First Winner for Salade
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 11 January 2017
Kingstar Farm's young Snitzel stallion Salade sired his first winner at Murray Bridge on Wednesday when three year-old gelding Nicoise saluted as a short priced favourite.

SaladePrepared by Michael Hickmott, Nicoise was having his first run since being gelded and led all the way to win the 1200 metre maiden by three and a half lengths.

Bred and retained to race by Matthew Sandblom, whose lime and purple colours were carried to Group I success last year by I Am A Star, Nicoise is the first winner for Celtic Night, a Secret Savings (USA) daughter of stakes-placed Shurooq.

Nicoise is the first of three consecutive foals for Celtic Night by Salade, although she had a change of pace last year and was covered by another of the Kingstar Farm sires in Fastnet Rock's Group winning son Bull Point.

With his oldest progeny now three year-olds, Salade has only had small numbers to represent him and has had six runners for Nicoise and two place-getters.

Standing at a fee of $4,400, Group II winning Salade is the first son of Snitzel to sire a winner.
