Capitalist Book Full - Flying Artie and Extreme Choice Retired
Breednet - Media Release - Friday, 17 March 2017
year's Golden Slipper Winner Capitalist is fully booked for the 2017 breeding
season with a stellar book of mares due to line up to the Champion 2YO .
"The demand for his services have been intense since announcing his fee a
couple of weeks ago. We feel humbled
that virtually every top breeder in the nation will be supporting him this
season," said Director of Stallions and Sales Bruce Slade.
It was also announced today that Extreme Choice, winner of the Group 1 Blue
Diamond and Group 1 Moir Stakes, and Flying Artie winner of the Group 1
Coolmore Stakes and the Group 1 Blue Diamond-Golden Slipper place getter have
also been retired to stand at Newgate in 2017.
"We feel honoured to be standing these very special colts. They are the elite Australian two and
three-year-old sprinters of their generation, the cream of the crop. They are
horses with the exactly the right profiles to develop into Champion Australian
sires," said Bruce Slade.
Leading trainer Mick Price commented, "It has been a privilege to train
two colts as genuinely exceptional as Extreme Choice and Flying Artie. They will be missed in the stable, however
they retire to stud as colts that have the potential to make a major impact on
the Australian breeding industry."
Fees for Extreme Choice and Flying Artie will be announced in due course.
