Unbeaten Triple Crown winner Justify (Scat Daddy) will shuttle to Coolmore Australia for the 2019 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, where he will stand for a private fee.

Justify will stand alongside fellow Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

“Justify was a phenomenal racehorse who re-wrote the history books through his achievements on the track. It is an absolute privilege to stand him at Coolmore Australia alongside our other Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, who has already been so well supported by Australasian breeders” said Coolmore Australia Principal, Tom Magnier. “Scat Daddy was an incredible sire who has made an instant impact as a sire of sires and we look forward to standing his best son in Jerry's Plains.”

Colm Santry, Coolmore Australia's Sales and Nominations Manager added: “History tells us; the best racehorses make the best sires. Justify is a horse of incredibly rare ability, and to stand him alongside fellow US Triple Crown winner American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) in the Hunter Valley is a huge show of faith in the strength of the Australian industry by the Magnier family.

He continued: “There have been two US Triple Crown winners in the last 40 years and thirteen in history. They will both stand alongside our very own Australian Triple Crown winning 2-year-old Pierro (Aus) (Lonhro {Aus}, who has already proven himself as one of the best sires in the country. It's probably the first time in history that three Triple Crown winners have stood at one stud in the same season anywhere in the world. It is hugely exciting and we are very much looking forward to showing Justify to Australasian breeders in a couple of months' time.”
