Nicoscene Wins Gr2 Euclase Stakes
At Morphettville in South Australia, Widden Stud's dual Gr1-winning sire Nicconi (Bianconi-Nicola Lass, by Scenic) added a Group success when 3YO colt Nicoscene (Nicconi-Citiscene, by Snippets) scored by 1-length for trainers Lee & Anthony Freedman in the $250,000 Gr2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO colt Tudor (Strategic-Skidoodle, by Encosta de Lago) & 3YO gelding We've Got This (Hard Spun-Akiva, by Keltrice). This was the first stakes victory for Nicoscene who took his record to 4 wins and 6 placings (including the Gr3 Red Anchor Stakes) from 12 starts for $347,030 earnings. Nicoscene was purchased by Anthony Freedman Racing & Michael Wallace Bloodstock for $85,000 at the 2013 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Musk creek Farm.
