Nathaniel's run of Stakes success continues

The excellent run of Stakes success continued over the weekend for Nathaniel with his son Back On Board finishing second in the Group 2 Derby Italiano at Rome on Sunday 21st May.

Despite running green and setting the pace, this three-year-old colt ran an excellent race for trainer A Botti and owner New Age Srl and is sure to improve.

Bred by Razza del Velino, Back On Board is out of Holy Moon (Hernando ), who has produced the winners of three consecutive renewals of the Oak d'Italia with Cherry Collect winning in 2012, Charity Line in 2013 and Final Score in 2014.

The colt was following up the Nathaniel filly Natavia's impressive victory in the Listed Hara De Bouquetot Fillies' Trial Stakes at Newbury on Saturday 20th May.

The Newsells Park Stud based stallion Nathaniel has now sired seven Group or Stakes horses already in 2017 from his first-crop, and looks to have very exciting times ahead with several fancied entries in the Epsom Derby and Oaks.
