Brutus now in Singapore

The Three Year Old Gelding BRUTUS (by Rubick out of Harvest Queen) has exited quarantine in Singapore and is now in work under the watchful eye of Fortuna’s Singapore Trainer, Mark Walker. Purchased by Fortuna’s John Galvin at the Inglis Online Auction in April, BRUTUS (who raced as “Field of Boaz”) in Australia has one race in NSW before being put on the market by his Owners, the China Horse Club.

Identified by Mark Walker as an ideal type for Singapore racing, he was gelded straight away once we acquired him and then spelled in NSW for a few weeks before going into quarantine in Victoria ahead of his flight to Sydney

 BRUTUS – Singapore 12th August 2019

Fortuna’s John Galvin had this to say about BRUTUS “Once we gelded this horse he put on 23 kgs in weight and is now an imposing type, standing at 16.0 hands and weighing 510kgs. Now that he has commenced work in Singapore, I estimate it will take about 10 weeks for him to acclimatise, get race fit and be ready for the first of his two mandatory trials. Once ready to race he is eligible for Restricted Maiden Grade, a Grade which carries S$75,000 of prize money. He is also eligible for the very lucrative Singapore Three Year Old Series – a three Race Series run in April/May of 2020 for total prize money of S$1.35m”
