Arrowfield look forward to participating in the son of Dundeel’s racing career and supporting him upon retirement to Newgate with mares from their quality broodmare band.

Militarize was purchased by China Horse Club/Newgate Bloodstock/Trilogy Racing from the Bhima Thoroughbreds draft at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale for $550,000 and he has won four of seven starts earning $1.7million with three of those wins coming in Group I races.

Racing in the famed China Horse Club colours, the Chris Waller trained Militarize was an elite two-year-old winning both the Group I ATC Sires’ Produce (1400m) and Champagne Stakes (1600m) in dominant fashion.

The best son to date of Arrowfield stallion Dundeel, he resumed this season winning the $1million Group I ATC Golden Rose (1400m) in scintillating style and is scheduled to start next in the Group I MRC Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 14th.

“Miltarize is an elite racehorse with an elite pedigree and we feel honoured to welcome Arrowfield Stud into the ownership.  The power of the Arrowfield broodmare band coupled with the broodmares owned by the many outstanding breeders in our colts partnership will give Militarize an unparalleled opportunity when he retires to stud at the completion of his racing days,” said Newgate Managing Director, Henry Field.

Completely free of Danehill blood, Militarize has a superb European female family being from a daughter of champion sire Dubawi.
