Multiple Group 1 winner of the Group 1 Blue Diamond and Group 1 Canterbury Stakes
- Like his grandsire Redoute’s Choice, Artorius was a dominant Blue Diamond winner who trained on to be an elite Group 1 sprinter
- Multiple Group 1 winner & World-Class sprinter placing in the Group 1 Platinum Jubilee, Group 1 July Cup, Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 George Ryder, Group 1 Golden Rose
- Race Performances
- Race Record
- Ran the fastest last 600m in 9 of his 11 Group 1 runs – including running faster than Anamoe in the Caulfield Guineas & Home Affairs in the Coolmore
- “The last 150m he launched. He just jumped out of the ground” – Zac Purton, SKY Racing March 4, 2023
- “Artorius has been a high-class racehorse his entire career. From his first preparation at two he has stamped himself as elite and has shown incredible consistency and elite Group 1 form at three and now at four. Artorius has an incredible turn of foot, no horse has been able to go past him from 600m out. He possesses that elite sustained speed that good stallions have. He’s an incredible type physically and I have great confidence he’ll pass on all of these attributes to his progeny.” – co-trainer Anthony Freedman
- “He’s a high-class horse who is able to sustain a long sprint for three-four furlongs which at weight for age level and against older horses…you need to be able to sustain a gallop for a long time and that’s his biggest asset.” – co-trainer Sam Freedman, SENTrack’s Giddy Up with Gareth Hall – March 2023
- “Passing the 200m mark, Artorius was still 3.6 lengths off the leader and not yet at full speed. To win at Group 1 level in that scenario is not often seen. Since the start of the 2016 season, there have been 72 Group 1 Sprint race winners (up to 1200m) across all age groups and just four others outside of Artorius were more than 3.5L off the lead at the 200m mark.” – form analyst Daniel O’Sullivan on Artorius’ Blue Diamond victory
