TIVACI (16.1hh, 2012 High Chaparral x Breccia)
£8,000 1st October SLF
Gr.1 winning sprinter/miler Tivaci is an incredibly good looking son of High Chaparral, who reinforces his impressive physique with a phenomenal race record and a beautiful pedigree which combines Champion Australian sires High Chaparral and Fastnet Rock.
Trained by Mike Moroney, Tivaci’s racing career saw him notch up six wins from 1000m-1600m (5f – 1m) with Stakes success attained in Australia’s G1 All Aged Stakes at weight-for-age, the Gr.3 VRC CS Hayes Stakes, the Gr.3 Sunshine Coast Guineas and the Listed VRC Kensington Stakes.
Tivaci’s incredible turn of foot saw him sweeping through from last to first to defeat six Gr.1 winners in winning the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes at Randwick. That same explosive acceleration enabled him to complete the final 600m of the Listed Kensington Stakes at Flemington in a seriously fast 32.1 seconds.
Before sealing his Gr.1 status with his All Aged Stakes win, Tivaci had already been performing strongly at Gr.1 level, with 3rd place finishes in the Gr.1 VRC Cantala Stakes and Gr.1 MRC Toorak Handicap, and a 4th place finish in the Gr.1 TJ Smith Stakes.
Tivaci will be the only son of Champion sire High Chaparral, who is the producer of 19 Gr.1 winners and over 100 Stakes winners, standing at stud in the UK. From his female line Tivaci’s winning Fastnet Rock dam hails from a proven black-type family, with recent Stakes winners including Allez Wonder (Gr.1 winner), Luna Tudor (Gr.2 winner) and Pretty Pins (Gr.3 winner).
