New Metro Winner for Nicconi
Former brilliant sprinter Nicconi featured with an impressive new winner at Moonee Valley on Saturday when the Anthony Freedman trained Nicoscene scored a stylish victory.
Third at his first two runs at the provincials, Nicoscene improved sharply to stalk the leaders before forging clear to win the 1200 metre dash by more than a length.
An $85,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the draft of Musk Creek Farm for his trainer and Michael Wallace Bloodstock, Nicoscene runs for a big group of very happy owners.
Nicoscene was a successful pinhook for Musk Creek, who purchased him at the Inglis Weanlign Sale from the draft of Sefton Park Stud for $23,000.
Bred by Etak Thoroughbreds, Nicoscene is one of three winners from Citiscene, a half-sister by Snippets to South African Group III winner Royalsecuritybaby from the family of Group I AJC Australian Oaks winner Savana City.
Nicoscene is the seventh winner for dual Group I winner Nicconi, who stands this spring at a fee of $13,200.
