As a Golden Slipper and Magic Millions winner, Capitalist’s record as a producer of elite two-year-olds should be no surprise. Aardvark’s victory in the Listed Talindert Stakes on Saturday saw him become the Newgate resident’s 12th juvenile stakes winner from just four crops.

James Harron, in whose colours Capitalist raced, has featured in the ownership of three of those stakes-winning Capitalist youngsters, Kalashnikov, Cannonball and now Aardvark.

The first two came via Harron’s usual source of the yearling sales, costing $600,000 and $975,000 respectively. The bloodstock agent has purchased 18 Capitalist yearlings over the stallions’ five sales crops to date, at an average of $493.000.

Aardvark took an unusual path into Harron’s dark green and gold colours, being purchased privately for his colts syndicate ahead of the Magic Millions 2YO In Training Sale. As a stakes winner at his second start, he looms as a promising prospect, the fourth of Harron’s juvenile colts to win a black-type race already this season.
