Accussi stu gran focu s'avicina Ca vinni a circundari lu casteddu
Tempu dui iorni tra sira e matina; E comu vinni stu focu ribeddu E scinneru li pezzi e li cannuni E tutta Tarmaria di lu Casteddu

colt which catches the eye.
notable winners: Casteddu
(Gr3), Pips Pride (Phoenix S.
However, there are occasions when the results are just true indications of a stallion's ability, as in the case of Efisio, whose son Casteddu
was an early example of his ability to sire talented runners from a low fee.
