Epaulette filly and Exceed And Excel colt join the Triple Crown stable

Triple Crown doubled their Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale haul today with a pair of outstanding new recruits.

First to join the Red stable was Lot 549, a beautifully put together daughter of Group 1 producer Epaulette – the sire of Triple Crown’s own dual Group 3 winner MILITARY ZONE, the unbeaten Military Magic and talented performers Charretera and Crimlet.

This stunning filly will head into training with Peter & Paul Snowden, the team responsible for an endless list of outstanding racehorses including REDZEL, CAPITALIST, PRIDE OF DUBAI, RUSSIAN REVOLUTION and of course EPAULETTE himself.

If that wasn’t enough, the Snowdens also trained MOHAVE – who is out of a sister to the dam of this filly – to win the Listed Blue Diamond preview as a two-year-old 🏆

It’s a family that Peter & Paul know inside out and Chris & Michael Ward certainly know a good Epaulette when they see one!

A beautiful, well balanced filly by a stallion we have had so much luck with. Peter & Paul trained Epaulette to Group 1 success and have already had great success with this family,” said Triple Crown’s Chris Ward.

Later in the session, Triple Crown were responsible for the winning bid on Lot 572, a striking son of Champion Sire EXCEED AND EXCEL out of a brilliant racemare who is already 2/2 at stud.

This colt boasts an excellent physical and is out of a Group 1 performed mare!

He will also head into training with Peter & Paul Snowden, who have enjoyed great success with the progeny of Exceed And Excel through the likes of Earthquake and Helmet.

Exceed And Excel is also a proven sire of sires and is in the midst of another stellar year with his progeny, spearheaded by leading 3YO sprinters Bivouac and Exceedance.

“This is a cracking colt by a gun stallion. He has textbook conformation and is out of a Group 1 performer. We are stoked to secure him,” said Michael Ward.
