Choisir x Prophet Jewel (by Encosta De Lago)
Standing at Hunter Valley, NSW
A son of the highly successful and emerging sire of sires Choisir, Divine Prophet scored a career defining victory in the Gr.1 MRC Caulfield Guineas (1600m), won in the past by Champion Stallions Vain, Lonhro and Redoute’s Choice.
Posting a scintillating last to first victory in the Gr.3 ATC Up And Coming Stakes (1300m), a race previously won by Marscay, Snitzel, Fastnet Rock and Exceed And Excel – all of whom have gone on to become Champion Sires in Australia, Divine Prophet is a full-brother to the Gr.3-winning, Gr.1 placed Proisir, now a Gr.1 stallion at stud in New Zealand.
One of only three Gr.1-winning sons of his sire standing at stud in Australia, Divine Prophet is out of the blue hen mare Prophet Jewel, a daughter of the twice crowned Champion Broodmare Sire Encosta de Lago.
With his first crop yearlings selling up to $375,000 in 2020, over 17 times his initial service fee and achieving a high degree of praise from key industry participants, Divine Prophet’s progeny will head into the stables of leading trainers Chris Waller, Hawkes Racing, Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, Anthony Cummings, Kris Lees, Paul Moroney, Anthony Freedman, Tony Pike, Tony & Calvin McEvoy and many more.
"Let me tell you...Divine Prophet will make it."
Wayne Hawkes, Co-Trainer
"I buy athletes, I buy horses I can see getting to the track. We thought he was a must buy and I was delighted to buy him."
Denise Martin, Star Thoroughbreds on the Divine Prophet x Centafaith colt
"Divine Prophet is a stallion I have stacks of time for. He has an undeniable chance to be a successful stallion."
