Crowned the 2017-18 Australian Champion 3YO Colt, Trapeze Artist is a mould of his four-time Champion Sire, Snitzel. A winner of over $5.5 million prizemoney, he broke numerous records during his 20-start career. After smashing Black Caviar’s Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes race record as a three-year-old, he set a new track record in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes and became the first three-year-old in history to win the prestigious Group 1 Weight-For-Age double. He also set a new track record in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes. Trapeze Artist covered over 300 mares in his first two seasons at stud and is oldest progeny are yearlings.

She is a half-sister to Segenhoe Valley, who is the dam of Listed Springtime Stakes winner, Shelby Cobra. This filly is her fourth foal. Her third foal is an unraced three-year-old. Two other foals have raced, for one winner and one placegetter. Other black-type performers fill the page including Royal Discretion, Sunrise Silence and Roulettes.
