Promising Southland filly Alfie Romeo has been sold and will do her future racing in West Australia.
Greg and Skye Bond have purchased the daughter of Washington VC, who was a last-start winner at Gore for trainer Des Baynes.
A couple of starts prior she was a brave fifth behind Dibaba in the Group 2 Southland Oaks final.
The Bonds have had good success buying out of Baynes’ stable in recent times, most notably with 2017 Inter Dominion heat winner Galactic Star ($309,662).
The leading Perth trainers are also close to a deal to purchase exciting three-year-old Mighty Conqueror out of the Invercargill stable of Mark and Debbie Shirley.
Mark Shirley confirmed a deal was in place for the winner of three of his four career starts and he was soon to be vetted after bumping his leg over the weekend.
