Syndicate manager Bill Mumford one of five part owners purchased Consular for $20,000 as a tried starter (who won his first 4 starts) but after his career looked to be over in Melbourne. Bringing him to trainer Bill Baker in Brisbane in 2003, Consular won his first start in Queensland taking out a 1030m handicap with apprentice Michael Rodd at the reigns before winning the Goldmarket later that year under jockey Brad Stewart.
Consular booked an Epsom Hcp (1600m) campaign in Sydney in October after winning his Brisbane swansong in the Listed Tattersall's Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday where he gave jockey Shane Scriven a winning hat-trick when he nailed early leader Wishart in a thrilling finish to score by a long head. While in Sydney he was trained by Kevin Moses but had no success and returned to Queensland in December 2004 to finish his career.
He retired in 2006 when unfortunately Victorian Smart And Mighty spoiled the old warrior's farewell party in the Listed Tattersall's Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm with Jim Byrne aboard. Consular's trainer Bill Baker had no doubt Consular was beaten by the handicapper who penalised him 1.5kg following his win in the Listed Ascot Hcp (1400m) at Eagle Farm on July 8 earlier that month.
Consular, whose career highlight was being runner-up to Thorn Park in the 2004 Stradbroke Hcp (1400m) at Eagle Farm, went on to be a show jumper.
