The Sire


Japan's 2015 Horse of the Year, six-time Group 1 winner and $12 million earner, Maurice is one of the all-time great racehorses to grace the turf in Asia. His first Australian yearlings sell in 2020.

Maurice is the best Japanese racehorse ever to stand at stud outside Japan, and Arrowfield is proud to present his first-crop Australian yearlings in 2020.

Named his country’s 2015 Horse of the Year, Champion Sprinter & Champion Miler, Maurice was also honoured with a Special JRA Award for his 2016 victories in the Tokyo Tenno Sho G1, Hong Kong Champions Mile G1 & his spectacular swansong, the Longines Hong Kong Cup G1 at Sha Tin.

Maurice retired with a record of 11 wins, six at Group 1 level, including four at 1600 metres, and prizemoney exceeding $12 million. On the 2016 Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings he was awarded a figure of 127, placing him fifth overall, and third on turf in the world.
