JUSTIN Vermaak is attending the 2017 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale and he tweeted earlier this week, “I’ve seen some smart young horses here!”
So he went and bought two colts for syndication, on the way to trainer James Peters in Singapore – and wanted it on the GSB website for share sales, but both were fully subscribed before their photos even reached the site!
Justin is becoming quite the star at selecting “cheap” purchases that show a quick return and here are two that may well fit the mould again:
The headline photo is of the athletic Lot 1819, a colt by Congrats from a mare by Flying Spur bought for $AUS25,000.
Below is Lot 2277, a chestnut colt by Zoffany (IRE), from Shao Shao, by Shinko Forest, whose previous foals included South African top-level performer Samurai Blade. His purchase price was $20,000.
