Progressive Queensland sprinter Real King provided an instant reward for a group of new owners at Doomben.
Now the winner of his last three starts, Real King will head to the spelling paddock to be prepared for a tilt at Saturday grade after the Winter Carnival.
“He has done a super job this time in. He is really starting to put it all together mentally and he might be a handy horse going forward,” said Ontrack principal Grant Morgan.
Morgan welcomed several new owners into Real King less than seven days before the Doomben win.
“We like to release shares back to the market in horses we have confidence in. There is no better way to get people into ownership by pitching a tried horse like this which is about to race.”
“The last time we did one of these it was just before Faster Son debuted. He won by 6 lengths and went on to win 7 races, was stakes placed and ran in an Oakleigh Plate.” said Morgan
“There are some similarities between Real King and Faster Son. Both extremely fast horses out of the gate, both tough and both a bit quirky.”
Real King is now the winner of 4 of his 8 starts with a further 3 placings.
Congratulations to the original ownership group of Vicky Heathcote, Bill Clough, John O’Leary, The Oakleigh Boys Synd (Arthur Rickard), Glynton Chislett and Andrew Black.
Welcome and congratulations to new owners Lauren Clough, Christine O’Leary, Ian Mathieson, Neville Sforcina, Haimes Racing, Beau Nunan, Eddy Brown, Darren Smeath, Peter Dunn +Synd, J & K Farrell Synd, Tony Holland + Synd and Dan McHugh.
