Leading Tasmanian breeders, Dr Vu Van Tu and Amanda Lockett have experienced an amazing season with their home bred, Silver Bullion, taking out the Kensington Stakes-LR at Flemington on Saturday (16 January).
The Tassie pair enjoyed success in the late 90s when Sedation – whom they bred and owned – won five stakes races including the Sandown Guineas-G2, but it’s unlikely they’ve experienced anything like the run of late.
Apart from Silver Bullion, another of their Bel Esprits in Taiyin won at Launceston in November, while they also produced the first Bel Esprit 2YO winner for the season when Strike The Tiger scored by a whopping at Devonport on 6 January.
Fortunately for the pair, they will offer a half brother a half brother to Silver Bullion at the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale at Launceston on Tuesday 23 February: Lot 69
Nothing beats timing!
