Platinum Thoroughbreds Victoria are pleased to announce dual Group 1 winner PALENTINO has joined their 2023 stallion Roster. This son of Teofilo is one of only 2 horses to win the Group 1 double of the Australian Guineas and the Makybe Diva stakes- the only other horse to achieve this double being the legendary ZABEEL. During his illustrious career he beat horses such as Tosen Stardom, Black Heart Bart, and Harlem to name a few. His world Thoroughbred Ranking was 117. Winning over $1.3m, Palentino possessed excessive ability to enable him to race with Australia’s elite and sustained this for a number of years. As a sire Palentino has seen some large books of quality mares, with 550 mares in 4 seasons. His largest crop are currently yearlings. His first foal crop have started coming through and racing well with the unbeaten LADY TINO front and centre flying the flag for Palentino. Tino’s daughter is coming through as a promising type winning her first start to date. We also make mention of Acclimatise the Shane Fliedner trained gelding having a super promising start to his career.
