Trainer: Peter Moody
CAPITALIST 4 wins at 2. Champion 2yo colt in Australia 2015-216. The highest earner of two-year-old prizemoney ever over $3.5 million. Winner of the Sire Making Group 1 Golden Slipper. The first colt to ever win the Breeders’ Plate, Magic Millions and Golden Slipper. Sire of the 2021 Millennium winner, Profiteer.
“Capitalist was the best two-year-old I’ve ever ridden in the Breeders’ Plate, it was like driving a Rolls-Royce. He was breathtaking in the Magic Millions and outstanding against a top-class field in the Golden Slipper.” – Jockey Blake Shinn
“Capitalist was just the perfect two-year-old, blessed with a huge amount of precocity, and ability.”- Co-Trainer Peter Snowden
Capitalist keeps going from strength to strength. He is Australia’s leading second season sire of winners by winnings and earnings, with the likes of CAPTIVANT, PROFITEER, TYCOON HUMMA & KALASHNIKOV.
Capitalist was officially retired to stud at Newgate Farm in November 2016, having chipped a fetlock in training. Manager there, Henry Field, said, “Australia is all about two-year-old racing, and to have a champion two-year-old standing at Newgate is what everyone strives for. Capitalist is the embodiment of what works in Australia – he will be heavily supported by his group of owners.”

Peter Moody has commented, “I am [excited]. I am a bit tentative about it. I have to learn to get back out there again and get on the tools again, but not too much has changed,” he said. “There is no doubt I’ll be a better trainer this time around because I’m going to be more relaxed and be able to manage my time much better, and I’ll have a smaller team.”
