I purchased a cracking colt by Capitalist for John Thompson out of the very good USA race mare Miss Mittagong (USA).
He is the second colt by Capitalist I have purchased this year. Both are outstanding types. Could one of them go on to be a sire?
Capitalist is currently Leading the Australian 2YO List which is testament to the great job he is doing leading the likes of I Am Invincible, Not A Single Doubt, Snitzel and Fastnet Rock.
His colt Profiteer won the $2,000,000 Inglis Millenium in emphatic style with Capitalist looking like being a great sire of juveniles. Profiteer was sold leading into the Inglis race for $2,500,000 with the previous owners to get a further $20,000,000 if he wins the Golden Slipper.
The fact he has six 'Black Type' performers to his credit five months from the start of the 2yo season augers well for the future. All six of the stake’s horses are colts.
This colt is a stunning type of horse. He has a lot of presence about him. He is a terrific walking colt with good bone and great conformation. He has a great head and he handled the sales process with ease. I loved his temperament. Nothing worried him which is a good sign.
Bill Mitchell was training General Nediym when we kicked off Prime Thoroughbreds in 1997. He was a stunning horse with a rich chestnut coat. This colt isn't unlike him in many ways.
The colt's dam is Miss Mittagong (USA), a high-class American Stakes mare. Miss Mittagong won three races with second placings in the Group 2 Santa Anita Santa Maria Stakes, Group 2 Hollywood Park A Bayakoa Handicap and third placing in the Group 1 Santa Anita Margarita Invitational Stakes and Group 2 Robert J Frankel Stakes.
She has had issues at stud with this only being her second foal. In five previous breeding seasons she only had one foal which was not sold. She is by Pleasantly Perfect whose daughters at stud have achieved 24 stakes horses from just 99 winners. This is a good statistic.
Miss Mittagong (USA) is the daughter of the six time Group and Listed winner Go Go. Miss Mittagong’s ½ sister is the listed winner Champagne Taste the dam of the very good filly Miss Kentucky, a Group 3 winner and five other winners. This is a current pedigree with the duel stakes winner X Clown being recently placed 4th in Listed company.
This female line oozes class with this colt looking like being a great hope on type backed up by a female line crossed to a potential champion sire in Capitalist.

I had a number of trainers comment on him after I purchased the colt. John Thompson will do a great job with him.
