Golden Slipper winner Shinzo retired to stand at Coolmore Stud

Golden Slipper winner Shinzo will take up a place on the Coolmore stallion roster later this year after it was announced on Monday morning that he had been retired from racing.

Shinzo, a son of Snitzel has had just one run this year, a fourth placing in the Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 30, taking his career record to eight starts for two wins and three minor placings.

Shinzo became Snitzel’s only male winner of the world’s richest two-year-old race when he defeated Cylinder in last year’s Golden Slipper.

Shinzo earned a Timeform rating of 120 for that win, which makes him the highest-rated two-year-old by the four-time Australian Champion Sire.

“Snitzel is a four-time champion sire of two-year-olds and one of the greatest stallions we have seen in Australia in the modern era,” Coolmore Australia’s Tom Magnier said.

“We are delighted to stand his best two-year-old and best-bred son at stud Shinzo.

“The Golden Slipper has an unmatched record as a sire-making race and Shinzo has all the credentials we look for in a sire prospect, with an impeccable pedigree and incredible good looks.”

Shinzo is out of the Blue Diamond and Moir Stakes-winning mare Samaready, Shinzo placed in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) and Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) at his first two starts.

Before Shinzo broke his maiden in the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) a week before the Golden Slipper.

Shinzo’s only placing in four starts as a three-year-old was a third behind Ozzmosis and I Am Unstoppable in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Derby Day.

Shinzo provided Hall of Fame trainer Chris Waller with his maiden Golden Slipper success and the champion horseman expects him to pass that on to his progeny.

“Shinzo is a very special horse and we knew early on when he came into our system,” Waller said.

“Shinzo has a great temperament and is the most naturally gifted two-year-old I have ever trained.

“When you pair that with Shinzo’s great physique and pedigree, he is such a desirable stallion prospect.”

Shinzo’s introductory fee will be $55,000, including GST.

Chris Waller’s three-time Group 1-winning colt to stand at Newgate Farm

The horses who provided Chris Waller with last year’s Sydney 2YO Triple Crown were retired within the space of a few hours on Monday morning including Shinzo.

Newgate Farm confirmed that Militarize, its three-time Group 1-winning son of Dundeel, would be standing the upcoming season at the Hunter Valley stud.

Earlier in the day, Coolmore announced that Shinzo would be taking up a position on its stallion roster for 2024.

Shinzo provided Waller with his maiden Golden Slipper win when he won last year’s event.

Militarize, who finished 13th in the Slipper after striking interference, then came out and won the ATC Sires and Champagne Stakes at Group 1 level.

Militarize retires a winner of four of his 13 starts and a tick over $2.5 million in stakes.

The third of his Group 1 wins came in last year’s Golden Rose.

The colt was winless in four starts this campaign but ran second to Fangirl at weight-for-age in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes and was also runner-up to Celestial Legend in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas.

He also finished third against older horses in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes and Group 1 Doncaster Mile, when he conceded 5kg to winner Celestial Legend.

Shinzo and Militarize follow Cylinder as high-profile colts who have been retired to stud in recent weeks.

Cylinder, who finished second to Shinzo in the Golden Slipper and won this year’s Newmarket Handicap, was retired to stand at Darley’s Victorian base earlier this month.
