NO DEAL FOR WA BOOM HORSE

An offer of $1m has not been enough to turn heads in the West for boom three-year-old Trix Of The Trade as heavy hitters from the East attempted to buy the up and coming juvenile after a recent win in his first black type race in January

No sale for Trix Of The Trade

The exceptional three year old has been in high demand after an offer of $1m was put on the table having won 5 from 6 starts including the Listed WA Breeders Plate last month.


However the owners of Trix Of The Trade haven’t had their heads turned despite the seven figure offer and turned down any initial figure.

Trainer Colin Webster explained, the owners are in no mood to sell after finding a stable star.

“The owner refused a million dollars for him. The owner, Bill Robinson and his wife Pat, Bill‘s 90 and Pat’s 88, they don’t really need the money and if they sold him, what would they do?,” Webster said.

“They‘ve been looking all their life for a horse like him. They think if they sold him, there’s nowhere to go really. They’ve got plenty of other horses, but they’re not as good as this fella.”

With the ownership group and connections happy to stick with the three-year-old the goal appears to be a tilt towards the WATC Derby at Group 2 Level.

“We‘d like to get him there if we could,” Webster said.

“We‘ll just go the traditional way to the Derby providing he holds up well. At the moment he’s thriving, so we’re just hoping we can keep going and space his runs out.”

His next task will be Saturday‘s Listed Challenge Stakes at Ascot over 1500m.

“That‘s an extra 100m on what he’s done last start. As we increase his distances a bit we just hope he can measure up,” Webster said

Trix Of The Trade’s sister Tricky Trix has also hit a recent purple patch having won three on the trot and five of her past seven for trainer Willie Parker up in Geraldton.
