Premier Kiwi trainer Tim Butt was looking to the future in making the leap from New Zealand to Menangle last year – and his latest crop of yearling purchases is now providing prospective owners with the same opportunity.

Team Butt was buzzing with excitement at some of the top-line babies they secured at the recent APG sales, and settling the youngsters in to their state-of-the-art surrounds has only boosted their confidence.

“We’ve had terrific early interest from owners because these youngsters are beautifully-bred, but a share in them is still very affordable,” Tim said.

“But they’ve settled in well, they’re smart and we’re really keen about the potential of all of them,” he said.

The babies will certainly get their best chance to produce the goods. Tim Butt has trained more Grand Circuit Winners than any other trainer in Australasia, including champions such as great Lyell Creek and My Field Marshal (who currently holds the Australasian record of 1:46.9 in his 2018 Miracle Mile Victory).

“We think these four yearlings represent some of the world’s best stallions and Down Under's best mares, and we’re hoping the affordability of an interest will attract new clients, potentially even international clients, to enjoy the thrill of harness racing in Australia,” Tim said.
