A dynamic Inglis Millennium and Group 1-winning juvenile who trained on to an acclaimed Cox Plate performance as a Spring 3YO, followed by a Guineas triumph in the Autumn, Castelvecchio meets all the expectations of a top-drawer Australian stallion prospect.
But that's not all. A medium-sized, superbly athletic individual, Castelvecchio has a pedigree entirely free of Danehill - making him an ideal match for many Australian mares.
Rated Timeform's co-Champion 2YO, Castelvecchio progressed mightily as a Spring 3YO to chase home Japanese Horse of the Year Lys Gracieux in the 2019 Cox Plate G1, earning an international rating of 120.
He then returned in the Autumn of 2020 for a final triumph in the Rosehill Guineas G1, where he settled close to the pace, drove wide on the turn and took control 300 metres out to defeat Prince Fawaz, Reloaded & Shadow Hero.
