A genuinely top class colt by a proven sire of sires in Choisir, Divine Prophet scored a career defining victory in the Group I MRC Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over subsequent Group I VRC Australian Guineas winner Hey Doc.
A winner at two and Group I placed in the ATC Champagne Stakes behind dual Group I winner Prized Icon, Divine Prophet also posted a sparkling win in the Group III ATC Up and Coming Stakes (1300m) beating subsequent Group II winner Derryn.
He is a full brother to Group I placed Group III winner Proisir (now at stud in New Zealand) and is from blue hen producer Prophet Jewel, whose 2017 yearling filly by Exceed and Excel sold for $1.2 million at Inglis Easter.
- By champion sprinter and leading sire Choisir, the sire of over 80 stakes-winners including Group I winner and Group I sire Starspangledbanner.
- Winner from 1200 to 1600 metres, retiring with $880,525 in prizemoney and was a luckless fourth in the Group I ATC Golden Rose to Astern.
- From a daughter of champion sire Encosta de Lago and second dam is by another champion sire in Centaine.
