Australia was a brilliant of the Epsom Derby and was in a
league of his own at the Curragh in the Irish Derby. He showed his true class
when taking on and beating his elders in the International Stakes at York
before just losing out to The Grey Gatsby in a never-to-be-forgotten QIPCO
Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown. In all he won, five of his eight starts
and was the joint top-rated three-year-old in the world in 2014. He was retired
soon after his Leopardstown defeat and stands at Coolmore Stud in county
Tipperary alongside his father, Galileo.
