Trapeze Artist will be kept in training for The Everest

Trapeze Artist’s stud career is on hold for the time being with the triple Group One-winning colt to be kept in training for The Everest and possible overseas assignments.

Aquis Farm has already snapped Trapeze Artist up to represent the racing and breeding operation in the $13 million Everest in October.

Owner Bert Vieira has fielded offers of more than $40 million for Trapeze Artist whose Group One wins include two against older horses in the TJ Smith Stakes and Saturday’s All Aged Stakes.

He beat last year’s Everest winner Redzel to win Sydney’s premier Group One sprint, the TJ Smith on April 7.

“I’m very happy he will stay in training and excited to prepare him for The Everest,” trainer Gerald Ryan said.

Depending on the lifting of quarantine restrictions, Ryan and Vieira would like to take Trapeze Artist to Hong Kong for the International meeting in December and maybe Royal Ascot in 2019.

“If we can go to Hong Kong it will give us the chance to see how he copes with the travel with a view to Royal Ascot next year,” Ryan said.

Vieira bought Trapeze Artist’s dam Treppes in foal to Snitzel and when her yearling failed to reach the $350,000 price tag he put on him at the 2016 Easter Sale he took the colt home to race himself.

Trapeze Artist has now won more than $3 million with six wins from his 14 starts and Vieira said he had insured him for $50 million.

Vieira told RSN927 he was excited to see what Trapeze Artist could do on the international stage and admitted it had not been an easy decision to keep him racing.

“It’s very tough especially with what we’ve been offered for him,” he said.

“There have been a lot of sleepless nights but I would love to see what this horse can do.

“It’s a gamble but it’s exciting.”
