Belong To Many
Apr 15, 2009
Belong To Many ran another very good race at Randwick on Saturday in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes. She did not jump as well as she has been and was unable to cross the field to lead. There was quite a bit of pace on and she took a sit just behind the pace.
She did hit the front in the straight but found one too strong on the day. She was brave and honest and held off the rest of the field to finish 2nd.
That was her swansong for us and she headed to the sales yesterday where she had (or the syndicate had) another very big win. There was enormous interest in her and as she entered the arena the auction ring swelled with prospective buyers as well as owners who were there to bid her farewell. After a short bidding war she was knocked down to Vin Cox as agent for $525,000. This is a fantastic result for the syndicate. Add this to the $444,160 she earned on the racetrack and she has earnt close to $1mill. A remarkable return for a $20,000 purchase.
We now start looking for the next BTM. Hopefully we can find one amongst the 6 new horses we are selling in Hancox Racing No 4 Limited.
