Piccolo, the sire of Group One winner La Cucaracha and this season’s emergent juvenile Winker Watson, will stand at Lanwades Stud in Newmarket in 2008.

The former top-class sprinter has sired around 800 winners to date and will be available at a live-foal fee of £5,000.

Kirsten Rausing, general manager of the Stud, said: “We are delighted to add the outstanding sprinter Piccolo to our roster of stallions at Lanwades.

“He joins Domedriver, Hernando, Selkirk, Sir Percy and With Approval.

“This means we can now provide a wide array of distance aptitudes and pedigree variation, which offer great value and choice to domestic and international mare owners.”
