Coolmore’s partners in the deal include the China Horse Club, Ramsey Pastorla and Peters Investments,
Vancouver’s current ownership syndicate will also continue to participate in his racing and stud career.
Vancouver is unbeaten in four career starts to date, all in Group and Listed races.
He won the G2 Todman Stakes in the fastest 1200m time ever run by a two year-old at Randwick, while his time winning the the G1 Golden Slipper equalled the time run by Pierro in 2013.
Coolmore also purchased Pierro for more than $20 million after his Slipper win.
Vancouver is now spelling but a three-year-old racing program is planned for the colt. It may include an overseas campaign in the UK to enhance his appeal as a dual hemisphere stallion.
Gai Waterhouse will continue as Vancouver’s trainer with the Golden Rose, Caulfield Guineas and WS Cox Plate already pencilled in as his spring targets.
As with most modern day stud deals, Vancouver’s current owners will receive contingency payments should Vancouver win more G1 races next season.
The contingency clauses increase the value of the deal to more than $40 million, a record figure for an Australian two-year-old.
Coolmore’s Tom Magnier said he was delighted that Vancouver, a son of the outstanding US-bred racehorse and shuttle sire Medaglia D’Oro, was returning to Coolmore where he was born and raised.
“There was obviously a massive amount of interest in the horse so we are delighted to have secured him,” said Magnier.
“He’s a brilliant colt and we and our partners couldn’t be more excited about his future.
“We are delighted to be racing this horse with his current owners next season.
“Vancouver, along with another of our recent investments Pride Of Dubai, illustrates the long-term commitment of Coolmore to the Australian breeding industry.
“Both horses were born and raised at our Jerrys Plains property in the Hunter Valley.
“Vancouver is a very good looking horse from a dominant sire line and is certain to add to the record of Slipper winners at stud.”
Blue Diamond Stakes winner Pride Of Dubai races for Coolmore and partners in the $1 million ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
