Complacent has won three of his five race starts and has earned more than $390,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

His latest win came in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes, which he won ahead of Criterion and Savvy Nature at Royal Randwick on October 12, 2013.

Savvy Nature will go into the 2013 Victoria Derby on the back of a three length win in the Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase last start.
