The Matty Ellerton/Simon Zahra trained 3YO is simply getting better with age, having won two on the trot at Kyneton when resuming in October and followed up with a fourth at Caulfield and a gutsy third at headquarters in the lead up to Saturday’s victory.
Utah Saints (named, we think, after the British dance band) has now crossed the $100k threshold and clearly has it all in front of him.
Bred by David Kobritz’s DHK Investments, Utah Saints was sold for $150,000 at the 2009 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale and is out of the Flemington stakes placed Maroof mare, Hard Rider.
Utah Saints is a half brother to three winners and hails from the family of Group One winners Hello Dolly, She’s a Meanie and Art Success.
