LOT 1809 - Bullet Train x Reinvent 15' (c) - Purchased by Matthew C. Smith Racing for $20,000

Sale Notes from Matthew Smith

Quality colt, will improve out of sight over next few months once we get him into work, laid back, easy going, great attitude colt, great length, light on his feet and very athletic. He was confident as he walked and for me everything was in the right place. He is also a son out of a sister that we currently have in training with us, HOW SWEET IT IS. She is now a 4 time 3YO winning filly and she goes good. It always helps when you have trained a family member, you can get to grips with them fairly quickly. Delighted to secure him for only $20,000. BARGAIN!!
