VON COSTA DE HERO (AUS)(Encosta de Lago-Piavonic, by Scenic)
Riverbank Farm, VIC. Fee: $2,200

Von Costa de Hero Overview

Gr2 2YO winner Von Costa de Hero gained his first stakes-winner when Lord Von Costa won the Listed AR Creswick Series Final Stakes at Flemington last season. Among his 66 winners to date, Von Costa de Hero has also left stakes placed Sea Spray and Jurasound who ran fourth in the Gr1 SAJC Schweppes Oaks last season. Lady Selkirk is a multiple city winner in the current season, while Big Red Costa has picked up multiple Listed fourth placings in 2016-17 and looks promising. Von Costa Glass is also adding to his sires' growing CV with 6 wins including 2 in town.

Von Costa de Hero was a punter’s nightmare – a horse with loads of ability who always seemed to run into bad luck. He was Gr1 placed three times, in three of Australia’s highest rated races; second to Sebring in the Gr1 Golden Slipper, second to Heart of Dreams in the Gr1 Australian Guineas and third to Whobegotyou in the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas. All up his only victory was in the Gr2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, yet he won over $1 million. 

Part of the hype around Von Costa de Hero as a racehorse was down to his exemplary pedigree. By Champion Sire Encosta de Lago, from Gr1 winner Piavonic, whose nine wins included the Gr1 Manikato Stakes. Encosta de Lago has crossed well with this family, leaving dual Gr3 winner Emlozza and Von Costa de Hero’s full-brother stakes-placed Taarish.

The now retired dual Australian Champion Sire Encosta de Lago’s progeny include Chautauqua and of course the sorely missed ill-fated Northern Meteor, who is already hitting the headlines as a sire of sires particularly through the deeds of Zoustar.

  • Darley Confirms Von Costa De Hero To Stand In 2010

    Mon, 8 Mar 2010

    Darley Australia managing director Henry Plumptre also confirmed recently-retired Gr2-winning & triple Gr1-placed 4YO stallion Von Costa De Hero (Encosta De Lago-Piavonic, by Scenic) will join the Darley roster for the 2010 Australian breeding season. Plumptre noted: "Von Costa de Hero's prominence in the finishes of our stallion-making races makes him a very appealing local prospect. His heroic run in the Gr1 Golden Slipper (his half-head 2nd-placing earned a rating better than 6 of the last 10 winners) & win in the Gr2 VRC Sires' Produce as a 2YO were followed up with placings in the Gr1 Caulfield & Gr1 Australian Guineas (as a 3YO) where he ran down some very smart opposition." Von Costa De Hero (a $1.2 million yearling purchased by James Bester & consigned by Coolmore Stud at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) recorded 1 win (in 2008's Gr2 VRC Sires' Produce Stakes over 1400m at Flemington) & 5 placings (including 2009's Gr1 Cadbury Guineas over 1600m at Flemington & Gr2 Carlyon Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, plus 2008's Gr1 Golden Slipper over 1200m at Rosehill & Gr1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m) from 19 starts for $1,124,450 earnings. Darley Australia purchased a 50% interest in Von Costa De Hero for a reported $5 million soon after he won the Gr2 Sires' Produce Stakes as a 2YO.

  • Von Costa De Hero Retired To Stud

    Tue, 2 Mar 2010

    Gr2-winning & triple Gr1-placed 4YO stallion Von Costa De Hero (Encosta De Lago-Piavonic, by Scenic) has been retired to stud & trainer David Hayes confirmed he will "most likely" stand at Darley's Victorian property at Seymour. Von Costa De Hero (a $1.2 million yearling purchased by James Bester & consigned by Coolmore Stud at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) recorded 1 win (in 2008's Gr2 VRC Sires' Produce Stakes over 1400m at Flemington) & 5 placings (including 2009's Gr1 Cadbury Guineas over 1600m at Flemington & Gr2 Carlyon Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, plus 2008's Gr1 Golden Slipper over 1200m at Rosehill & Gr1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m) from 19 starts for $1,124,450 earnings.

  • Sebring Wins Gr1 Golden Slipper

    Mon, 21 Apr 2008

    On the track, Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a major Gr1 success when favoured colt Sebring (More Than Ready-Purespeed, by Flying Spur) remained undefeated from 4 starts after narrowly winning the $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) for 2YOs at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Despite missing the start and being last in the early stages of the race, Sebring (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer Gai Waterhouse) weaved through along the inside when the race looked beyond his grasp to just grab fellow colt Von Costa De Hero (Encosta De Lago-Piavonic, by Scenic), who finished ahead of filly Portillo (Red Ransom-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent). Sebring (a $130,000 yearling consigned by Corumbene Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions January Sale on the Gold Coast) also won the Listed Breeders Plate (1100m) for 2YO colts & geldings at Randwick on March 1 and the Listed Canonbury Stakes (1000m) at Randwick on February 16 & overall has now earned $2,178,800.
