Pitleco transfers to NSW

Former Western Australia sire Pitleco has been relocated to Taree in NSW.

His next book will be under the guidance of popular trainer Bindi Cheers who has built a reputation for backing horses up to win off short breaks.

Cheers has advertised him for a $2,200 (inc gst) service fee.

Pitleco is a son of Exceed And Excel and his dam Twiglet (Twig Moss) has also foaled Group 1 winners Easy Rocking (Barathea) and Fairy King Prawn (Danehill).  He was a $310,000 buy for Patinack Farm’s Nathan Tinkler at the 2008 Inglis Easter yearling sale but a leg injury prevented him from racing.

Initially based at Greenfields Stud in Capel, Pitleco later stood at Kim Loxton’s Ferrari Racing & Breeding in Serpentine.  His first winner arrived in January when the Brendan Corver trained Gold Club saluted at Esperance.
