The story of King Midas is only a fairytale, but Dr Vu Van Tu and Amanda Lockett are both well in ‘touch’ with the winners’ circle of late with impressive Bel Esprit 2YO Strike The Tiger winning his first two starts (the first by eight lengths) and another of their Bel Esprits in Silver Bullion taking out the Kensington Stakes-LR at Flemington two weeks ago.
Well, they were back at it again at Hobart today (31 January) when yet another of their Bel Esprits – this time a ‘name combo’ in Silver Strike – grabbed the AAMI Summer Carnival 2YO (940m) in a thrilling finish.
Nothing beats timing and both Dr Vu and Amanda will sell a half brother to both Silver Bullion and Silver Strike at the Tasmanian Magic Millions at Launceston on 23 February.
Entering the ring as Lot 69, it’s hard to see anything topping such an in form colt.
