International Result for Per Incanto
Exposure on the international stage has provided Little Avondale Stud with another timely boost ahead of next month's New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sale series at Karaka, reports NZ Racing Desk. The win of Time To Celebrate in the Maurice Handicap (1600m) at Hong Kong's international meeting at Sha Tin on Sunday has shone a light on his exciting young sire Per Incanto. "To do it at Sunday's international meeting in front of pretty much all of the big owners around the world is just so important and great for us and New Zealand," Little Avondale's studmaster Sam Williams said. "Per Incanto has got two very good horses in Hong Kong, apart from Time To Celebrate there's also Morethanlucky, who's won three of his last four starts." He added: "Per Incanto has got a fantastic ability to upgrade mares, he's done it from second tier mares off a $4000 and $5000 fee and now he's got a new crop coming through off a $15,000 service fee." Per Incanto's numbers at Karaka in 2018 reflect the stallion's ongoing success. "Next year he's got 17 in the Book 1 Sale...the two stand-outs are Lot 670, a colt out of Tsukioka and he's a ripping type and a half-brother to Regency Bo Bo, who ran second in Hong Kong on international night," Williams said. "The other one I really like is Lot 193 out of the More Than Ready mare Exposed." Williams added: "He had 18 individual winners in November and this month he's had seven already." Crowned Champion Italian 3YO Sprinter in 2007, Per Incanto's (Street Cry-Pappa Reale, by Indian Ridge) best performer to date is Gr1 Diamond Stakes (1200m) winner Dal Cielo.
