CIRCUS MAXIMUS

A champion miler and triple Gr.1 winner CIRCUS MAXIMUS displayed Gr.1 form as a two-year-old, training on to beat the best of his generation at three in the Gr.1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot over a mile. He franked this form in the autumn of his three-year-old season against older horses when winning the Gr.1 Prix du Moulin de Longchamp over a mile. At four, CIRCUS MAXIMUS was successful again at Royal Ascot in the Gr.1 Queen Anne Stakes over a mile joining champion FRANKELas a son of breeding colossus GALILEO to have won both these prestigious Royal Ascot races. Circus Maximus is the only foal of his dam DUNTLE, first past the post in the Gr.1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown and like her son, a dual stakes winner over a mile at Royal Ascot.

2021 SERVICE FEE: $20,000 + GST (LFG)
