Brilliant Group One winner Tivaci was one of the most iconic sprinter/milers of his generation and is touted as the world’s fastest son of champion sire High Chaparral.
The ‘coup d’état’ by Waikato Stud on the Australian Breeding Industry in 2017 undoubtedly came in securing High Chaparral’s Group One winning son Tivaci prior to his magnificent win in the All Aged Stakes Gr.1 at Royal Randwick.
Before his iconic win in the Group One All Aged Stakes, the son of the highly successful High Chaparral already had the physical attributes to suggest the four-year-old would develop into a magnificent stallion, with a pedigree to match being out of the twice winning Fastnet Rock mare Breccia, herself a daughter of the Perth Cup Gr.2 winning mare Luna Tudor by Military Plume, by Sir Tristram.
The time-honoured All Aged Stakes Gr.1 added the third component to the stallion criteria by beating Australia’s best sprinters/milers which included English, Le Romain, Divine Prophet and Redkirk Warrior in the Group One 1400 metre event at Royal Randwick.
The ‘coup d’état’ was complete as Tivaci was already secured by Waikato Stud for the New Zealand breeding industry and retired henceforth.
Tivaci has now let-down into a magnificent stallion, standing over 16.1 hands and showing more muscle and strength than his own sire High Chaparral who prematurely died when aged only 15 years.
On the racecourse the Aidan O’Brien trained High Chaparral was nothing short of world-class, winning two Breeders’ Cups and the English and Irish Derbys, an Irish Champion Stakes and a third in the Prix de I’Arc de Triomphe. He has sired well over 100 Stakes winners including 22 that have won at Group One level.
Tivaci displayed a greater turn of foot than any of High Chaparral’s Group One winners, finishing with six wins between 1000 metres and 1600 metres. He won three times at Group level and also won the Listed Kensington Stakes in which he ran his last 600 metres in 32.1s.
