Palentino to Retire

With the decision being made to retire him to stud, Palentino leaves behind a collection of amazing memories spread throughout his 18 start career. Breaking his maiden back in 2015 at start number two, he then went to Flemington to score his first black type success in the Listed Hilton Stakes. From there Palentino or ‘Dazza’ stepped out a further 15 times, all at Group and Listed Level. His first Group 1 success in the $750,000 Australian Guineas was special before he proved to us all how good he was at the Flemington Mile when he took out his second Group1 race in the $500,000 Makybe Diva Stakes. His most recent win came on March 18th when he took out the Group 2 Blamey Stakes at Flemington. Settling in a beautiful position behind the speed with Mark Zahra in the saddle, he peeled off their backs at the top of the straight and went on for a dashing 3.25 length victory – his biggest ever winning margin.

Congratulations to his big bunch of owners on his outstanding career and we wish all the best to Sun Stud on his ‘stud’ career.

18 starts, 5 wins, 3 seconds and over $1.3 million in prizemoney… Go DAZZA!
