Per Incanto: Premio Dei Laghi 3YO WIN

Per Incanto: 2007 PremioTudini GR3


With only three crops of racing age, conceived off service fees of just $4,000 and $5,000, the impact Per Incanto has made on the racetracks of New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore has been remarkable, in the process, ensuring the group winning sprinting son of Street Cry is one of New Zealand's most in demand young stallions.

Champion New Zealand First season Sire by winners and runner-up in the Two-Year-Old Sires Premiership for 2014/15, Per Incanto annexed the 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 award.

Per Incanto finished the 2016/17 season inside the Top 10 of the NZ Sires Premiership, comfortably the highest ranked sire with three crops of racing age, while only Savabeel and Darci Brahma had more three-year-old winners.

Leading three-year performers in 2016/17 include Saracino, a three time Group 2 winner during the season with wins over older horses in the Group 2 Foxbridge Plate as well as 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 seven starts.

An encouraging aspect of Per Incanto's 2016/17 results has been the high number of leading juveniles who have trained on. 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. Nahema, runner-up in the Group 2 Matamata Breeders Stakes, and Lanciato have also 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 electric 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.

Shadows Cast (Per Incanto - Ages Past by Slavic) picked up the 2017 Group 2 Couplands Bakery Mile after a strong fight back with Son of Maher for them both to dead heat.

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 LAdraft, sold for $300,000 to top the Sale.  

With such an impressive line-up of existing 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.
