Tivaci’s 3YOs continue to shine


The Tivaci train rolled on this afternoon with Eyes To Eye another impressive winner for the young Waikato Stud stallion.

The Matamata farm’s Group 1-winning son of High Chaparral has now sired four winners this month with the unbeaten Celevacci scoring twice and Mascherata and Never Been Kissed completing Tivaci’s roll of honour to date.

The Annabel Neasham-trained Eyes To Eye had finished third on debut at Muswellbrook earlier this month and made no mistake at Hawkesbury today, leading all the way in the hands of Hugh Bowman with a performance that emphasized he is another 3-year-old to follow.

Bred by Jomara Bloodstock, he was purchased by Breeze Up Bloodstock at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale. He was offered by Hallmark Stud who earlier this year sold his brother at Karaka to agent Phill Cataldo for $250,000. 

He was then offered by Prima Park at the 2020 Inglis Ready 2 Race Sale, where he was purchased by current owners Aramco Racing Pty Limited for $180,000.

Eyes To Eye is out of the Stravinsky mare Adriatico, who is also the dam of the G2 Avondale Cup winner Robusto and the Group placegetter Bobby Dee.
