From the family of Press Statement and Pressday this stunning individual, very much stamped in the mould of his sire, the Champion Middle Distance Horse of the Year in Contributer. He is a strong well-developed animal and has completed his induction at Randwick with flying colours.

John O’Shea, who trained his father to 2 Group 1 wins (Ranvet Stakes & Chipping Norton Stakes) was delighted with what he saw when he put the colt through his paces. He sent him to the spelling paddock with a sparkle in his eye. “I did a bit more with him than I normally do with young horses. I wanted to test him, as I know what his father could do. I wasn’t disappointed, in fact I am a little bit excited by this fella,” said John

Contributer was a Champion miler who was slightly unusual. As Champion jockey James McDonald said “He had the speed of a sprinter and the stamina of a stayer. When I need that speed I asked for it and he delivered. He really was a phenomenal horse to ride”.
