Pierata (Pierro-November Flight, by Flying Spur) was the type of racehorse that owners love to own. A tough racehorse who was consistent across several seasons, from two through to five, he won in every season he raced. If his progeny are anything like him, their owners are going to have so much fun.

With his first crop now yearlings, racehorse owners and trainers will be keen to find a Pierata that has the same fighting qualities he had. “Pierata was a high-class sprinter, one of the best of his generation, and he competed at the top level for several seasons,” said John Davis of Aquis Farm. “He’s a magnificent type that has let down extremely well. He’s been well-supported by some of the best breeders in Australia covering 312 mares in his first two seasons. It’s now half-way through his third season and Pierata should cover around 150 quality mares again this year.”
