was owned by a bloke at work, Since he got rid of it, 12 starts 10 wins 2 seconds 350k won in backyard QLD . Sold it for 20k. Should see the sick look on his face every time it wins.
Was wondering how on earth he made that much money racing up there.

Townsville Cup $150k race? Ok I guess it could attract a few city horses... Cairns Cup and Cairns Amateur Cup both $150k races too! WTF?? Those horses would be lucky to win a Highway... Anyway good luck to them :thumbsu:.

There was also a bonus of $250k for winning those races. I don't think its included in the prize money. When it was 3 they thought they had a real Derby chance but it was struggling in 58 races in the end. The way its going now it can easily win a group 3 staying race in qld or even better given how crap the stayers are.
I cant even think of a horse winning with 67kgs anywhere in a non highweight race in 40 years of punting. Maybe a horse like Burglar of Bamff or Tiny's Finito back in the 80s who won a string of country races in QLD but its effing rare
