Tivaci A Coolmore And Cummings Product
Tivaci, the stud bound winner of Saturday’s G1 All-Aged Stakes at Randwick, is a Coolmore Stud product in every sense – with a touch of Bart Cummings magic.
He is the 18th G1 winner by High Chaparral and is the first for Fastnet Rock as a broodmare sire.
The four-year-old is by the late High Chaparral from Breccia, a daughter of Fastnet Rock and will soon be heading to New Zealand to start his stud career at Waikato Stud.
The Mike Moroney trained Tivaci produced a career best performance to charge home and win Saturday’s G1 weight-for-age sprint over 1400 metres by a neck from triple G1 winner Le Romain , taking his record to six wins and five placings from 21 starts with prizemoney just shy of $1 million.
Tivaci is a dual G3 winner and he had been previously placed twice at G1 level in the Cantala Stakes and Toorak Handicap last spring.
He has been racing in career best form since Waikato Stud purchased a major interest in the entire two months ago and may yet have his campaign extended to the Queensland carnival before he retires.
“We’ll have a meeting as to whether we race on or whether he goes to stud now but I’d say that will be it,” Moroney said.
“He’s the fastest son of High Chaparral probably in the world, I would think.”
Tivaci was a $250,000 Sydney Easter Yearling Sale purchase in 2014 for Paul Moroney Bloodstock from Bart Cummings’ Princes Farm draft.
Princes Farm has been operating as a breeding, pre-training and spelling facility for the Cummings family for over 20 years and has been the starting ground for many of their G1 winners including Saintly, Fiveandahalfstar, Hotel Grand and Casino Prince.
Tivaci is the first foal of his winning dam Breccia, a half-sister to the Cummings G1 winner Allez Wonder and G3 winner Pretty Pins.
Breccia is a daughter of the G2 Perth Cup winner Luna Tudor (Military Plume), herself the dam of six winners from eight foals to race.
The High Chaparral sire line continues for Coolmore Stud through his champion son So You Think, who is now the leading Australian Second Crop sire.
Waikato Stud’s Mark Chittick said Tivaci was an ideal stallion for New Zealand.
"The impressive times he ran got us motivated to get moving on a deal. He's a fantastic specimen with a great turn of foot and his pedigree will really suit our broodmare band,” Chittick said.
Tivaci will stand at Waikato alongside Savabeel, Pins, Ocean Park, Sacred Falls, Rock 'N' Pop and Rios.
