Resident Little Avondale Stud stallion Per Incanto has already recorded two Group One wins as a sire this year and the Wairarapa farm has subsequently increased his service fee to $17,500+GST for the forthcoming breeding season.
Santa Monica took out the Gr.1 Railway (1200m) at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day, while his six-year-old son Shadow’s Cast was victorious in the Gr.1 Thorndon Mile (1600m) later that month at Trentham.
An instant success with his first crop of two-year-olds in 2014/15, the stakes-winning son of Street Cry has rapidly developed into one of the country’s leading stallions.
Two new Group One winners amongst 11 stakes performers in the current season has Per Incanto in third position on the New Zealand Sires’ premiership.
LA studmaster Sam Williams has been pleased with how Per Incanto has gone at stud, but is looking forward to what the future holds for his stallion.
“The better credentialed books of mares he served when we increased his service fee are just getting to the track,” he said.
“Two-year-olds Glenda Goodwitch and Hastobegood look real Guineas types”.
Meanwhile, Dubawi stallion Time Test, who served 115 mares in his first Southern Hemisphere season, remains at an unchanged service fee of $10,000+GST and Nadeem, the sire of five new stakes performers in 2018/19 including the dual Guineas winner Air Max, will stand at $5,000+GST.
