of the real highlights of last year for Widden Stud came courtesy of stalwart
sire Stratum, while quiet achiever Nicconi continues to make his mark and will
have a Magic Millions 2YO Classic runner next week in Falconic.
Stratum produced a notable Group I double in December with Takedown winning the
Group I WATC Winterbottom Stakes, while Stratum Star captured the Group I WATC
Kingston Town Stakes.
Both gallopers are Widden Stud bred and have added their names to a long list
of Group I stars to emerge from the "Valley of Champions".
