About Per Incanto

PER INCANTO 2017/18

He may only have two full crops of racing age, conceived off service fees of just $4,000 and $5,000, but already Per Incanto’s progeny have made an indelible impression on the racetracks of New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, in the process ensuring the group winning sprinting son of Street Cry is one of New Zealand’s most in demand stallions.

Champion New Zealand First season Sire by winners and runner-up in the Two-Year-Old Sires Premiership for 2014/15, Per Incanto’s three-year-olds last season highlighted the versatility of their sire, landing him Champion New Zealand Three-Year-Old Sire by winners and Champion Second Season Sire by winners titles in 2015/16, defeating none other than Savabeel for the former of those awards.

However conceivably the most telling 2015/16 season statistic is Per Incanto’s mark of seven individual stakes performing three-year-olds, again a figure only bettered amongst New Zealand stallions by Savabeel ($100,000 service fee).

Per Incanto’s 2015/16 three-year stakes performers included Glorious Beijing, second in the Group 2 Wellington Guineas at just his third start, and exciting late season find Shadows Cast, runner-up to subsequent AJC Derby winner Tavago in the Group 3 Wellington Stakes.

And with 2017 autumn racing underway, Per Incanto is well placed to add to his list of sires titles. He currently sits second to Savabeel, whom he defeated for the title last season, for number of individual three-year-old winners and third behind the Waikato Stud colossus and Darci Brahma for total individual winners.

Some of Per Incanto’s leading three-year performers in 2016/17 include Saracino, a three time Group 2 winner during the season including the Group 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington and the Group 2 Wellington Guineas, Listed winner It’s A Kind Of Magic, Group 1 1000 Guineas place-getter Sweepstake and promising sprinter Don Carlo, the winner of four races from jut seven starts.

A significant aspect of Per Incanto’s performances this season has been his high number of individual four-year-old winners, including horses who have trained on after been leading juveniles. A Group 1 winner as a two-year-old and dual Group placed in Melbourne as a spring three-year-old, Dal Cielo has won twice in Sydney in 2017 and placed second at Group 3 level over the Championships Carnival. Nahema, runner-up in the Group 2 Matamata Breeders Stakes, and Lanciato, are others in the same category that have shown excellent form in Sydney in 2017.

His first Hong Kong runner Baba Mama has won four races and captured the imagination of fans and commentators alike with his withering finishes. In Singapore, the LA bred Group 1 and dual group placed Magnum, despite being plagued by a run of bad draws, placed in all three legs of the Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge.

Per Incanto’s popularity in the sale ring continued at Karaka 2017. From a crop conceived off a service fee of just $5,000 he averaged nearly $81,000 for 21 yearlings sold, he topped the Festival averages and finished third in Select where one of his fillies, from the LA draft, sold for $300,000 to top the Sale.  

With such an impressive line-up of exisitng racing talent and the produce of substantially upgraded books of mares set to debut in the next couple of seasons, the continued ascent of Per Incanto into a deserved position amongst the ranks of New Zealand’s leading stallions is assured.

Bearing a close physical resemblance to his-own sire, (Street Cry, pictured right) at 16.1 hands and a dark bay, Per Incanto is an outstanding looking individual, athletic and possessed of an incredibly attractive head and outlook.
