Wealthy Investor gains black type at his second start

17 Dec 2021

Take a look around Scone now and it’s hard to imagine the Upper Hunter was experiencing it’s worse drought in history just two years ago! While we currently have knee high grass on the farm and Dry Creek has been running for 18 months, in the 2019 season we barely had a blade of grass in the region.


The current two year old crop were born during the worst of the drought, but early season results are showing no ill effects on those horses, perhaps even the opposite!


Capitalist colt, Wealthy Investor, ran third by just 0.36 lengths in Wednesday’s Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic, a Restricted Listed race, gaining black type at just his second start. The talented colt opened his account with a doubt third at Rosehill on a very heavy track.


Bred by Fergus Doyle, Wealthy Investor is the fourth live foal of city winning mare Princess Layla (Fastnet Rock), who has produced three winners and a stakes placegetter from four to race. Wealthy Investor was sold at the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for $75,000 to trainer Damien Lane and Impact Thoroughbreds.


His full sister is catalogued as lot 164 in the upcoming Inglis Classic Yearling Sale in Sydney.
