What a colt ?, What a Pedigree ? and What a Trainer ?

This Artie Schiller Colt was hand selected by Mick Price. Mick Price’s comments “He reminds me a little of Flying Artie who has more Group 1’s to win. He is a big strong yearling, good feet, good bone, good knees, big tough horse, very athletic. Great pedigree and type, I love him”

This impeccably bred colt is the three-quarter brother to LASER HAWK, winner of the Gr.1 Rosehill Guineas, 3rd Gr.1 AJC Australian Derby, 3rd Gr.1 George Main Stakes and 3rd Gr.1 Randwick Guineas which makes this colt a true Stallions Prospect.

This colt is also the half-brother to WAR JET an 8-time winner and the full brother to lightly raced WHIRLWIND ASCENT, winner of 3 races.

John Ledger the breaker has reported, "He is a lovely colt, really strong and powerful. He did all the tasks asked of him with no fuss and easily. I really like him a very nice colt”

This classy colt has finished being broken in and is every chance to run as an early 2yo.

He has commenced pre training and will be heading to Mick Price’s Caulfield stable when completed to start his first preparation.


Artie Schiller was the winner of 10 races 2 at 2 including the Gr.1 Breeders' Cup Mile on turf and over $2 million in stakes.

Artie Schiller is by Champion Two-Year-Old Leading Sire, and noted sire of sires El Prado, out of a dual grade one winning mare.


Navica was a winner and is the half-sister to DESERT WAR 2007 Champion Australian Middle-Distance Horse. Winner of 12 races and $3,046,610 including Gr.1 AJC Epsom H.-twice, Gr.1 Chipping Norton S, Gr.1, Queen Elizabeth S, Gr.1 VRC LKS Mackinnon S, Gr.1, STC Ranvet S, Gr.1 Apollo Stakes.
