Impressive last start Addington winner Its Official Babe has been sold to American interests.

The daughter of Art Official, co-bred, raced and trained to this point by Timaru’s Colin Harrison, flashed home from last to win at Addington on June 29.

Harrison confirmed that she has already left his stable for a spelling facility and she was expected to fly to New York at short notice.

In other American sale news, hardy Canterbury pacer Gunpowder has also been sold Stateside.

Co-owner Mitchell Robertson confirmed a deal had been completed on the 110-start pacer, which started life with Bruce Hutton and has been trained by Robertson's father Peter more recently.
