Sixth Winner for Capitalist Brings Inglis Easter Update

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday February 24

Golden Slipper winning Champion 2YO Capitalist is making every post a winner as an exciting young sire and added a sixth winner to his tally on Wednesday when his promising colt Kalashnikov broke the ice at Gosford.

Fifth on debut in the Group III ATC Breeders Plate last spring, Kalashnikov appreciated a drop back to maiden class to score a long neck win at his fourth start.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt was tenacious to the line beating older horses which is never easy at this time of year for a two year-old.

A $600,000 Magic Millions purchase for James Harron Bloodstock from the Segenhoe Stud draft, which also produced today’s impressive debut two year-old winner Starry Legend (read about him here), Kalashnikov was also bred by Segenhoe.

Kalashnikov was a $600,000 Magic Millions purchase.

He is the second winner from two to race from Rough Ride, a winning half-sister by Flying Spur to Group I winner Eagle Way and stakes-winners Assertive Eagle, Impressive Eagle and Soaressa, dam of Group III winner Thermal Current.

Segenhoe will offer the current yearling from Rough Ride, a filly by Shalaa (IRE), at Inglis Easter as Lot 54.

Kalashnikov is the sixth winner – five in Australia and one in NZ- for Newgate Farm young gun Capitalist, who is the sire of stakes-winner Profiteer and six other stakes horses.
