At Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Widden Stud's dual Gr1-winning sire Nicconi (Bianconi-Nicola Lass, by Scenic) added a Group race success when highly regarded 3YO Australian-bred colt Tony Nicconi (Nicconi-Wickham, by Elusive Quality) opened his stakes account despite sitting outside the leader and facing the breeze in the $150,000 Gr3 Vain Stakes (1200m) for 3YO colts & geldings, defeating his fast-finishing stable-mate Long Leaf & Native Soldier. Trained by David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig, Tony Nicconi extended his unbeaten record to 2 wins form 2 starts for $166,750 in earnings. David Hayes said Tony Nicconi’s primary spring target is the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on 3 November, while Long Leaf will head to next month’s Gr1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney.
