Fee for 2019: €40,000

The fastest son of sire of sires Montjeu

An unbeaten G1 winning Champion 2yo with the speed to win a Guineas and the class and acceleration to win the Epsom Derby by 5 lengths, a run throughout which he stayed unbeaten.

Only the third horse since Nijinsky to land the Guineas/Derby double following Nashwan and Sea The Stars.

“He was the perfect racehorse, a beautiful horse with a terrific action. Speed, class and a super-intelligent horse to go with it – he had it all.” Aidan O’Brien

Yearlings in 2019 have already sold for up to €650,000!

"A fee increase to €40,000 from €30,000 for Camelot looks restrained in light of the fact he towered over the other second-season sires in Europe this year by nearly every measure - including progeny earnings and number of both winners and stakes winners." Martin Stevens, Racing Post, 25th Nov. 2018
