Australia’s dual record-breaking two-year-old.

2014 Service Fee: $8,800 (inc gst, free return)

Standing at Patinack Farm,
Hunter Valley, NSW

Murtajill was an incredibly precocious and good-looking young horse and has been turning heads since he was sold as a weaning at Magic Millions for a record $660,000.

He quickly justified his price tag when he blitzed a quality field of two-year-olds in the Listed Breeders Plate (1000m) in a scintillating 57.00 seconds. Two starts later he posted another race record, this time in the G3 Skyline Stakes (1200m), with a winning margin of three lengths. Starting favourite in the G1 Golden Slipper, he finished a brave fourth, beaten just over a length after being trapped wide from an outside barrier.

Murtajill was so impressive as a juvenile he was rated joint-second on the 2006-07 Australasian two-year-old Classification ahead of G1 gallopers Camarilla, Sleek Chassis and Forensics. Equally as impressive was his lofty rating as a three-year-old, a mark just shy of champion galloper Weekend Hussler.

His dam is none other than the extraordinary Skating, a dual G1 winner herself and the dam of no less than 7 individual stakes performers.

Murtajill will record a podium finish on the Second Season Sires Table 2013/14 by Winners. The handsome grey sits comfortably in third position with 38 individual winners, behind Northern Meteor and Sebring (July 2014).

The stallion is responsible for 4 Stakes Performers, 11 Individual Metropolitan Winners, 46 Individual Winners and over $1.5m in prizemoney from just 101 runners to date (July 2014).  

Leading performers include metropolitan winners; Abu Ben Adam, Earnest Desire, Femmette, Grey Countess, Jolie Madeleine, Live And Lurid, Miss Gibraltar, Murtle Miss, Murtle Turtle, Our Rock O’Reilly and Seenaan. As well as debut winner Mr Missmurt, 4-time winner Patinage, 3-time winners Another Shade, KronfeldMurvate & Reorganise, Stakes Placegetter Essie’s Pride and Macau Listed Winner Sunshine Mighty.

Murtajill is earning a reputation as a real “bread and butter sire” and trainers are more than happy to have one of his tough and hardy sons or daughters occupy a box in their stable.
