“At the end of his [Classic season], Capri could have retired to stud and covered 150 mares at something like €20,000 a time. He is a well-related son of Galileo who won the Irish Derby – beating Cracksman, no less – before his St Leger triumph.” - Julian Muscat, Racing Post, 2 Oct 2019

“Capri is a fine, big horse with a good head and a great walk. He was a very high class two-year-old and defeated all the best middle-distance colts of his generation as a three-year-old before again showing high class form at four. We couldn’t be more delighted that he’s coming to Grange.” Albert Sherwood

Impressing Breeders!

"I was very impressed with Capri when I saw him. He's a fine horse and was a very good racehorse. If the foals turn out like him we'll have no problem selling them." Kieran Mariga of Coolmara Stables

"Capri really caught the eye on physical. Great movement and substance. If you see him you'll bred to him. We certainly are." Luke Barry of Manister House Stud

"The main reason I’m using Capri is that he was such a good racehorse, but he’s also a lovely-looking horse." Billy Mangan

"I was very taken with Capri when I went to see him and decided there and then that I would breed to him. He was a top-class racehorse and is a very good-looking individual with a great walk. We sent him the very first mare we had covered this year and thankfully she has been scanned in foal." Frank Motherway of Yellowford Farm
