Capitalist Spelled Ahead Of Spring Return
Meanwhile, brilliant Gr1 Golden Slipper hero Capitalist (Written Tycoon-Kitalpha, by Fusaichi Pegasus) will be spelled ahead of a return in the Spring. According to horseracing.com.au, connections of the Champion 2YO in-waiting made the call after deciding he'd done enough after winning four of his five starts, including the Breeders Plate, Magic Millions 2YO Classic & Golden Slipper. He is the first juvenile to achieve the feat. Co-trainer Peter Snowden intimated that Capitalist would likely be kept to sprint distances, with the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington among his key targets later in the year. Capitalist has already earned his connections over $3.5 million in his short career, a figure that pales against his future stud value.
