The Dick Karreman owned & bred Catalyst (Darci Brahma) was crowned Champion Three Year Old at last nights 2020 New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing Awards.
There was considerable depth in the three-year-old division and five horses received votes, but Catalyst’s outstanding domestic campaign earned him the title.
Catalyst was unbeaten in five starts in New Zealand, including the Gr.1 Two Thousand Guineas, and won each race by more than two lengths. He had two starts in Australia, finishing a close second to top Australian three-year-old Alligator Blood at his first attempt and had an excuse when failing in the Australian Guineas.
