Red Belly is offering its members the chance to race a horse with Ed, along with Newcastle Knights NRL star Jarrod Mullen and recently retired dual international Craig Gower.
Ed has been keen to race a horse with master Queensland trainer Rob Heathcote for some time, and after consultation with Rob and renowned syndicator Brad Spicer of Spicer Thoroughbreds, they have found one they like.
It’s a filly by Casino Prince (sire of All Too Hard), out of the Group 3 winning mare A Country Girl, who took out the 2007 The Millie Fox Stakes.
A Country Girl’s dam Verdict Declared is a full sister to former champion Mr Innocent, a winner of the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 in 2000, along with the Group 2 Premiere Stakes and the Group 3 Tramway Handicap.
Rob’s work with Group 1 performers Buffering and Solzhenitsyn speaks for itself, and the horse Red Belly is already racing with Spicer Thoroughbreds, Fantome Gris, proved competitive at Stakes level during the Spring Carnival.
The class of horses in Brisbane is generally inferior to Sydney, so there will hopefully be opportunities to win races with this filly, but of course nothing is guaranteed in racing.
A 10% share in the filly costs $16,000 plus GST. The share price includes breaking in, insurance, all agistment and training fees up until 31st of April, floating, minor vet bills, & sales vetting. 5% shares are also available on request, at a cost of $8,000.
NOTE: Ed, Jarrod and Craig are all investing their own money into this horse, no deals have been done for reduced price or free shares.
