NOSTRADAMUS is a half-brother to the Group 1-winning stallion and successful sire STAR WITNESS and showed enormous ability as a young horse himself, scoring on debut as a two-year-old at Moonee Valley.
NOSTRADAMUS returned at three to win the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes, joining the likes of STARTURN, FOXWEDGE, DUPORTH and CHARGE FORWARD to win the feature before going on to stud.
NOSTRADAMUS was also a Group 3 winner in the Gold Coast Guineas late in his three-year-old season before training on to score another Group 3 win, this time in the RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) in Adelaide.
NOSTRADAMUS is a son of the champion international stallion MEDAGLIA D’ORO like Australian Group 1 winners VANCOUVERand ASTERNand promises to have a long breeding career ahead of him.
This filly is of the unraced RED RANSOM mare Red Rapture, who has produced the Group 3-placed Soho Ruby among two foals to race, who are both winners. Red Rapture is a half-sister to the Blue Diamond Stakes winner KNOWLEDGEand the Group 3 winner MASLINS BEACH out of the NSW stakes winner NEW ACQUAINTANCE.
