Contrail Will Stand For ¥12 Million

Contrail | JRA

Japanese Triple Crown hero Contrail (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}-Rhodochrosite, by Unbridled's Song) will stand for ¥12,000,000 (£79,790/€93,636/$106,518) at Shadai Stallion Station in 2022. The price is equal to another son of Deep Impact at the Hokkaido nursery, Kizuna (Jpn), who already has a Group 1 winner to his name among his 16 black-type winners with his eldest foals just four.

The North Hills-bred 4-year-old was named the 2019  Champion 2-Year-Old Colt and 2020 Champion 3-Year-Old Colt in his native land with seven straight victories before running second to Japanese Horse of the Year Almond Eye (Jpn) (Lord Kanaloa {Jpn}) in the 2020 G1 Japan Cup. A Group 1 winner every year he raced, Contrail sealed his career with a two-length victory in Sunday's Japan Cup and retires with a record of 11-8-2-1 and $10,992,642 in earnings.
