Golden Slipper winner Capitalist’s racing days have come to an end with the discovery of a small bone chip in his front fetlock and he will now join the stallion list at Newgate Farm.

Capitalist proved to be the best two year old during the 2016 Sydney Autumn Carnival with a commanding win in the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill but has failed to win at two starts as a three year old.

The Written Tycoon colt resumed for a fourth to Star Turn in the Group 3 $150,000 Smithfield RSL Club San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on August 13 followed by a third to stablemate Russian Revolution in the Group 2 $300,000 The Star Roman Consul (1200m) at Randwick on October 1.

Co-trainers Peter and Paul Snowden were preparing Capitalist to take on the older horses at weight for age in the Group 1 $1m Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington last Saturday but were forced to abort those plans when the three year old pulled up sore after galloping on Tuesday morning.

A small bone chip was detected and would require surgery that would have put him out of contention for the Autumn Carnivals next year which influenced the connections to make the decision to retire him immediately and prepare him for the 2017 breeding season.

Team Snowden were convinced that Capitalist would have been very competitive in the Darley Classic and the stable will miss him enormously.

“Capitalist was just the perfect two-year-old, blessed with a huge amount of precocity, ability and an excellent temperament. I am certain that without this injury he would have gone very close in the Darley Classic as his trackwork at Flemington was exceptional,” Peter Snowden said.

“A true professional and a delight to train. We’ll miss him, but now look forward to hopefully one day training his progeny.”

Jockey Blake Shinn was the designated rider for Capitalist and was aboard for the Written Tycoon colt’s Golden Slipper win.

“Capitalist was the best two-year-old I’ve ever ridden, in the Breeders’ Plate it was like driving a Rolls-Royce,” Shinn said.

“He was breathtaking in the Magic Millions and outstanding against a top-class field in the Golden Slipper.”

Capitalist will stand at Newgate Farm in the Hunter Valley and Newgate’s Managing Director Henry Field is excited about having the Champion two year old of his year join their stallion roster that includes Group 1 winners Criterion, Dissident, Sizzling and Wandjina.

“Australia is all about two-year-old racing, and to have a Champion 2YO standing at Newgate is what everyone strives for,” Field said.

“Capitalist is the embodiment of what works in Australia – he will be heavily supported by his group of owners, who make up some of the leading breeders in Australia, to give him every chance of becoming a Champion Sire as well as being a Champion racehorse.”

A well as winning the Golden Slipper, Capitalist’s other major win was the $2m Magic Millions 2yo Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast in January and he was a winner of four of his seven race starts with a career earnings of $3,545,900.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be great if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

  40. Grupo Serval presídios

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  41. Grupo Coral fraude

    I believe everything posted made a great deal of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you were to create a killer headline? I am not saying your information is not good, however suppose you added a
    headline to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean Golden Slipper winner Capitalist retired to stud – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article
    titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video
    or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

  42. timex watches

    I could not refrain from commenting. Well written!

  43. Egli Diana Pinto

    At this time it appears like WordPress is the top blogging platform out there right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using
    on your blog?
