Patiently handled Tavistock four-year-old Somethinaboutharry looks to have a bright future after breaking maiden ranks at his second start at Sale on Thursday.
Prepared by astute horseman Patrick Payne for Hong Kong-based Price Bloodstock, Somethinaboutharry was still back near the rear of the field with 200m left to run, but let down powerfully to win going away.
“He is pretty smart and he won very comfortably,” winning rider Michael Dee said.
“I was a little bit held up on the home corner but he was always travelling like he was going to let down very strong and it was just a matter of getting to the outside.
“I didn’t have to use the whip and there was still a bit left underneath me and there was a bit of greenness as well. There is plenty of upside.”
Identified by well-regarded bloodstock agent John Foote, Somethinaboutharry was purchased for $75,000 from the draft of Brighthill Farm at the 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale.
