My stable had a hand of 2 (1 EM) already with Littorio and Guillotine ready for action. The thought earlier in the week was to use some of the surplus funds that I had ($150K), drop Raheeb and Predatory Pricer and buy a $25K horse plus the Hussler.
Not happening. You are either a believer or you aren't at this stage and I am a non-believer.
So my $275K had a lot of options. I was looking at a package of horses that included Nom De Jeu, Red Ruler, Master O and the Valley.
Nom De Jeu at $200K seemed like poor value compared to the better gate and Kelt run from Red Ruler, so in goes Red Ruler. Change left over bought Master O.
My stables other interest will come from Red Lord either sneaking into the field or running in the crappy Group 2 cup.
Weekend non-runners: Samantha Miss, Dreamscape, Whobegotyou, Rhyno Chaser and Bianca to carry the drinks.
C. Williams on his last chance with the stable. 2 wins or he is out on his ass.
