Capitalist Colt Wins Clarendon Stakes

Tara Madgwick - Saturday May 1

The $125,000 Clarendon Stakes (1400m) at Hawkesbury on Saturday does not carry Black Type, but some good horses have won this race and this year’s winner Capitalist colt Gleneagles may well follow in their footsteps.

Having his second run for new trainer David Payne, after starting his career with Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young, Gleneagles was well in the market after winning his previous start at Hawkesbury last month over 1000m.

He settled back in the field for Jason Collett and unleashed a big finish after turning for home to win by three-quarters of a length.



"I'm looking at a 1200 metre race at Doomben in two weeks (Champagne Classic) then the 1400 metre race at the same track (BRC Sires) at the end of the month,'' David Payne said. 

"He does find the line strongly but I don't know about the 1600 metre race (J J Atkins). It will depend on how he does at his next two starts. 

"But I do know he is a colt with a lot of talent and he will only be better as a three-year-old. He is an ideal horse for a race like the Golden Rose.'' 

A $500,000 Magic Millions purchase for Wattle Bloodstock from the B2B Thoroughbreds draft, Gleneagles runs for Aramco Racing and has the smart record of two wins and a second from four starts with prizemoney in excess of $143,000.

Bred by B2B Thoroughbreds and foaled and raised for them at Newhaven Park, Gleneagles is the first foal of Group III winning Street Boss (USA) mare Scarlet Billows, who  had a Dundeel filly last spring and is now in foal to Exceed and Excel.


Gleneagles is another classy winner for Capitalist.

Gleneagles is one of 11 first crop winners for Newgate Farm’s outstanding young sire Capitalist, who stands at a fee of $99,000 this spring.
