Australian Champion Two-Year-Old and World Champion Three-Year-Old Sprinter, Pierro is one of the most exciting young sires around. Now Champion Thoroughbreds have secured an outstanding Pierro colt who is out of a young classic and three-time group one winning mare.

The best son of Champion Sire Lonhro, Pierro is the most spectacular speedster from the Sir Tristram/Zabeel sire line at stud today. At two, Pierro went undefeated through six black-type events, including the Two-Year-Old Triple Crown of ATC Golden Slipper (gr. I), ATC Sires Produce Stakes (gr. I) and ATC Champagne Stakes (gr. I).

At three, Pierro earned a standing as a world-leader, adding five more graded stakes victories, including the ATC Canterbury Stakes (gr. I) and ATC George Ryder Stakes (gr. I).

This colt’s dam, Keep The Peace was a remarkably versatile performer, taking the Hawkes Bay Mudgway Partsworld Stakes (gr. I) at 1400m; the Otaki Maori RC WFA Stakes (gr. I) at 1600m; and the New Zealand Oaks (gr. I) at 2400m.

Successful also in the WRC Desert Gold Stakes (gr. III), Keep The Peace claimed further group one credits with placings in the New Zealand 1,000 Guineas (gr. I), Kit Ormond Memorial Spring Classic (gr. I), Waikato Draught Sprint (gr. I) and Windsor Park Challenge Plate (gr. I).

A granddaughter of Danehill, Keep The Peace, is a three-quarters sister to the graded stakes winning and group one placed Artic Wolf, and half-sister to Whosyourmaster, a three-time black-type winning sprinter who also took second in the AuRC Railway Stakes (gr. I).

The granddam, a winner six times sprinting, is half-sister to Makarpura Star, runner-up in the New Zealand 2,000 Guineas (gr. I), and winner of the Hong Kong Derby, the Hong Kong Champion's and Chater Cup, and two renewals of the Hong Kong Gold Cup.

This son of two outstanding runners is bred on the Lonhro/Danehill cross that has produced 20 stakes winners to date, including group one winners Benfica, Bounding and Exosphere, and graded winners Pinwheel, Obsequious, Messene, Wawail, Heatherly and Souchez.
