Trainers L.D. Russell/G.F. Burns
Trainer Geoff Burns believes King Capri would have been a Group horse had injury not dogged his career. He won five times as a two-year-old taking the Hopeful Stakes, Grange Plate and Murphy Quality. But he managed just eight starts in the next three seasons. Burns was later able to patch him up to win the J.F. Canty Flying (now Eye Liner Stakes) at Ipswich and the GCTC Goldmarket.
