PORTELLI EXCITED BY THE CHANCES OF PROMISING COLT

Gary Portelli is expecting big things from his new colt and the son of Not A Single Doubt when he makes his debut under the lights at Canterbury on Friday



Bil Colyns will make his debut tonight for the stable in the Stud and Stable Staff Awards Handicap over 1200m at the New South Wales track and Portelli is pumped to see his 2 year old in action.

“I think he has got huge potential for later on,” Portelli said. “I love the way he stretches out when you ask him.

“He is a beautifully bred horse that is going to get further. So from barrier one, he should get every chance to get a nice run in transit and I would like to see him finishing off.

“He then more than likely has a little break and maybe aim up at something later in the carnival like the Champagne Stakes.

Portelli, a part owner in the horse along with a large syndication has been a fan of the horse since he first saw him go to auction on the Gold Coast a year ago. 

“I bought him off Gerry Harvey at the night session,” Portelli said.

“I loved the horse, I loved the way he walked. He has a great big walk and movement through his hips and pelvis and he just looked like he was going somewhere, so I really wanted to buy him.

“He was the horse I targeted at the sale and I found out that the reserve would be about $150,000 so I made sure I bid $150,000 when that bid was available and there was no one left so I got him for that.

“I think that is pretty cheap looking forward because I think potentially he is a very nice colt.”

The promising colt is a $9.50 shot to take out Race 1 but it is a hotly contest field with a number of first time starters making debuts. 

The favourite for the race is 2 year old filly Reinart making a first appearance for the John O’Shea stable and is $2.65 chance after winning a recent trial by 5 lengths.

Portelli will most likely be hoping to emulate the great talent of She Will Reign who helped him claim his maiden Golden Slipper win just a few years ago.
