With an initial price of $16,500 Newgate Farm Managing Director Henry Field believes Profiteer has what it takes to make it as a high performance stallion.
Along with his sire Capitalist, Profiteer will join the likes of Extreme Choice, Flying Artie, Russian Revolution as well as Brutal at Newgate Farm.
“In my mind, he profiles very similarly to his sire Capitalist and his grandsire Written Tycoon, who were crack juveniles, very fast juveniles, who have both made an outstanding mark on the breeding landscape,” Field told Racing and Sports.
“I think he profiles up as a horse who can follow in their footsteps.
“He‘s going to stand at $15,000 plus GST and I think people feel they’ll be able to breed a mare to him and be a really good chance of getting a really fast juvenile.
“I‘m sure the horse retires to stud with his ability outweighing his eventual race record and when you have a horse with that much brilliant speed and natural ability as a two-year-old you’ve got to have a colt you’re very excited about.”
Profiteer launched his career with back to back victories with an impressive win in the $2m Inglis Millenium which had punters sitting up and taking notice.
Profiteer retired after a nine race career where owners won more then $1.5m in prize money from 3 wins and 2 placings.
