Bivouac's value increased ten fold with his win in the Newmarket Handicap

Normally a devastating, and profound Gr 1 win like we saw with BIVOUAC on Saturday, would have everyone asking two questions.

Firstly, how much is a well-bred entire like him worth? And secondly, when is he going to stud?

Well, I think you’ll be pleased with both answers.

Bivouac (Exceed And Excel-Dazzler) jog-trotted behind the speed before unleashing a monstrous turn of foot to spread-eagle what was a strong Gr 1 Newmarket Hcp field on Saturday. And if there’s two things we know, they are the Newmarket is a coveted piece of silverware for stallion owners and the sons of Exceed And Excel are generally brilliant at stud. (Helmet, Excelebration, Sidestep, Reward For Effort and now Outreach, etc).

But none will go to the barn better bred than Bivouac. Which takes us back to the questions. How much is he worth? Well, at the moment he’s owned by Godolphin who wouldn’t sell but $20 million would be a fair estimate.

When will he go to stud, looks like maybe 2022!

Yep, Bivouac, according to Godolphin’s Australian General Manager, Vin Cox, will come to Sydney for the rich Gr 1 T.J. Smith, then stay a racing proposition for at least another year!

Read that again, you heard right….12 months and maybe beyond! No shuffling off to the breeding barn like nearly every well-bred Gr 1 winning entire for this bloke just yet. He will be what he was made to be, a racehorse for some time to come.

“Look, to win a Newmarket, one of the elite races on the Australian calendar like that, well it’s very exciting,” said Cox straight after the race.

“He’s a proper horse. The form out of this race will be strong. So we hope to race him on for another 12 months at least.”

That’s the news racing fans want to hear. His win on Saturday was so dominant in such a high-profile race that it would be hard to see him beaten by anything over 1200m…in the world.

So, now, back to his pedigree.

He is a 6 x winner, 2 of those at Gr 1 level and he’s earned $2,147,000.

He is a full-brother to Gr 2 placegetter Coruscate, but his mother is where he gets his strength and outstanding lineage. She was a 2 x city winner but she is a half-sister to the great GUELPH and a half to the smart Gr 2 juvenile winner GHIBELLINES.

The Black Opal winner ENCRYPTION is found close up in the pedigree as is Bivouac’s Gr 1 winning grandmother CAMARILLA and the Champion 2YO of his era, multiple juvenile Gr 1 winner SEPOY.

Fair to say he will enjoy more success on the track, maybe even go to Ascot and or target The Everest, the he is going to have a wonderful life, henceforth at stud.
