(Medaglia d’Oro x Leone Chiara, by Lion Hunter)

2017 Service Fee: $8,800 (inc. GST)

A $500,000 Inglis Easter Yearling, Nostradamus was highlighted early on as the star from the first southern hemisphere crop of his sire Medaglia d’Oro.

A half-brother to dual Group 1-winning Champion 2 and 3 year old Star Witness, Nostradamus made his debut at Flemington, winning by two and a quarter lengths in impressive fashion, with jockey Glen Boss stating that “If I’d put one around his tail he could have found ­another two lengths real quick.”

Finishing two lengths off Rubick at his next start in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G), the beaten runners included eventual Group 1 winners Stratum Star and Malaguerra, the same two he would beat home at his next start in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Having his first start in New South Wales in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m), Nostradamus was too good, defeating Washington by three parts of a length with Wandjina and Hampton Court, both who went on to claim Group 1 wins at three, finishing down the track.

Fifth two starts later in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) behind Hallowed Crown, Scissor Kick, Shooting To Win and Almalad, Nostradamus was second to Brazen Beau in the Group 2 Roman Consul (1200m) next time out, defeating Delectation, Hallowed Crown and Time For War.

Successful in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) towards the end of his three-year-old season, not all went to plan during the start of his four-year-old campaign and along came Rosemont Stud who secured the magnificent looking colt.

Transferred to the Adelaide stable of leading trainer Phillip Stokes, Nostradamus ran well first-up finishing just off the leaders heels at Listed level, before producing a classy effort to claim the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m).

Two starts later, Nostradamus drew the outside barrier in the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m) at Morphettville , and after a wide run, still had the audacity to hold on and finish a handful of lengths from the winner Black Heart Bart, beating home Group 1 winners Flamberge and The Quaterback.

Nostradamus stood his second season at Rosemont Stud in 2017, with the blue-blooded colt standing at $8,800 (inc. GST).
