Second Million Dollar Yearling for Capitalist

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday April 7

Newgate Farm’s young gun sire Capitalist got his first million dollar yearling at Inglis Easter on Tuesday and followed up quickly with his second on Wednesday when Torryburn Stud’s half-brother to Group II ATC Silver Slipper winner Home Affairs sold for $1,050,000.

$1,050,000 Capitalist colt from Miss Interiors.

The powerhouse chestnut is the third foal of star producer Miss Interiors, whose first two foals are Group I placed Aysar and then Home Affairs.

He was snapped up by James Harron Bloodstock, who also purchased and raced his sire Capitalist.

Miss Interiors has a colt foal to follow by Dundeel and is back in foal to him again.

Capitalist has proven a runaway success both on the racetrack and in the sale ring so breeders that supported him last spring at the discounted fee of $44,000 when he covered 238 mares will be feeling well pleased with their calculated gamble.
