Winners Flow for Nicconi
The current group of third season sires includes some very big names such as Medaglia D’Oro (USA) and I Am Invincible, but it is our boy Nicconi that is currently leading that division by winners.
Nicconi has been churning out the winners this season with 43 on the board including lightly raced three year-old filly Burgundy Lass, who scored at Sandown on Wednesday.
Prepared by Lee and Anthony Freedman, Burgundy Lass won on debut at Geelong at the back end of last season and was having her first run back from a spell.
She raced just off the pace and was too good in taking the 1000 metre dash by a short neck, her second win from four starts.
Nicconi also has more stakes-winners than any other third crop sire with brilliant two year-old Concealer as well as Ayers Rock and Exclusive Lass among his 43 winners this season.
With his oldest progeny now four year-olds, Nicconi looks like settling into being a very reliable source of winners.
Nicconi has eight entries for Magic Millions and 18 for Inglis Classic.
