Eureka is excited to stand the brilliantly fast young Group wining sprinting son of Choisir in Defcon

With powerful, speed physique to match his blistering juvenile speed that befits a son of Champion Sprinter Choisir, Defcon is sure to be an extremely popular commodity.

Defcon was one of the most talked about juveniles in Sydney racing, announcing himself with an outstanding display to record the fastest time of the morning at the first official 2YO trials at Randwick.  His champion trainer Peter Snowden commented, “in terms of natural ability, Defcon was up there with the very best 2yos we had. He had real talent."

Lightly raced, Defcon recorded brilliant performances as a 2yo winning the Gr 3 Black Opal Stakes (1200m) and slick runner up in both the Gr 2 ATC Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) and the Gr 3 ATC Canonbury Stakes (1100m) before taking out the Gr 3 MRC McNeil Stakes (1200m) as a 3yo.

The highest-priced yearling by Choisir of his crop when purchased by James Harron Bloodstock for $340,000, Defcon is from six-time 1000m winner Nuclear Force, by Encosta de Lago.

Defcon retires to stud for his first season and has been retained by his original owners who intend to throw their support behind this exciting young stallion prospect.

Breed for speed to a first season sire with sheer talent and precocity
