***SOLD*** Practically giving away this $190K earning METRO CLASS VIC SPRINTER!

Instructions are to sell, we'd been messed about by a few parties, OWNERS HAVE DISCOUNTED HEAVILY, to move him on! Genuine Sale!!!!!!!

Hard to find these honest types who are ready made racehorses under 20 grand!
It is what it is, a horse who's given connections plenty of thrills, but now time for someone else to enjoy him.

Genuine reasons for recent few runs, trainer tells me he's been a bit over the top since coming into work, culminating in his out of character bad behavior 22nd August, playing up at barrier and needing to trial again to stewards satisfaction, which given his unblemished record to date, shouldn't be cause for much concern.

He's since had a 5 week freshen up, which he's needed - connections have decided to sell, instead of pressing on with prep and getting him reinstated themselves.

Go though his form and you'll see in May he beat Red Choux's at Geeling in BM70 company. That horse has since goe on and won multiple races in town and banked $130k plus to date!

*My understanding is he's eligible for those lucrative 0MW City races in Brisbane and W.A, check with relevant race clubs for "special conditions" to verify this*

Too many good runs to list here, form attached!

All vet tests welcome. Genuine sale, boutique trainer has babies in work and needs to make way for the new generation.
