Dam: Acing Shamrock
Foaled: Oct 14, 2020
Trainer: Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr
On day 4 of Magic Millions we struck again, this time with a breed we know very well and in conjunction with Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr we purchased lot 718 a Capitalist colt out of a Fastnet Rock mare Acing Shamrock. Purchased from the Yulong Stud draft this colt has all the attributes we look for in a colt and while he stacks up physically, we think the as time goes by this guy will just keep developing.
By Capitalist who is taking all before him currently with Gr1 winner Captivant and Profiteer among his first crop stakes winners. The colt’s dam Acing Shamrock is by sire sensation and reliable broodmare sire in Fastnet Rock. She was unraced but is a half sister to multiple stakes winner and Gr1 placed Nafaayes in South Africa. This colt is a nice mix of Capitalist speed influence and scope to train on as a 3YO as Fastnet Rock mares can produce.
This colt will have two weeks off also at Washpool Stud and then be educated along with all Mick Price’s other 2YO’s purchased at Magic Millions and head down to Cranbourne so the Price/Kent team can assess him and map out the appropriate plan for where he is at. This colt is not your typical jump and run 2YO Capitalist type. He has thrown to the dam and has plenty of Fastnet Rock in him. That means he has a lovely rein and deep girth and he will take a little time to mature. We would expect him to be a late 2YO and if he continues to develop like our bloodstock experts think he will be a lovely 3YO colt.
