Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie expects to get more offers for smart restricted class sprinter Amanaat after the gelding made it four straight wins for the stable.
Amanaat is looming as one of the best buys Currie has ever made on his regular trips to dispersal sales in NSW and Victoria.
The gelding was a winner at Pakenham at his first race start but then failed at Flemington and Mornington in two more starts in Victoria for Lindsay Park.
Currie was able to pick him up for just $5000 at a dispersal sale earlier this year and he has won four of five starts for the stable including his victory at Doomben on Saturday.
“He hasn’t got the best looking legs but he has been as sound as a bell for us up here,” Currie said.
“If there is a problem with him he can get a stirred up in the barriers. It was the reason for his only defeat here when he was second at the Sunshine Coast at his first go for us.
“But we are working hard on him and he has now won four in a row.”
Currie said after Amanaat won at Ipswich he had fielded offers for the gelding from “overseas”.
“I think they will be back on the phone now, but the price has gone up,” Currie said.
He has been successful selling horses to Asia with Pure Luck ready to make his debut in Hong Kong.
Currie had a winner at Toowoomba on Saturday night to take him to 49 wins for the season and a clear lead in the Queensland trainers premiership.
