Tivaci | Trish Dunell

Last season’s G1 All Aged S. winner Tivaci (Aus) (High Chaparral {Ire}-Breccia {NZ}, by Fastnet Rock {Aus}) will shuttle to the National Stud in Newmarket for next year’s Northern Hemisphere breeding season.

Tivaci, who enters stud this season at Waikato Stud in New Zealand, won six races from 1000 to 1600 metres. In addition to the All Aged, that includes the G3 CS Hayes S., G3 Sunshine Coast Guineas and the Listed Kensington S.

“It’s a great endorsement for Tivaci and demonstrates to breeders just how in-demand these horses with Australian Group 1 success up to the mile are,” said Waikato Stud’s Mark Chittick. “Waikato Stud identified Tivaci as a potential sire prospect as a 3-year-old, when he was consistently reeling off impressive final 600 [metre] sectionals. In the wake of Tivaci’s brilliant pattern-defying G1 All Aged S. win at Randwick, we were approached by connections of the English National Stud. When they came out to the stud to inspect him, it is safe to say they were very impressed. Since arriving at Waikato Stud, Tivaci has taken everything in his stride. Knowing how well he has done here and how well he has been received, we are extremely confident that breeders will be likewise as impressed when he flies out to England at the end of the year.”

Ben Sangster, Chairman of the National Stud, added, “This is a very exciting, ground-breaking venture for the stud and we are very much looking forward to working with one of the major stallion farms in New Zealand.”
