This son of champion European sire Galileo was identified by TRL’s bloodstock team as a stayer with plenty of ability, who can rattle off impressive sectionals and handles all types of going.

Team Captain has had 22 starts for 5 wins, 4 seconds and 3 thirds for a total of $145,000 in prize money with plenty more to come.

Trainer Matt Cumani agrees “what a wonderful horse and what a great addition to the team” said Cumani.

“Team Captain is a horse I’ve been watching very closely, he has great form and the horses around him also boast good form”.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better horse, a true blue blood from Ireland, from an amazing stallion in Galileo and a tremendous family, I’m really excited about it” added Cumani.

Team Captain had its first start for The Husslers on October 9, winning the Hamilton Cup. He is now being targeted at a race on Derby Day or the famous Melbourne Cup Day.
