Ferrando - Stallion

How may we help?

Introducing new stallion "FERRANDO" who will commence stud duties this upcoming 2020 breeding season.

    

Ferrando is the first foal from Captain Rio mare Rio Nugget who hails from the family of Group winners Sound Journey, Golden Heights and Samantha Miss. He closed his career with a tally of eight wins including the Gr.3 Mongolian Khan Trophy (1200m) and placed 2nd and 3rd in the Gr.1 WRC Telegraph Handicap (1200m). He earned more than $270,000 in stakes money.

"Ferrando is one of those horses that we never saw the best of on the track, he was definitely one of New Zealand's best sprinters running 1.7 and change over 1200m. He is a group winning horse and was very unlucky not to be a multiple group 1 winner. He is a wonderfully well natured horse and so gentle on the ground, he deserves so much more and I am very excited for the next stage of his career" GRAEME ROGERSON

"He is a true gentleman with mind blowing speed from start to finish" MATT CAMERON
