The Fastest 2YO Ever at Randwick Over 1000m

Unbeaten Stakes-Winning 2YO

WON the $500,000 Inglis Nursery-R.L., on debut by 2¼ lengths in a track record time of 56.02. He won it in a faster time than the likes of Extreme Choice, Wild Ruler, She Will Reign, Mossfun etc.

"Acrobat made a real statement winning the $500,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m) stopping the clock at a blistering 56.0s - the fastest time ever run by a two-year-old over the course and distance" - Ray Thomas, Racenet, 12th December 2020

"Acrobat was an elite 2YO who we never saw the best of due to an unfortunate accident. He was one of the most naturally gifted two-year-olds we have trained. Horses with that much talent put it into their progeny and I look forward to buying his yearlings." - trainer Ciaron Maher
