Love Hurts



***SOLD*** 3yo VIC MAIDEN "PINS" (Mid Distance) Gelding - Ran 2nd 21/05 over 2015m

Is what it is, my client bought him a few months ago off us and he's still applying fr a syndication license and can't hold on to them all and race outright, so a few of them have to go!

Very honest gelding who jhas been a sound horse to train by all reports. Can stay, just looking for slightly weaker grade than what he's been competing in. 8 starts for a handy recent 2nd and just over $7.6k banked so far.

Excellent runs over 1400m 1600m 2000m, makeing him very versatile and desirable for venues where they have distance races, as most horses can't genuinely stay like this fellow can.

Seems to handle all going and that makes him easier to place all year round.
$160,000 Yearling.
