Let’s Find the Widden Winners – STRATUM & NICCONI
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 4 January 2017
Some 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".

Stratum has 10 entries for Magic Millions
, while Nicconi has eight, two of them to be offered by Widden Stud.
