Trainer Ray Green: “He’s a typical Captaintreacherous, athletic looking with a beautiful long body. He was also a must buy. I thought we might have to pay up to $150,000 for him. I think Tony Herlihy was the underbidder on him because he was glaring at me (nicely) afterwards.”

Captain Nemo, by a much touted son of the ill-fated Somebeachsomewhere, is from a prolific winning family. His dam Arden Caviar is a half sister to Bettor’s Strike (16 wins), Arden’s Choice (6 wins), Southwind Arden (9 wins) and Rocknroll Arden (6 wins).

Third dam Bella Chip, who paced 1:52.6 in the United States, left the Group I winner Bella’s Boy (16 wins).
