The first foals by Puccini have arrived this spring and the early signs are promising for the son of Encosta De Lago with his foals showing real quality, great size and a good amount of bone.
“Puccini has eye-catching looks, great size and regal blood running through his veins, there is no surprise that he is leaving these high-quality foals in his first crop” Mapperley's studmaster Simms Davison.
A 3-time Guineas winner and dominant Derby Champion, Puccini was crowned Champion 3yo Horse of the Year. He continued on from his incredible 3yo campaign to register a brilliant win in the Gr.1 Thorndon Mile which cemented his legacy as a champion racehorse and his career at stud.
Puccini has been a stellar addition to the stallion ranks at Mapperley Stud. With a full offseason under his belt, he has let down magnificently into a stunning looking stallion. Being the best performed son of the great Encosta De Lago at stud, the two time Gr.1 winner represents exceptional value for all breeders at $5000+gst.
