In-form stayer Rundle boosted the Magic Millions National Racehorse Sale in January with another outstanding victory in Brisbane on Saturday.
Rundle (5g Galileo – Ain’t Misbehavin’ by Canny Lad) was sent out a red hot favourite in the Path Development Hcp (2200m) at Doomben and won with his ears pricked.
He was purchased for $40,000 from the Williams family’s Hudson Conway draft at the MM National Racehorse Sale in June and has since earned his new connections over $100,000.
“I’m lucky to get a nice horse like him so early in my career,” trainer Kelly Purdy said. “He’s been racing very well but he’s even better on wet tracks.
“After he runs in two weeks, I’ll put him away and get him ready for the Brisbane Cup,” she explained. “Then if all goes to plan, I’ll get him into the Melbourne Cup. It’s a dream but hopefully it will come true.”
Rundle joins a growing list of Hudson Conway purchases from recent Magic Millions National Racehorse Sales following Hume, Module, Strumming and Hampden.
Lloyd and Nick Williams have indicated they will again be supporting this Racehorse Sale in January with quality gallopers.
Recent Ballina Cup winner Joe Blow and Ipswich Cup Day winner Glow Heart are other bargain buys to have emerged from recent sales. North Queensland star Mazuka and this week’s winner Reprobate are two more shining examples of Racehorse Sale success stories from the Gold Coast.
The 2012 MM National Racehorse Sale will be held following Session 6 of the Gold Coast Yearling Sale on January 17. Entries close on December 9.
