Seventh Winner for Capitalist

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday March 3

Currently leading the first season sires list and the overall two year-old sires list, Newgate Farm’s Capitalist added a seventh winner – six in Australia and on in NZ – to his tally at Launceston on Wednesday evening.

Stakes-placed on debut last month, the Adam Trinder trained filly Miss Tuppence scored an easy victory as a short priced favourite winning by nearly three lengths over 1120m.

A $70,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Supreme Thoroughbreds draft for owner Wayne Roser, Miss Tuppence is the eighth winner from Starlevie, a half-sister to stakes-placed Palace Glow, the dam of Group winners Red Colossus and Nediyms Glow, grand-dam of this season’s stakes-winning 2YO General Beau.



With the Golden Slipper just weeks away, Capitalist is the current leader of the Australian General Sires List as seen below. He covered 237 mares in Australia last spring to be the second busiest sire in the country in 2020.
