In a 25-start career of the highest calibre, Ellsberg emerged as an elite athlete right from the beginning. His potential shone through in his third career start with a promising performance, securing third place in the G3 Spring S. The subsequent season saw him claim victory in the G3 Festival S., followed by a commanding 3.3-length win in the G3 Liverpool City Cup.


A month later, he displayed his prowess again by securing a solid third-place finish in the G1 All Aged S., outperforming notable contenders like Mo’unga, Forbidden Love, In The Congo, and Hungry Heart.

In his most recent triumph, he claimed victory in the prestigious G1 Epsom Handicap, leaving four individual Group 1 winners in his wake, including Sibaaq and Law of Indices. This remarkable victory propelled his career earnings to over $3.3 million in prize money.
