Biography


Regal Roller comes to Living Legends with a wonderful record on the racetrack. A homebred by the Canadian stallion Regal Classic from Arantxa Rose, the chestnut was bred and raced by the Durran family.

Regal Roller started out at three in a maiden at Benalla in March 2002. It took until his 6th run to win his maiden at Bendigo in August the same year.

Regal Roller will best be remembered for his explosive front running speed around the Caulfield track and it was here that his magnificent sequence began on Caulfield Guineas Day in 2003 where he won by 4.5 lengths over 1400 metres. The horse went on to race at Caulfield on 21 occasions and chalked up 9 wins and 3 placings including 3 at Group 1 level and overall 6 group races.

He ran his final race in the C.F. Orr stakes in 2006 and was retired immediately after.

A horse with big heart, who would break others with sheer speed and tenacity, Regal Roller was a great crowd favourite and finished his career with 12 wins and $1.489 million in prizemoney.
