He is a genuine Group I horse, being a November foal and to be achieving what he is achieving at this stage of his career is a testament to his quality.

– John O’Shea, Trainer –



A brilliant G3 winning juvenile by Champion Sire and emerging sire of sires Exceed And Excel, Furnaces ticks all the boxes for sire success.

A homebred for Darley, Furnaces was the early favourite for the Golden Slipper following a scintillating pre-Christmas debut victory by over 6 lengths, highlighting his precocity and abundant natural speed.

A track record breaker at three and an explosive winner of the G3 Kindergarten Stakes, Furnaces was second to Golden Slipper winner Vancouver in the G2 Todman Stakes.

  • Retired lightly raced with three brilliant wins at 1100M and third to Champion sprinter Chautauqua in the G2 McEwen Stakes
  • A November foal winning an October 2YO race, highlighting his precocity
  • From a superb female family featuring multiple G1 winner Melito and star 2YO colt Pariah
  • Combines the blood of Australian breeding luminaries Danehill, Star Kingdom and Sir Tristram
