Captivant (AUS)

2018 Capitalist (Written Tycoon) x Speedboat (Commands)
Kia Ora Stallions

Captivant was sharp enough to win a Victory Vein over 1000m pre-Christmas, superior enough to be a G1 Champagne Stakes-winning two-year-old, and classy enough to fight out a Caulfield Guineas with Anamoe. Timeform rated 121, Captivant is the best son of Champion 2YO Capitalist and descends from one of Australia’s most exciting sirelines.
