Pierro’s been a Top 10 Sire by Earnings on the General Sires Premiership the past 2 seasons which is a huge effort for a Young Sire.

Also he was in the Top 10 Sires by Stakes Winners with 8 for the Season.

He was equal second for Gr1 Winners for the season with 2 Gr1 Winners. Only I AM INVINCIBLE was ahead of him with 4 Gr1 Winners.

He was also eleventh (11th) for the number of Winners for the season with 107 from 211 runners = 50.7%.

That’s an amazingly successful season for a Third Crop Sire and Pierro with 3 Crop Championships on the mantelpiece, he looks set for another sensational year ahead.
