“Captivant has a deep girth, big hip, plenty of size about him and beautiful angles. He is a quality individual. Stallions like him are very easy to mate your mares to – he will suit a variety of them physically.” 

Jimmy Unwala, Avesta Bloodstock

Captivant Stallion

“Captivant was sharp enough to win a Victory Vein over 1000m pre-Christmas, superior enough to be a Group 1 winning two-year-old, and classy enough to fight out a Caulfield Guineas with Anamoe.”

Paul Snowden, Co-trainer
