Per Incanto Strikes Three - Again
Making a habit of siring a treble of winners on a race-card, Per Incanto has accomplished the milestone for the fourth time in just over 12 months with the latest recorded at Saturday’s Trentham meeting.
Front-running filly Yemanya (Per Incanto-Romantic Liaisons by Danasinga) kicked things off, going too quickly for her R75 opponents over 1200m before the tall, long striding Canny Magic (Per Incanto-Cadonna by Don Eduardo) finished strongly to take the maiden 1600m. Four-year-old gelding Vatican News (Per Incanto-Criss Cross by Cape Cross) rounded out the treble, defeating the biggest field of the day in the R65 1000m.
Canny Magic is the 52nd individual winner from the 87 runners to date from Per Incanto’s first crop of 105 live foals, giving the young group winning sprinting son of Street Cry the very impressive winners to runners’ ratio of 60%. Look to that ratio to get even higher as promising, lightly raced members of his first foal crop return to the races over the next few months.
Nadeem Filly's Win Spotlights LA's Weanling Sale Record
Buyers considering LA’s offering at next month’s National Weanling and Broodmare Sale at Karaka were reminded of the farms enviable recent Sale record with the latest win by the Nadeem filly Tinkalicious (Nadeem-Tinkermia by Johar) at New Plymouth last Thursday.
Passed in as part of the LA draft at the 2014 National Weanling Sale, Tinkalicious, who is raced on lease from LA, has now won twice and placed third from just four career starts for New Plymouth trainer Janelle Millar.
LA’s draft of 12 weanlings at the 2017 National Weanling and Broodmare Sale at Karaka on 8 & 9 May features four lots by leading sire Per Incanto.
Pin-hooking and black-type opportunities have been in plentiful supply from recent LA drafts at the Sale.
Last year a Per Incanto filly who sold for $5,000 was resold as a yearling at the 2017 Select Sale for $65,000, while a Per Incanto filly Karen Zimmerman purchased for $3,500 from our 2015 draft was re-sold at the 2016 Ready To Run Sale for $150,000.
