“Calyx always had that rare brilliance you only see in champions. He's very fast and a gorgeous-looking horse with a lovely mind” - trainer, John Gosden

"I was particularly impressed with Calyx when I saw him at Coolmore. He looks very much like a typical Australian speed horse with a powerful hindquarter, deep girth and sharp action. His pedigree and profile are ideal for Australia and he's a great value sire. I'll be supporting him this season." - Glenn Burrows, Willow Park Stud

Despite running green at Newmarket, Calyx achieved the rare feat for a newcomer of recording a rating in excess of 100" - Timeform

  • Just 10 day later after his runaway debut, he won the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot defeating triple Gr.1 winner Advertise

"Calyx looked one of the most exciting Coventry winners for some time… The placed horses from the Coventry behind Calyx upheld the form afterwards, particularly runner-up Advertise who went on to win the July Stakes and Phoenix Stakes” - Timeform

  • Explosive speed in the Gr.3 Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes at Ascot

“he's an explosive talent… put the race to bed in a matter of strides approaching the last furlong, bursting clear” - Racing Post
