I am excited to offer you the opportunity to join the ownership group of our latest purchase the Capitalist - Exabelle colt. 

His dam has a sensational record at stud having produced a DOUBLE Gr.2 winner by Dissident which is an impressive achievement. 

In February alone CAPITALIST had 6 individual stakes performers: 

  • CASTANYA 1st ATC Lonhro Plate L

  • AARDVARK 1st VRC Talindert Stakes L

  • Penthouse 2nd MRC Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes Gr.3 

  • Lazzago 2nd MRC Peter le Grand Stakes Gr.3

  • Holmes a Court 3rd MRC Blue Diamond Prelude Gr.3

  • Encap 3rd ATC Eskimo Prince Stakes Gr.3 



He is by the Champion 2yo CAPITALIST who was the first colt to ever win the Breeders' Plate, Magic Millions and Golden Slipper. Becoming the highest earner of 2yo prizemoney - grossing over $3.5mill. In his breeding career he holds the 2021-2022 LEADING second + third season sire by winners. With 11 stakes performed 2yo's in his first crop. His yearlings have sold for $1,050,000, $1,050,000, $975,000, $850,000, $800,000 etc. He has sired 41 Stakes horses to date. 



We don’t often buy colts but the last one we purchased at the Classic Sales to race in Australia was the Gr.1 winner Shelby Sixtysix. 

This colt has the physical traits of an ALPHA MALE

He has a brilliant attitude, he radiates confidence and composure, he has a broad head, a big jaw, and a big set of testicles which is rare to see on a yearling. 

He has the body proportions of a good racehorse with an effortless action. 

The colt will be trained by Ciaron Maher and we think that he will be early.
