But considering that after winning the Slipper, Vancouver and Pierro were sold to stud for somewhere in the vicinity of $50 million dollars each, their price tag seems almost redundant.
Yes, this is wishful think on our part. But we have three runners nominated to run at Terang on Friday. If all three were to win, the total amount of prize money would be less that 1% of what the Slipper winner will pocket on Saturday. Add to that, the fact that should you be lucky enough to get a colt into the race, and should that colt win… as well as the $3.5 million in prize money you would receive, your colt would instantly be valued at much more than $25 million dollars.
In racing our only choice is to dream big. Who doesn’t think of a Golden Slipper, or Caulfield Cup or even a Melbourne Cup when they enter into a horse? In the stable at the minute we have a Star Witness colt, and a Spirit of Boom colt. Both have been knocked down to us, and both at this stage have a chance to be in the 2020 Golden Slipper and acquire the stud sales fee that accompanies the win! Because horses are only two once, and the Slipper is only for two-year-olds...and what is the old saying…you’ve got to be in it to win it. At this stage (along with 2,000 or so others) we are in it!
Come racing with us, and you just never know!
