Palentino to stand at Sun Stud

Palentino is a welcome addition to the Victorian breeding scene, with the news he has been retired to stand as a sire at Sun Stud.

He will go to stud with an impressive race record with a brilliant win in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes, and was far from disgraced when finishing fourth in the Doncaster at Randwick, the premier mile race on the calendar.

In all he goes to stud having won five races from his 18 starts, each of his wins were all at Group level, he begins a career with an excellent strike rate at weight for age, he has not been over raced with a genuine record to support him.

Weight for age has always been a great leveller designed by Admiral Rous; thank goodness it has never been tampered with.

Palentino won five races; he showed his superiority among the three year olds that season when he won the Group 1 Australian Guineas.

He goes to stud as a five year old, he has not been over burdened with racing, plus all of his wins have been at the highest level.

Whilst he had the ability as a racehorse and the looks to go with it, he will let down into a lovely horse, he has all the qualities you like to see in a budding sire, he does catch the eye, he wasn’t behind the door when looks were handed out

Palentino, by Galileo’s brilliant sprinting son, Teofilo, who never tasted defeat in any of only his five starts as a two year old, and he did win the Dewhurst at Newmarket.

His dam, Palatime Hill, by Palace Music, won four times, leaving six foals to race, five were winners.

The grand dam Rather Droll, by Sovereign Red, won just the one race, yet left Rather Grand, a more than handy mare, leaving eight winners.

A fee for Palentino will be announced in the coming weeks, Sun Stud’s, Danielle Cheng, is excited about the four year olds introduction to the stallion ranks.

“I’m very happy to be making this announcement, because a lot of people have already been ringing and asking when is he going to stud,” she said.
