Testa Rossa’s dual stakes winner and best sprinting son Publishing is standing his fourth season this spring at Basil Nolan’s Raheen Stud in Warwick, Queensland.

An outstanding looking individual, Publishing was the highest priced Testa Rossa colt of his year, selling for $250,000 at the Magic Millions January yearling sale on the Gold Coast.

His sire Testa Rossa is a Top 10 stallion in Australia’s with 34 stakes winners and a winning strike-rate at a sky-high 71%.

Testa Rossa is the sire of Group 1 performers ROSTOVA and ORTENSIA, and his 2010-11 stakes winners include PANIPIQUE, SISTINE ANGEL, FONTELINA, RANGER, RED COLOSSUS, RED FLAIR, RENTAROSSA, TESTA SECRET etc.

Out of Sally Magic, who was runner up to Testa Rossa in the Magic Millions 2yo Classic, Publishing possesses a true colonial pedigree peppered with speed and precocity.  He carries a double cross of the immortal Vain, as well as being from the same family as Champion 2yo colt Rancher.

A winner of 6 races from 1200m – 1400m at 2, 3 and 4, Publishing came to notice with a hat trick of wins in Melbourne by big margins as a three-year-old which earned him short price favouritism for the Magic Millions 3yo Classic.  Suffering a setback during the race, eventually won by Gold Edition, Publishing was sidelined for 9 months.

Publishing returned as a four-year-old to capture the G3 VRC Standish Hcp (1200m), down the arduous Flemington ‘Straight Six’ . A true test of sustained speed, The Standish was also a race won by former leading Queensland based sire Iglesia.

Victory in the G3 MRC Carlyon Cup (1400m) ensured Publishing was well fancied against Niconero and Miss Finland in the G1 MRC Futurity Stakes (1600m) where he finished on their heels.

“We are delighted to be offering breeders a stallion that had genuine Group 1 ability and comes with an outstanding pedigree and conformation.” Raheen Stud’s Basil Nolan said.

“Publishing will be an ideal option for breeders wishing to race or sell and with a precocious pedigree and the ability like his sire to win at 2, 3 and 4 he’ll be an ideal QTIS stallion.

“He will suit a vast array of mares including Danzig line mares – Testa Rossa’s star filly Rostova carries a double cross of Danzig.”

Publishing stands for a service fee of $2,200 (inc gst).
