SYDNEY – Duporth’s stunning San Domenico Stakes win was a double celebration for Vinery Stud who stand his half-brother, Excites.

It’s no coincidence that Duporth (pictured) will follow the same path as Excites as his campaign unfolds given the esteem in which the AJC Sires’ Produce – G1 was held during his three-year-old season.

“Staging won over $1.2 million on the racetrack, three G2’s and was G1 placed twice but it’s looking like her lasting contribution is going to come as a broodmare,” says Vinery Stud General Manager Peter Orton.

(NB: Excites served over 100 mares in his first season).
