Coolmore Stud announced that it has purchased a major share in star 2YO colt and dual Group 1 winner, King’s Legacy. Following his first Group 1 win in the ATC Sires Produce Stakes over 1400m two weeks ago, King’s Legacy today laid out his credentials for the title of Australia’s Champion 2 year old with a dominant win in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes over the hallowed Randwick mile.
Coolmore Australia boss Tom Magnier said, “We are very excited to secure King’s Legacy’s future at Coolmore, I see him as the best stallion prospect ever produced by champion stallion Redoute’s Choice and we just had to have him. He is an incredible physical specimen, as befits a $1.4 Million yearling and boasts a wonderful pedigree. With all that in mind, his racetrack performance completes the package, being a dual 2YO Group 1 winner with hopefully more to come. He comes from one of the best families in Australia, featuring top-class stallions in Not A Single Doubt and Snippets among a host of other top horses.“
King’s Legacy was purchased for a syndicate of owners by bloodstock agent, James Harron. The existing owners will continue to race King’s Legacy in partnership with Coolmore going forward into an exciting 3YO season.
