NIELLO COLT JOINS OUR TEAM
May 26, 2010
Delbridge Racing has been fortunate to purchase a yearling colt by Niello from Glowing Image. We will be syndicating this colt over the coming weeks so stay tuned for more information.
As is our buying strategy this colt is bred and conformed like a stayer and he will be given plenty of time to be educated to ensure he can perform on the track.
Niello, pictured above, is a full brother to the champion racehorse, and already successful sire, LONHRO. Niello won 3 Group 1 races as a 3-y-old, all over 1900 metres and beyond, so it is logical that his progeny will take a bit of time and perform over staying distances. His oldest progeny are now 3-y-olds and are starting to have racetrack success. Niello recently had his first Group 1 placegetter as a sire in the Australasian Oaks with the 3-y-old IPIOGA and the reports about his progeny from some of the top trainers are very good.
The Dam is Glowing Image, a five time winner, who has produced only 2 to race and both have won and is a half-sister to the dam of black type winners GOLD LOTTEY and BESAME MUCHO (both Group 3 winners). The colt is also related, through the 3rd Dam, to the immortal MAKYBE DIVA, winner of 3 Melbourne Cups.
The colt will be trained by Grant Craven at the private training facility, RIVEREND Park, Bangholme, only 30 minutes from Melbourne. Grant trains the very impressive city winner STARRY EYED for Delbridge Racing.
