CHESTNUT – 2005 – 15.3 HH

Glen Eden Stud is proud to stand Scintillo, the beautifully bred Italian champion galloper. A son of Fantastic Light, the six-time Group 1 winning stallion, Scintillo is the only sire son standing at stud in Australia.

Scintillo is beautifully bred with a lovely pedigree. He is Fantastic Light’s highest rated son and is out of Thatching’s highest-rated mare, Danseuse du Soir.

He provides local breeders with a great opportunity to tap into an exceptional international pedigree line.

On the track, Scintillo won the Group 1 Gran Criterium in Milan and was crowned Champion 2YO colt in Italy in 2007 and the ROA All-weather Horse Of The Year in 2009.

He raced in four countries at the top level including the 2000 Irish Guineas, the King George VI and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Grand Prix De Saint-Cloud and the Japan Cup.

Scintillo was purchased by Victorian Len Lucas to be aimed at the 2010 Melbourne Cup under the care of trainer Robbie Griffiths.

After winning an impressive trial first up, he unfortunately suffered a career-ending suspensory injury, and a career in the breeding barn beckoned.
