The SHB and Carbine Thoroughbreds combo experienced another successful sale with the duo snaring two more lovely yearlings in partnership with trainers Mick Price and Matt Cumani.
The first of these purchases was an imposing colt by first season stallion Flying Artie from the running Bel Esprit mare Soosa Rama.
The colt offered by Phoenix Broodmare Farm caught the eye of wily Caulfield trainer Mick Price who felt the colt was the most accurate portrayal of his former star galloper Flying Artie.
“I’ve been on the lookout all year for a nice colt by Flying Artie as he was a high-class galloper and is very close to my heart having trained him. This horse stood out like the proverbial, he is strong, has a good athletic frame on him and moves well, I’m delighted to buy him with Carbine and Suman Hedge Bloodstock,” said Price.
Carbine Thoroughbred General Manager Julian Hay was also a fan.
“We loved this boy as he is so true to type and is also from a really high-quality mare, at the price point we just felt he represented outstanding value,” said Hay.
SHB and Carbine struck again late in the sale purchasing a gorgeous filly by hot young sire Rubick in partnership with Ballarat based Matt Cumani Racing.
The filly catalogued as LOT 347 was offered by leading vendor Rushton Park Thoroughbreds and was purchased for 75K, a figure which Suman Hedge felt was a bargain.
“We rated this filly extremely highly based on her physique and athletic walk, we were happy to go a lot further to get her so to get her for just 75K is really pleasing,” said Hedge
Young Ballarat trainer Cumani was equally impressed.
“To be honest we rated this filly so highly we thought she would make a bit more then we had for this sale so when the opportunity arose to buy her with Carbine and Suman Hedge Bloodstock we were thrilled to join up. She is a very straight forward and racy filly and should not take long to be up and racing at two,” said Cumani.
