Well-performed All Stars stable trotter Prince Fearless, unplaced in two spring starts for Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen, has joined the Aylesbury barn of Stephen Boyd.
He has his first trial since being transferred to Boyd at Addington on Wednesday.
“I’ve pre-trained him a couple of times for Mark and Natalie. They thought it was best he come here and try him using the water-walker and see how we go,” said Boyd.
Prince Fearless, a six-year-old Majestic Son gelding, scored a brilliant 13 and ½ lengths win on New Zealand Cup Day in November 2015.
“If he goes good on Wednesday, I might have to run him in the Free-For-All on Cup Day, or else he probably won’t get a start in the Dominion (Show Day),” Boyd said.
Prince Fearless, a former Hambletonian Classic winner at three, won three of 11 starts in Victoria last term and he has lifetime earnings of $183,815.
