Given his lightning start in 2021/22 with first crop performers including Randwick winner and Group runnerup, Midnight in Tokyo, and the rapid emergence of his 3YOs, Kobayashi could well be one of the sleeping giants of Queensland breeding. Certainly, the likes of Bring Me Kash (2 from 3) and Sojustkoby (winner on debut) are bolstering the 3YO ranks while nifty second crop 2YO, Mishani Gangster won by 3 lengths on debut.

An exciting juvenile, with exceptional speed, Kobayashi won his first two starts by more than a combined five length margin, highlighted by success in the Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup (1200m) at Caulfield, a race won in the past by the unbeaten Champion and multiple Horse of the Year Black Caviar.

The first son of the breed-shaper and recording-breaking sire I Am Invincible to stand at stud in Queensland, Kobayashi has been extremely popular with breeders, covering a significantly larger second book of mares than he did in his first season.

As a complete outcross to Danehill blood, Kobayashi’s pedigree is littered with not only 2YO winners, but black type 2YOs and being by one of Australia’s leading sires, Kobayashi is an extremely exciting proposition.

A leading first season sire in 2021/22 inc. Group placed Midnight in Tokyo, along with this season’s outstanding 2YOs Mishani Royale and unbeaten Mishani Gangster.
