Dual Group I winning sprinter Nicconi was the most popular first season sire in Australia last spring covering 156 mares and his first foals are now being born to the delight of his many supporters.
One of the first to arrive is this gorgeous filly from the imported mare Diary Entry (USA) born at Three Bridges Thoroughbreds in Victoria.
"We are thrilled with this filly. She's only a few days old, but has good bone, strong shoulder and hindquarter, so we couldn't be happier," said Toby Liston of Three Bridges.
By the Mr Prospector sire Distant View, the filly's dam Diary Entry is a placed daughter of US Group I winner Super Staff.
"Nicconi is an outstanding type and those breeders who had the chance to inspect him at last season's stallion open days ensured he would go on to be the most popular first season sire in the country last year," said Widden Stud's Ryan McEvoy.
"As a great looking, dual Group One winning Australian sprinter, Nicconi's attributes reflect what is required to succeed as a stallion in Australia – one only has to look at the top 5 sires in Australia last season to have an appreciation of what a good, Group One winning Australian performer can achieve at stud."
Nicconi stands this spring at a fee of $22,000 and will be available for inspection later this week and over the weekend at Widden Stud's annual open days.
