First Winner for Niagara

Tuesday, 19th September 2017

Beautifully related stallion Niagara (Encosta de Lago-River Song, by Fusaichi Pegasus) sired his first winner when 3YO colt Lord Of Cloud won a 1400m maiden at Kranji in Singapore on Friday night. Lord Of Cloud is out of the Masterclass mare Miss Jean Brodie and was bred by Lime Country Thoroughbreds who are shareholders in Niagara and previously stood the stallion before their move to Australia. Niagara was also the sire of an impressive 1000m trial winner at Avondale last Thursday. The unnamed 3YO colt is out of the mare Divine Miss Em and was bred by Trish Dunell. A $620,000 yearling at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, Niagara exhibited plenty of talent winning the Gr2 Ajax Stakes in Sydney, in addition to placing in the Gr2 Sandown Guineas, Gr3 Norman Robinson Stakes & Listed Eskimo Prince Handicap. By former champion Australian sire Encosta de Lago, Niagara is a direct descendant of celebrated blue hen Best In Show meaning he hails from the same family as multiple champion Australian sire Redoute's Choice. Niagara stands at The Oaks Stud in new Zealand at a fee of $5,000 + GST.
