The Soldier!!! "Sold"

Cracking Athlete!!! Big Strong Robust Type of Extremely Powerful 4yo NZ Bay Gelding 16 Hands. 10 Starts 1-2-1 & 7 Top 5 Finishes!!! Incredibly Fast & Consistent Brisbane City Performer On The Market!!!

Dynamic Doomben Maiden Winner 27.5k Race Over 1350m "See Photos", When Sat Right Up On The Pace & Fought On Like A True Soldier To Score On The Line :) Beat The Likes of Unbelievably Consistent City Provincial Racehorses "Couldn't Refuse" & "Top Me Up Again", So This fine Young 4yo Definitely Has A Great Future Ahead!!!

Placed 3 x 2nds & 1 x 3rd In His Past 5 Starts Over 1400m At the Gold Coast & 2nd 3 Starts Ago At The Sunshine Coast In A 30k Showcase Race, When Was Beaten A Lizards Lip To "Round of Applause" Who Came Out & Placed At Eagle Farm 50k Race Last Start Plus Also Beat "Valadyium" Who Ran 3rd & Then Came Out & Won A 35k Showcase Race Next Start At The Sunshine Coast & Was Definitely Most Unlucky In Transit Last Start At Eagle Farm, So This Bloke Is No Doubt At Least Brisbane Mid-Week Class & Certainly A No Metro Proposition In Town On A Saturday As Well :)

Was Only 2-3 Lengths Off Them In His Past 2 Starts Inc At Doomben On A Slow Track & In A Field You Would Be Proud To Own Any of Them, When "Soldiers" Tried His Absolute Heart Out, Though Didn't Really Suit the Conditions There Anyway & Didn't Have The Best of Luck Last Start Either At The Sunshine Coast, So Considering His Minimal Margins, Has No Doubt One Hoof On The Till for Sure!!!

Would Suit All City Provincial Tracks In Adelaide, Perth & Where He Races Now In Brisbane, Though Would Also Be A Cracka Carnival Candidate On The North Qld Tracks In Rocky, Mackay, Townsville & Cairns & Would Also Make A Terrific NT Carnival Prospect In Darwin & Alice Springs Being An On Pace or Front Running Racehorse As Well & Not To Mention The WA Carnivals In Broome, Carnarvon & Kalgoorlie, So Has Such A Fantastic Future Ahead In All Departments!!!

In Fact There Once Was A Legendary Racehorse In The NT Called "The Soldier" & This Young 4yo Bloke Certainly Reminds Us of Him Because of His Consistency & The Way He Never Gives Up The Ghost Without A Battle & This Undeniably Natural Trate Will No Doubt Stick By "Soldiers" Right Throughout His Very Bright Racing Career Ahead!!!

Nice Temperament, No Vices, Good Strong Legs, Tough As Nails, Ideally suits 1200m To 1400m & Loves To Dictate The Pace Up Front :)

"Soldiers" Is By "Nom Du Jeu" Who Are definitely Late Maturers & Is Also Out of A "Zeditave" Mare, So That's Where He Gets His Proven On Pace Speed :)

One Things for Sure As They Don't Call Him "Soldiers" for Nothing Being a True Fighter Who Always Gives 100% In His Races!!!..
