Lot 323 bay colt Pierro – Cosmic Powers (Not A Single Doubt) $190,000 (draft: Hallmark Stud)
Pierro (Lonhro), Champion First, Second, and Third Season Sire in Australia. Pierro only ever ran in stakes races, winning 11 of his 14 starts. The unbeaten Triple Crown winner as a two-year-old amassed $4.5 million and already had yearling progeny reach $1.5m in the sales ring. He has sired 635 winners, 47 stakes winners, including nine Group One wins.
In his seventh season at stud, Pierro resides in the top 10 sires in Australia.
Currently third highest Australian sire in the Global Sire Rankings, dam sire Not A Single Doubt is working his way up the broodmare sire list in Australia.
“He’s a lovely colt, out of a young Not A Single Doubt mare, Cosmic Powers, that was a winner as a two-year-old over 1000 metres,” said Te Akau principal David Ellis CNZM.
“We think he’s a real Karaka Million type horse with a lot of Not A Single Doubt about him, which is the reason he was bought.
“He’s a nice type, walks well, correct, and her looks to be a natural runner with the scope to train on as a three-year-old and upwards.”
