“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 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.”

The move to Caulfield saw Price move from a bit part to a big player in the Victorian training ranks. He is now firmly established in the top echelon of trainers not only in Victoria but Australia.
Mick Price has prepared more than 100 winners a season for the past 10 seasons, a position that puts him in rare company. He has enjoyed abundance of success with 36 Group 1 wins and more than 2000 career wins.
Mick Price has a fantastic record with two-year-olds and has produced a number of stallions including Extreme Choice and Flying Artie which both have started stud duties in the 2017 season.
