PORTREE IN MOTION WINS HER FIRST RACE!
Jan 23, 2016
Portree In Motion opened her winning account with a most impressive win at Yarra Glen on Saturday. Having just her second start in a race (after placing on debut), she was ridden positively from the barrier and was always in a commanding position before running away to beat a very good maiden field in easy style over the last 100m.
Trained at Cranbourne by 'Gentleman' John Price, Portree In Motion is a 3yo filly by Strategic from Isle Of Skye and was originally purchased for $13,500 for Grand Syndicates at the 2014 Magic Millions Yearling Sale in Adelaide. When we found a small problem early on with her though, she was withdrawn from public syndication and offered privately in a very small partnership at cost price to some of our existing clients with the trainer and myself both retaining a share. Going on the ease of her win, she certainly looks to be worth considerably more than her purchase price now, and if she carries on her good form displayed to date, she should give her owners plenty of fun and excitement as her career develops...
