Team Captain instantly won the hearts and minds of all Vic Husslers owners and is now set for an exciting Spring campaign targeting the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
TRLs Bloodstock team identified this son of champion European sire Galileo, formerly known as Yulong Captain as a promising stayer with a great turn of foot, who handles all types of going.
He was purchased for $121,000 at the Inglis digital sale in September 2021 and sent to the Ballarat stable of Matt Cumani to be trained.
Team Captain has had just the 3 starts for the Vic Husslers winning the Hamilton Cup on at his first run, before bolting in by 4 lengths in the Macca’s Run at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day.
His third run was a tale of woe in the rich Pakenham Cup when he missed the start, was trapped wide but still hit the line to finish a remarkable third.
Team Captain is set to deliver Vic Husslers the ultimate boast of “I own a Melbourne Cup runner”.
Go Team Captain!
