Per Incanto


With five crops of racing age, mostly conceived off service fees of $4,000 and $5,000, the impact Per Incanto has made on the racetracks of Australasia and Asia has been remarkable. As a result, the group winning sprinting son of Street Cry, same sire as WINX, is one of New Zealand's most in demand stallions.

Champion New Zealand First Season Sire by winners Runner-up in the Two-Year-Old Sires Premiership for 2014/15

Champion New Zealand First Season Sire by winners and runner-up in the Two-Year-Old Sires Premiership for 2014/15, Per Incanto annexed the Champion New Zealand Three-Year-Old Sire by winners and Champion Second Season Sire by winners titles in 2015/16, defeating none other than Savabeel for the former award.

That early momentum has continued in spectacular fashion. Two new Group 1 winners in 2019 and 11 stakes performers to date in season 2018/19, have Per Incanto sitting third on the NZ Sires Premiership as at 4 April, 2019, behind only Savabeel and the late Pins.

What’s apparent is the ability of his progeny to train on. A Group 1 winner as a two-year-old and dual Group placed in Melbourne as a spring three-year-old, Dal Cielo was still winning Australian metropolitan races as a five-year-old. A winner at two, the big mare Indecision has gone to a new level as a four and five-year-old winning multiple black-type races.

Other Australian stakes performers include the Group 3 and Listed winner Lanciato and the Queensland star Amanaat, winner of eight of his last ten starts, including success at black type level. Per Incanto’s runner to winner percentage in Australia is 66% and 8.6% for runner to stakes winner.

Per Incanto’s winners to runners ratio in Asia is 75%. Hong Kong Class 2 winner Time To Celebrate is his sire’s highest rated runner in Asia while Morethanlucky is dual stakes placed, running third in the Hong Kong Classic Mile and the Hong Kong Challenge Cup (both of which were formerly Group 1 events before being re-classified last year).

Per Incanto’s popularity in the sales ring continued in 2019. At Karaka he was the second leading NZ based active sire on averages in Book 1 behind Savabeel with 12 yearlings selling for an average of $135k, and leading sire on average in Book 2, to average $100k for the entire Sale.

With such an impressive line-up of existing racing talent and the produce of substantially upgraded books of mares set to debut in the next couple of seasons, the continued ascent of Per Incanto into a deserved position amongst the ranks of New Zealand’s leading stallions is assured.

Bearing a close physical resemblance to his-own sire, (Street Cry, pictured right) at 16.1 hands and a dark bay, Per Incanto is an outstanding looking individual, athletic and possessed of an incredibly attractive head and outlook.
