Pedigree update: Caravaggio has now sired two stakes winners, adding to his impressive list of ten two-year-old winners from his first Northern Hemisphere crop. Click here for more info.
This colt is from the first Southern Hemisphere crop by Coolmore Stud’s Champion Three-year-old Sprinter in Ireland, Caravaggio.
A Group One-winning two and three-year-old, Caravaggio was unbeaten as a juvenile, winning the G1 Curragh Phoenix Stakes, G2 Royal Ascot Coventry Stakes, Listed Curragh Marble Hill Stakes and Dundalk Irish Stallion Farms 2YO Maiden Stakes.
He returned in his three-year-old-year to win three from six starts, including the G1 Royal Ascot Commonwealth Cup, G2 Curragh Flying Five Stakes and G3 Naas Lacken Stakes.
Purchased from Lime Country Thoroughbreds for A$170,000, this colt is the second foal out of the young sprint-winning Lonhro mare, Kimblewick.
She won over 1000 metres in Australia as a three-year-old and is a half-sister to 8-time winner Table Bay who scored Group wins in the G3 Kenilworth Cape Classic and G3 Langerman Handicap.
The colt’s pedigree is packed with speed with dual hemisphere Group One-winning sprinter Cape of Good Hope appearing in his immediate pedigree.
Duncan Ramage is no stranger to success with Coolmore Stud’s first season sires having experienced Group 1 success with the progeny of High Chaparral and Danehill in their early years.
He will be trained by Group One trainer Anthony Cummings at Royal Randwick and with Think Big Stud in the ownership, this colt will race in their iconic silks. DGR have limited ownership opportunities remaining so please get in touch with Duncan for more information.
“Nearly all the Caravaggio’s impressed as natural athletic horses. This colt was the best of them at the sale and Caravaggio has already had some impressive early two-year-old winners in Europe which is encouraging.”
