Greta West Stud sold a Reset colt for $80,000 at the Melbourne Premier Sale and resident stallions God's Own and Keep The Faith capped off a great week with interstate winners Tidy Prophet and Pillar Of Creation.
The Reset colt was purchased by Boomer Bloodstock acting on behalf of Group 1 WA trainer Lindsey Smith. Greta West also sold an Americain - Tottenham Girl colt for $42,500 at Oaklands and he's another heading west after being purchased by Perth agent Noel Carter of Commercial Bloodstock.
Tidy Prophet (Keep The Faith) won the Port Lincoln Cup (1950m) on Friday and she's paid up for the G2 Adelaide Cup next Monday.
Pillar Of Creation (God's Own) is also being targeted for black-type by trainer Tony Sears. The rejuvenated Contract Racing galloper broke a long run of outs on February 20 and he doubled up in the Hotel LA Open Hcp (1350m) back at Doomben on Saturday.
Sears is setting him for the LR Weetwood Hcp (1200m) at Toowoomba on April 16. "It's good to see him win again and it was a great ride from Brad (Pengelly)," Sears said. "He's going a lot better now after we changed a few things around.
"My daughter Madison has been doing a lot of work on him and deserves a lot of the credit. He seems to have turned the corner now and should be a great chance in the Weetwood."
