Golden Slipper winner Capitalist won’t be seen again until the spring with confirmation the valuable colt will be spelled.
Bloodstock agent James Harron said Capitalist would enjoy a well-earned break from racing after an extended campaign that began with his win in Sydney’s first two-year-old race of the season, the Breeders’ Plate.
“Capitalist is the first horse to take out the Breeders’ Plate, Magic Millions and the Golden Slipper, which is a huge effort for a two-year-old,” Harron said.
“Along the way he has only had short freshen-ups and the time is right now for him to head out for a good break, which he does so in great order.”
Capitalist rebounded from his only defeat in the Todman Stakes to hold off Yankee Rose and Flying Artie in the Golden Slipper at Rosehill on Saturday.
He heads to the spelling paddock as the winner of four of his five starts, collecting more than $3.5 million in stakes for a high-powered syndicate which Harron put together after buying the colt from last year’s Magic Millions yearling sales for $165,000.
