Consigned by Glenn Haven, the talented bay gelding breezed in 10.17 seconds and finished his gallop with ears pricked.

Bred by SF Bloodstock and partners, the gelding was foaled and raised at Newgate and fetched $170,000 when offered in their draft at Inglis Classic and bought by Mitchell Bloodstock.

He is the first foal of stakes-winning Snippetson mare Lady Sniper, who was bought by Newgate and partners for $350,000 at the Inglis Chairman’s Sale in 2017. She has a yearling filly by Russian Revolution and is back in foal to him again.

Capitalist had his first winner last Saturday with a hugely impressive debut victory at Randwick for Captivant and the son of Written Tycoon stands at Newgate this spring at a fee of $44,000.
